Newly deSPACed Solidion Technology Says its Lithium-Sulfur Batteries Poised to Accelerate eVTOL Aircraft Industry

For those who envision taking an air taxi to go from Manhattan to JFK Airport or from the San Francisco Airport to San Jose, California, without having to endure traffic jams or inhale carbon monoxide en route, this vision of the future may come true sooner than expected.

Solidion Technology, an advanced battery technology solutions provider, began trading Feb. 5 on the following a merger with Nubia Brand International. Solidion was formerly known as Honeycomb Battery Company.  

Electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft is the next urban transportation technology breakthrough. There are 288 companies in Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing Aircraft. At the heart of an eVTOL aircraft is a heavy battery pack. The amount of that can be stored in a battery pack with a reduced mass must be significantly increased before the eVTOL industry can literally take off.

The Solidion technical team began development of Li-S batteries in 2010. Solidion said it has built the most complete IP (including 100+ US patents and numerous international patents on Li-S batteries) and essential technologies for fully commercializing these ultra-high energy batteries. These technologies, covering protected lithium metal anode, quasi-solid or solid-state electrolyte and separator, graphene-enabled cathode, and innovative battery cell-to-pack designs, position Solidion to be a global leader in high-energy batteries for , the company said.

The same solid-state lithium-sulfur batteries have the potential to revolutionize the ground transportation with their inherent safety and doubled the range on a single charge, given the same battery weight.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with pilot production facilities in Dayton, Ohio, Solidion's core business includes manufacturing of battery materials and components, as well as development and production of next-generation batteries for energy storage systems and electric vehicles for ground, air, and sea transportation.
