# # #About Lyten 3D Graphene™ Lyten 3D Graphene™ is a proprietary, tunable decarbonization supermaterial engineered from natural gas. Lyten’s 3D Graphene is similar to two-dimensional graphene in many of its valuable properties, however, 3D Graphene can be orders of magnitude more chemically and electrically reactive while also being highly tunable due to its three-dimensional morphology. The processes and equipment to engineer three-dimensional graphene materials are proprietary technological inventions patented by Lyten. Lyten will scale its initial output from its San Jose, California facility and will soon explore locations for a second phase of output capacity. About LytCell EV™ Lithium-Sulfur battery LytCell™ is Lyten’s proprietary Lithium-Sulfur battery that uses Lyten 3D Graphene™ to address the polysulfide shuttle challenges associated with sulfur, leading to a higher-performance battery that will have more than twice the energy density, and enables extended driving range compared to conventional EV batteries. Unlike lithium-ion and solid-state batteries, LytCell™ does not use expensive and scarce nickel or cobalt, will have an estimated 60+ percent lower carbon footprint than best-in-class lithium-ion, and an estimated 40 percent lower carbon footprint than solid state. The LytCell will be domestically and sustainably sourced, liberating manufacturers and consumers from supply chain risks and environmentally unsound mining issues associated with nickel-manganese-cobalt oxide (NMC) materials. About LytR™ LytR™ is Lyten’s unique thermoplastic formulation – infused with Lyten 3D Graphene™ – that reduces up to half the weight and materials required while maintaining or improving strength and performance. When Lyten 3D Graphene™ is tuned for dispersion into polyethylene, as with the LytR™ material, it significantly strengthens the thermoplastics’ chemical and physical properties, thereby requiring less polyethylene material and reducing the carbon footprint by up to 55%. About Lyten Lyten is a materials innovation and applications company and the pioneer of the Lyten 3D Graphene™ materials platform. Lyten’s decarbonization supermaterials are being tuned for a wide range of applications, including the next-generation Lithium-Sulfur batteries for use in the automotive, aerospace, defense, and other markets; a next-generation LytR™ polymer composite that can reduce the amount of plastic used by up to half while maintaining structural and impact strength; and next-generation sensor arrays that significantly increase detection sensitivity and selectivity for use in automotive, industrial, health, and safety applications. Lyten is led by a group of experienced executives from across Automotive, Energy, Batteries, Semiconductors, Manufacturing and Defense, lists more than 300 patent matters, and is currently manufacturing Lyten 3D Graphene material, as well as its LytCell™ EV batteries, in San Jose, California. Lyten was founded in 2015.
