Lithium-Sulfur Batteries.
Electrify Everything.


Goodbye Graphite. No more Nickel, Manganese, and Cobalt.

A cathode with no NMC, built with abundantly available materials.

Already producing cells with energy densities (Wh/kg) exceeding conventional Li-Ion.

Ultra-lightweight cells designed to electrify mobility and aerospace at up to 2X greater energy density than conventional Li-Ion cells.

Designed for 100% local materials sourcing and manufacturing

Local battery materials sourcing and manufacturing for geographies possessing natural gas, sulfur, and lithium-containing deposits combine to eliminate the risk of today’s conventional Li-Ion extended and conflicted supply chain.

The battery for mass market electrification

Lithium-Ion battery chemistries have made electrification possible, but multiple barriers stand in the way of making mass market electrification with Lithium-Ion a reality: heavy dependency on mined minerals, supply chain constraints, costs, and thermal runaway risk.

Our mission is to use Lyten 3D Graphene supermaterials to deliver a battery that makes electrifying everything possible. Instead of trying to incrementally improve Lithium-Ion chemistry, we chose to utilize Lithium-Sulfur battery chemistry.

Lithium-Sulfur has been known for decades as an extremely high energy density, lightweight chemistry that requires no nickel, cobalt, or manganese in the cathode, and no graphite in the anode, and an improved safety profile. But the technology wasn’t expected to progress until the 2030’s — that is, until we developed Lyten 3D Graphene. We’re using our supermaterial to make the Lithium-Sulfur battery a reality — years ahead of schedule.

Energy density is just the start. Lyten’s Lithium-Sulfur can deliver a wide range of other improvements.

Higher performing: Targeting greater than 2 times the energy density (Wh/kg) of lithium-ion, creating a fundamentally lighter weight battery that operates over a wider temperature range.

Safer: Strong resistance to overcharge and puncture failure modes, without the use of oxides that can cause runaway thermal reaction.

100% locally sourced and manufactured: The removal of nickel, cobalt, and manganese from the cathode and graphite from the anode means a massively simplified supply chain, enabling battery manufacturing anywhere and a bill of materials 50% lower than lithium-ion.

Manufacturable using existing lithium-ion equipment: Only minor modifications required to convert to Lithium-Sulfur.

Lowest carbon footprint: Lyten’s Lithium-Sulfur architecture has been independently verified to have a greater than 60% lower carbon footprint than best-in-class lithium-ion.

What makes Lithium-Sulfur a gamechanger

Lithium-Sulfur Manufacturing

Lyten opened its first Lithium-Sulfur Pilot Production Line in June 2023.  The semi-automated line is producing both cylindrical and pouch cells and is located in San Jose, CA alongside Lyten’s 3D Graphene manufacturing facility.  The pilot line will deliver cells for auto OEM testing in 4Q 2023 and will begin delivering commercial grade cells for non-EV applications in 2024.
