What does a mass market battery look like?

Lightweight

Nobody hopes for a heavier world. The future is lighter, stronger, and more efficient. A higher energy density battery will translate into lighter weight EVs, Trucks, Drones, Satellites, and so much more.

Abundant

Abundantly available minerals will replace today’s heavy reliance on mined critical minerals like nickel, cobalt, manganese and graphite.

Local

Locally-sourced raw materials. Locally manufactured anywhere in the world, including the Global South.

Low Cost

Forget cost parity. Mass market electrification requires indisputably lower cost than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles.

Manufacturable

The next generation battery will be manufactured in today’s gigafactories with today’s equipment, harnessing decades of learnings and scale.

Sustainable

Mining our way to a cleaner future is not going to cut it. Batteries made with abundant, locally sourced, non-mined minerals, manufactured with renewable power. That's the formula to a sustainable battery.

Lyten’s Lithium-Sulfur Architecture

Powering Multiple Form Factors

Lithium-Sulfur’s performance is perfect to electrify anything that moves. Lyten has begun the multi-year qualification process for EVs, Trucks, Delivery Vehicles, and Aviation. But, Lyten is also on target to deliver commercial ready batteries for Drones, Satellites, and Defense applications in 2024 and micromobility and mobile equipment in 2025.

Weight Matters.

When Less is More.

A sulfur cathode and lithium-metal anode have the potential to hold multiple times the energy density of current lithium-ion batteries.

Lyten uses that potential to build a practical battery without heavy minerals like nickel, cobalt, graphite, or iron and phosphorous. The result is an up to 50% weight reduction vs NMC and up to 75% weight reduction vs LFP.

Supply Chain Matters.

Easier Said Than Done.

Today, its not possible to buy a lithium-ion battery whose raw materials do not go through China. Instead of trying to rebuild the mining and processing supply chain, our mission is to simply eliminate it.

Lyten Lithium-Sulfur is the world leader in localized sourcing. We are nearly complete in building an entirely local supply chain in the US. Next up is the European Union, then the rest of the world.

“Lyten’s lithium-sulfur battery has the potential to be a key ingredient in enabling mass-market EV adoption globally, and their material technology is equally well positioned to help reduce vehicle weight, which is all necessary for our industry to achieve carbon net zero goals.”

Carlos Tavares, Stellantis CEO

“The Chrysler Halcyon Concept envisions incorporating breakthrough Lyten 800V lithium-sulfur EV batteries that do not use nickel, cobalt or manganese, resulting in an estimated 60% lower carbon footprint than today’s best-in-class batteries and a pathway to achieve the lowest emissions EV battery on the global market.”

Manufacturing Matters.

Drop In. But Easier.

The world can’t wait for a new chemistry requiring completely new manufacturing. The world is building gigafactories now. Lyten Li-S can be manufactured on the same equipment lines that fill gigafactories today. Well…almost. First, we can eliminate some of the equipment because we don’t need it!

Lyten Lithium-Sulfur’s automated pilot line in San Jose, CA was converted from a lithium-ion line for <3% of capital. That pilot line quickly ramped up to >90% yields for both pouch and cylindrical cells.

Cost Matters.

“I’d Like To Pay More” Said No One Ever.

The planet needs electrification, but people equally need access to low-cost energy and energy strorage. Its not a nice to have. It’s a human right.

Lyten is building a Lithium-Sulfur battery that has higher energy density than NMC but built with lower cost materials than LFP.

Carbon Footprint Matters.

It Starts With Cleaner Materials.

The removal of mined minerals is a great start. Add in 3D Graphene, sourced by sequestering carbon from methane. Then power your operations with renewable power and the result is the lowest carbon footprint battery on the planet.

Lyten’s manufacturing operations in San Jose, CA works in partnership with San Jose Clean Energy to run on renewable power.

Cradle-to-gate emissions from 28 battery chemistries analyzed by 10 peer reviewed LCAs (Life Cycle Analysis) compared to LCA for Lyten Li-S battery. LCA and comparison study completed by EcoEngineers.
