Paraclete Energy introduces SM-Silicon/585™, the highest capacity, commercially viable, cycle-stable validated anode material available on the market today while being priced like graphite $/kWh.
Unlike what is on the market today at 430 mAh/g, those suppliers require that you also use their graphite and their fixed ratio of silicon to graphite. With Paraclete’s SM-Silicon/585™, the customer uses their preferred graphite they want to use, and they can add more or less SM-Silicon/585™, thereby changing the reversible capacity to meet the application requirements.
SM-Silicon/585™ also allows the customer to use a less expensive graphite and add the SM-Silicon/585™ until the desired capacity is achieved. This will make the total cell cost much less.
This is particularly advantageous given that SM-Silicon/585™ is five times less expensive than the silicon used in the ~430 mAh/g product already on the market.
Other companies will sell you a Silicon-Graphite Blend containing 92-96% Graphite with only 4-8% Silicon Oxide!
You are forced to use the graphite already contained in the blend at the existing ratio. This blend only provides 400-450 mAh/g.
Paraclete Energy offers SM-Silicon/585™, a Silicon-Graphite Composite containing 92-96% Silicon with only 4-8% Graphite & SM!
SM-Silicon/585™ is almost pure silicon, so you use it with whatever graphite you want and at the ratio you want! This composite can provide the energy capacity you need.
