  • Existing anode technologies are approaching their limits. Some researchers believe that the future of Anode Materials for the Li-ion technology is focusing on Carbon, Silicon and Silicon-Carbon Composite. Because Nanoscale silicon provides the best combination of capacity and power, but still not sufficient cycle life and nano-scale production approaches remain expensive.  Carbon helps silicon work better.  Traditional carbon coatings on silicon are proved to help and are consider essential for any commercial silicon product today.  Insulating the silicon from the electrolyte is necessary for good cycle life performance.
  • MTI provides the total solution for new Anode Materials for the Li-ion technology from raw chemicals to equipment.
