Abstract Scope Xerion Advanced Battery Corp, founded in 2010, is in the process of commercializing a single-step molten hydroxide electroplating process to manufacture lithiated transition metal oxide (LTMO) cathodes. Xerion’s process benefits from the combined synthesis and electrode formation in just one step – revolutionizing the current commercial slurry-electrode manufacturing process (>20 steps). In this talk, the importance of crystal texture will be discussed. Xerion has found that controlling the crystal orientation improves the fast charge performance and delays the onset of thermal run-away. Furthermore, a business case will be provided for the use of LCO for automotive applications despite the current opinion that LCO is too expensive outside of the consumer electronic space. Xerion’s cost models show, at scale, our process can produce LCO / graphite cells at $45/kWh by utilizing low purity lithium and cobalt sulfate as opposed to battery grade >99.5% purity precursors.
