Magnesium enables higher energy density batteries than Li-ion through substantial capacity improvements at both cathode (two electrons per Mg-ion) and anode (metal). Despite decades of research, previous attempts to develop energy dense Mg batteries did not reach commercial scale.
Pellion Technologies was founded by a team of MIT researchers leveraging high-throughput computational materials design to speed innovation in energy storage materials and chemistry.
Pellion has discovered a series of fundamental breakthroughs in materials, chemistry, and cell design. By combining these innovations, Pellion’s demonstration devices now perform at energy densities >1000 Wh/L. We build test cells by the thousand and prototype cells up to the 2Ah capacity level.
