Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Atraverda’s Launch of a Radical Lead Acid Battery Technology

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Palo Alto, CA, United States, 2007/03/05 - Frost & Sullivan selected Atraverda as the recipient of the 2007 Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation for its introduction of bipolar substrate technology to the lead acid battery chemistry.

This bipolar solution has the Ebonex® Technology tag, is protected by worldwide patents, and is expected to create a major breakthrough in stationary lead acid and motive lead acid (MLA) battery markets. Atraverda is also exploring the exciting possibility of using the Ebonex technology in nickel metal hydride and lithium systems.

MLA batteries used in heavy-duty equipment as well as in railroad, airport, and mining applications demand rugged and robust construction and oftentimes, these batteries are bulky and are less efficient than other battery chemistries. MLA batteries that use the Ebonex® Technology are lighter, two times more efficient than conventional MLA batteries, and have reduced charging time.

"With the increasing demand in telecommunication and data communication segments, Atraverda will initially focus on the backup power (stationary) segment to achieve growth and full commercialization in the lead acid market," says Frost & Sullivan research analyst Suba Swaminathan. "The technology has significant benefits for the automotive sector and will also aid the motive segment significantly."

The Ebonex® Technology uses a ceramic that is a titanium suboxide material, which has a unique combination of metallic and ceramic substrate characteristics. The Ebonex® material used in batteries offers the conductivity of a metal along with excellent resistance to oxidation and acid corrosion.

"The cross section of the bipolar lead acid battery includes the electrodes, which are bipolar and electrolyte in an absorbed glass mat (AGM) form housed in a container with monopole electrodes at each end of the stack," notes Swaminathan. "The current flow in the battery is provided by endplates (monopoles) and the flow is complete when it flows orthogonally through each intermediate bipole plate in uniform fashion."

Some outstanding advantages of this technology include overall reduction in the usage of lead, making the batteries more environment-friendly and lightweight. This minimal use of lead also enables the shipment of more batteries in the same space and lower costs of transportation as well as offers respite from the escalating price of lead.

The simplicity in construction coupled with increased efficiency and maintenance-free structure has tremendous market appeal and has already secured initial users and partners for this technology.

Atraverda is in the process of signing more such agreements with leading battery market participants across all geographic regions. These agreements will globalize this technology, thereby ensuring improved efficiency and performance of MLA batteries in all motive power applications. It will also revive the lead acid battery market, which has suffered from limited product differentiation.

Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated technological superiority within its industry. This award recognizes the ability of the company to successfully develop and introduce technology, formulate a well-designed product family, and make significant product performance contributions to the industry.
