Maxwell Technologies Collaborates with US-Based Companies to Increase the Energy Density of Ultracapacitors

Maxwell Technologies, a manufacturer of energy storage products based on ultra-capacitors, declared that it will be provided with state and federal funds amounting more than $500,000 for collaborating with three US-based companies for energy storage R&D programs.

Maxwell's ultracapacitors used in transportation systems

Maxwell will be funded with more than $300,000 for collaborating with Yardney Technical Products, a battery manufacturer based in Connecticut, for R&D programs. The programs highlight the usage of Maxwell's patented solvent-free electrode fabrication technique to produce less-expensive material of lithium-ion battery electrode for better performance. It also favors the incorporation of Maxwell's high power-density ultracapacitors with Yardney's high energy-density batteries to obtain effective power storage devices for automobiles and other industrial applications.

Maxwell collaborates with two Ohio-based material producers to advance energy storage technology and has received more than $200,000. In the first program, the activated carbons manufactured by Calgon Carbon, will be tested and evaluated for providing a superior-performance, less-expensive carbon for ultracapacitor production. The second program is to increase ultracapacitor’s energy density by testing, evaluating and integrating graphene material produced by Dayton, Ohio-based Nanotek Instruments.

Maxwell's multi-cell and ultracapacitor cell models offer safety power sources for applications in telecommunications, automobile, and other electronic-based industries. CONDIS high-voltage, grading and coupling capacitors provide reliability and safety of electricity to infrastructure and other areas such as distribution, measurement, and transportation of high-voltage power.

The microelectronic, radiation-mitigated product ranges include memory modules, power modules, and huge single computers that integrate powerful silicon for high performance and reliability in aerospace industries.
