Arkema, IREQ research agreement developing  new fluoride electrolyte

COLOMBES, FRANCE: Arkema and Institut de recherche d'Hydro-Quebec (IREQ) have reached a collaborative research agreement for the development of a new highly safe electrolyte from fluoride and non-fluoride salts produced by Arkema. Accordingly, Arkema has signed a licensing contract on the technology of its fluoride salts to IREQ which will hold intellectual property rights.

This cooperation venture is excellent news for both the automotive and the electrification of private and public transport industries, which are seeking high-quality cost-effective technologies for the development of materials for electric batteries. This new electrolyte will be suitable for use in lithium-ion and lithium-polymer battery technologies - both already on the market and next generation.

“This partnership is strategic for Arkema: it will enable us to speed up our developments and validate our solutions for batteries thanks to IREQ’s world-renowned expertise in lithium-ion batteries. This collaboration is a boost to Arkema’s commitment to the development of renewable energies,” explained Ian Cayrefourcq, Director - Emerging Technologies, Arkema.
