OXIS, GP Batteries JV for commercialization of Li-S battery systems

OXFORDSHIRE, UK: OXIS Energy Limited and GP Batteries International Limited announced a joint manufacturing agreement to accelerate the commercialization of OXIS’ proprietary Lithium Sulfur (Li-S) battery systems for use in different energy sectors of the world market. GP Batteries is a major world-class manufacturer of primary and rechargeable batteries.

OXIS will benefit from the GP Batteries’ worldwide presence in developing sales of its Lithium Sulfur polymer battery systems into the defence, automotive and solar panel markets. The manufacturing strength of GP Batteries will provide a solid basis for the mass production of these Lithium Sulfur cells.

“This agreement is a quantum leap forward in our pursuit to showcase to the world OXIS’s breakthrough technology. With this partnership, OXIS has a world-class manufacturer for the mass production of polymer Li-S cells and battery systems. The collaboration will speed up the introduction of this remarkable technology for use in every imaginable energy sector. The expertise of both companies will have a significant impact in powering electric vehicles safely and over much longer distances than that of the current Lithium-Ion battery technology,” said Huw Hampson-Jones, CEO, OXIS.
