Arkema, which has been cooperating with OXIS Energy since 2012, consolidates its partnership with this company, and has engaged in a new capital-raising operation.


Accordingly, the Group will continue to develop “customized” solutions thanks to its expertise in fluorochemicals involving new electrolyte salts (LI-FSI and LI-TDI), and thanks to its carbon nanotubes and its high added value technical polymers: all of these innovative solutions indeed play a role in improving the lifetime and the energy density of lithium-sulfur batteries.


This investment aims to market and mass-produce, in the medium term, rechargeable lithium-sulfur batteries for the transportation market.

At Advanced Automotive Battery Conference to be held in Strasbourg (France) from 27 to 31 January 2019, Arkema will present its last innovative solutions and materials to improve lifetime, energy density, power and fast charge performances without compromising on safety for Li-Ion batteries.
