Texas A&M Innovation completed a license agreement with a startup company, Dimien Inc., for multiple technologies related to a new battery material developed in the lab of Dr. Sarbajit Banerjee, a professor in the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University.
Current batteries on the market use cathodes made of cobalt and nickel, minerals that are limited and costly to produce. These novel Texas A&M technologies create battery cathodes made of vanadium, which is low cost, easy to produce, extremely high performing, and safe to use. Dimien aims to continue development and commercialization of these licensed technologies to create next-generation, high-capacity batteries for use in electric vehicles and other battery storage applications.
