Johnson Matthey obtains license for the GEMX superior battery materials platform from CAMX Energy

Johnson Matthey (JM) has obtained a license from CAMX Energy referring to the GEMX platform of nickel-based excessive vitality excessive energy cathode supplies (earlier publish) to be used in lithium-ion batteries particularly for electrical autos (EVs).

The GEMX platform is predicated on a elementary invention of CAMX for which patents have been granted within the US, EU, Japan and China. The invention creates a broad class of cathode supplies, overarching the high-nickel materials lessons NMC, NCA and LNO—the chemistries at present used, and anticipated for use within the subsequent ten years or extra—in lithium-ion batteries for EVs.

The invention has been named GEMX and the ensuing enhanced chemistries, gNMC, gNCA, and gLNO.

The GEMX invention, by means of molecular engineering, locations cobalt on the essential locations of the cathode particles leading to using much less cobalt, but with better stability, greater efficiency and decrease value for all lessons of excessive nickel supplies.

We're happy to have obtained this additional license from CAMX to assist JM’s growth of extremely excessive vitality density automotive battery cathode supplies. Including the GEMX platform additionally offers us a broader chemistry panorama to which we are able to apply JM’s experience in supplies design, growth, scale up and manufacturing.

—Alan Nelson, Sector Chief Govt and CTO at JM

Johnson Matthey bought a license for the CAM-7 platform of CAMX in 2016. Utilizing its personal processing applied sciences and different understand how Johnson Matthey efficiently developed eLNO and is at present commercializing the expertise. With the GEMX license JM can additional improve eLNO in addition to take a complicated place in different materials lessons corresponding to NCA and NMC, mentioned Dr. Kenan Sahin, president and founding father of CAMX.
