Lyten, a leading developer of lithium-sulfur battery technology, has achieved over 90% yield on its automated pilot production line in Silicon Valley, marking a significant milestone in the manufacturability of lithium-sulfur batteries using lithium metal anodes and sulfur cathodes.

The company has demonstrated the feasibility of manufacturing lithium-sulfur batteries using existing lithium-ion manufacturing infrastructure, with a conversion process time of only 6 weeks and a cost of less than 2% of total capital. This accomplishment highlights the opportunity to rapidly scale production with minimal cost and time.

Environmental and Economic Benefits

In addition, Lyten’s lithium-sulfur batteries eliminate the need for the use of NMP (N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone) in the production of cathodes, thereby reducing health, safety, and environmental risks. The batteries are also highly tolerant of metal contamination, which reduces the capital and operating expenses associated with metal contamination in today’s battery manufacturing processes.

By eliminating the use of nickel, cobalt, manganese, or graphite in the cathode and anode, Lyten’s batteries can be completely locally sourced and manufactured, offering the potential for high yields (98%+) at scale. Lyten aims to deliver commercial lithium-sulfur cells for aerospace and government applications in 2024. The company plans to expand into EVs, trucking, space, and other sectors.

Future Outlook for Lyten and Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

Founded in 2015, Lyten is a supermaterials applications company focused on decarbonization applications, including lithium-sulfur batteries, polymer composites, and advanced sensors. The company has over 415 issued or pending patents and is based in San Jose, California. In order to address the increasing interest from various industries, Lyten is getting ready for mass market adoption by focusing on engineering, design, equipment acquisition, and facility evaluation to scale up lithium-sulfur battery manufacture.
