CEO message

Our company was established to spread our technology “a specific ionic liquid is applicable to lithium-ion batteries as electrolyte” found out firstly by the current CEO and former COO research group. We have actually substantiated this technology as suitable electrolyte to batteries for aerospace application and succeeded in enhancing battery performance by continuous developing with space operation partners. Moreover, we successfully developed outstanding-performance binder to enhance electrode strength and durability. Our binder currently receives a remarkable attention from battery industry. Our major technologies like them are build-out from research in Electrochemistry Laboratory Kansai University. We have confidence in finding effective solutions to world-wide battery material needs as members of a distinguished company originated from Kansai University.
