Major Success in Extra Fast Charging Battery Program Advances to Optimised Commercial Cells

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited is very pleased to announce that the game changing results announced on 24 July 2020 for EFC batteries, have progressed with a decision made to commence the program on optimised commercial cells developed by Magnis partner, Charge CCCV, LLC.

  • Following the ongoing success of Extra Fast Charging (EFC) results using unoptimised cells, for the next phase of Original Equipment Manufacturer (0EM) qualification, battery cells optimised for very fast charge will be used
  • Over 1000 charges have been conducted to date with capacity maintaining strength above 80%
  • EFC allows 85% charge in 6 minutes
  • A 12-month demonstration program funded by NYSERDA, which includes BAE Systems and Consolidated Edison on EFC batteries in Electric Buses begins
  • Major interest shown by overseas OEM’s

Magnis Energy Technologies Limited (“Magnis”, or the “Company”) (ASX:MNS) is very pleased to announce that the game changing results announced on 24 July 2020 for EFC batteries, have progressed with a decision made to commence the program on optimised commercial cells developed by Magnis partner, Charge CCCV, LLC. (“CCV”).

EFC Results

Cycling results from an unoptimised commercial size cell to date, using CCV technology, has produced exciting results, with the cycling life retention over 1000 cycles, with a 6 minute charge and 1 hour discharge. The unoptimised cell is within 99% energy density of a regular energy cell, which means minimal energy density loss for a super fast charge cell. Following the exciting results, a decision has been made to commence testing of EFC on optimised composition of commercial cells.

Battery cells optimised for very fast charging are required to maximise charging energy efficiency, battery life and, most importantly, safety. Magnis technology partner, CCV, is at the forefront of this technology development and has been working with end users including commercial EV manufacturers, to develop a future proof design for EFC batteries, with a focus on low cost and sustainable supply chain. Several European OEM’s have expressed interest in the technology with initial discussions being undertaken in recent weeks, with confidentiality agreements having been executed.

New York Demonstration Program

A demonstration program in New York has commenced for a Public Transit Technology and Innovation Program funded by NYSERDA, with a proposal to develop EFC system utilising extended—life batteries provided by CCV with its BMLMP technology.

The technology in planned to be developed in Binghamton, New York US, and tested at BAE Systems before being installed for some New York City bus routes. The plan is to remove 50D,D00 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually from the New York City metro area, whilst increasing energy efficiency and lowering upfront costs versus the current system.

Consolidated Edison will be responsible for charging, with bus stops equipped with robotic arms that have the ability reach down from the overhead electric wires and connect to the buses’ batteries to recharge them in 5 to 10 minutes.

Magnis Chairman Frank Poullas commented: “The response from our fast charging announcement has been amazing with a number of major OEM’s contacting Magnis with discussions having kicked off.”

“Today’s announced results are another step forward in this exciting technology and we look forward to receiving the results from the commercial cell program in the near future.”

Rio Tinto reaches agreement with Turquoise Hill Resources on financing plan for Oyu Tolgoi

Rio Tinto has entered into a binding Heads of Agreement (HoA) with Turquoise Hill Resources (TRQ) for an updated funding plan (the “Funding Plan”) for the completion of the Oyu Tolgoi (OT) Underground Project in Mongolia. The Funding Plan addresses the estimated remaining known funding requirement of approximately $2.3 billion 1 , building on and replacing the arrangements established in the Memorandum of Understanding that Rio Tinto and TRQ previously entered into on 9 September, 2020.

Under the HoA, subject to securing approval by OT LLC and any required support from the Government of Mongolia, and subject to timing, availability, and terms and conditions being acceptable to both parties, Rio Tinto and TRQ will:
