Blackstone: Battery technology, Solid state battery and lithium represent the biggest structural trend in the 21st Century.
BAAR, Switzerland – (February 126, 2020) – Blackstone Resources AG (SWX: BLS) held one of its signature-conference events last Thursday at the Widder Hotel, Zurich.
The theme of the conference was on how batteries will reshape our global economy and play a significant role in our lives in the future. During the event, Blackstone’s experts spoke to its investors about some of the exciting projects the company is currently engaged in. These include its lithium exploration project in Chile and the launch of its battery technology programme in Erfurt, Germany.
Blackstone believes that mankind’s future will be determined by its ability to support a sustainable clean-energy world using battery technology. It considers the emergence of this theme to be one of the biggest structural trends of the twenty-first century. This vision has shaped the way the company operates today.
Below is a summary of some of the topics that were covered during the event.
Blackstone is currently exploring and developing several licence areas in the Antofogasta region, which covers more than 3,000 hectares. This is an area that is well-known for its lithium resources. This project forms part of Blackstone’s broader battery-metal portfolio, which it has built up over the years.
3D-printed battery technology
The patented 3D-printed battery technology that Blackstone has developed offers 25% more energy density than conventional lithium-ion batteries, due to its disruptive process technology. Almost any geometry in addition with thicker layers can be printed. Multi-layer batteries are also possible, which offer higher voltages at a cell level. This single fact can significantly reduce the cost in battery module production.
Solid-state battery technology
3D-printed battery technology is key to manufacturing solid-state batteries (SSBs) on a large scale. By developing solid-state battery printing technology, Blackstone will be able to double the energy density of the batteries it produces at a much lower cost. Moreover, it will be able to supply itself with its own battery metals during this process.
Blackstone Resources holds a diversified portfolio of invested interests across the battery supply chain. This includes battery metal mining interests, plus significant investments in battery technology. Both areas are expected to evolve into multi-billion-dollar markets in the future, presenting significant potential upside for the company. Exposure to these two areas also makes Blackstone the world's first truly vertically integrated battery technology company.
