pH Matter, LLC (“the company”) is pleased to announce initiation of a $1 million product development project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy for engineered materials for lithium ion battery anodes.  Lithium ion batteries are being increasingly adopted for automotive power applications; however, the lithium capacity of the negative electrode (anode) limits the amount of energy these batteries can store.  Improvements to the anode would increase the energy density and lower the battery cost.  For electric vehicles, lower battery cost and higher energy density would increase the driving range of vehicles, accelerating their adoption.  pH Matter’s approach to improving
