I am an of CLB Europe Battery Material Innovators
CLB Europe is the developer and manufacturer of a new transformational high capacity silicon carbon lithium battery anode material that triples the capacity of a battery to store energy.

Company and Technology Summary
Next-generation Li-ion batteries (”LIBs”) for electric vehicles, smart phones and energy storage systems are expected to use Si based anodes to replace current graphite anodes because Si has the highest theoretical capacity (10X vs graphite) to store energy amongst all LIB anode materials. Unfortunately, because of stability issues caused by the dramatic swelling silicon creates during LIB lithiation and delithiation (aka-pulverization) its very high capacity potential to store energy in a LIB has not been fully exploited and realized.
CLB Europe and its global CLB affiliates are pleased to introduce SiCAM™ (Silicon Carbon Anode Material), a disruptive, very high specific capacity, stable anode material that overcomes many of the silicon anode performance and manufac...

Company and Technology Summary
Next-generation Li-ion batteries (”LIBs”) for electric vehicles, smart phones and energy storage systems are expected to use Si based anodes to replace current graphite anodes because Si has the highest theoretical capacity (10X vs graphite) to store energy amongst all LIB anode materials. Unfortunately, because of stability issues caused by the dramatic swelling silicon creates during LIB lithiation and delithiation (aka-pulverization) its very high capacity potential to store energy in a LIB has not been fully exploited and realized.
CLB Europe and its global CLB affiliates are pleased to introduce SiCAM™ (Silicon Carbon Anode Material), a disruptive, very high specific capacity, stable anode material that overcomes many of the silicon anode performance and manufacturing scalability challenges, making it the best new Si-C anode material option for use in Next Generation high energy density, low cost LIBs.
No other known Si-C anode material process uniformly embeds and chemically bonds (gas-phase) silicon particles throughout a proprietary carbon composite matrix. As a consequence SiCAM is able to provide superior performance and stability vs. other competing Si anode materials.
From 2013-2018 CLB co-founders, CEO Phillip Roberts and CTO/President Dr. Junbing Yang (SiCAM inventor and previous scientist at Argonne National Laboratory) successfully transitioned from a technology concept to pilot commercial scale production in Anaheim, CA. In 2017 CLB signed an agreement with a major US Polysilicon manufacturer to integrate CLB’s patent pending SiCAM reactor(s) for production at their facility in MI. CLB is now establishing global production operations in the EU, US and Asia.
Challenge(s) SiCAM addresses and how-
In a macro perspective cost effective, practical, and safe energy storage is one of the key technology challenges driving the future use and acceptance of competitively priced EVs and reliable renewable sustainable energy (wind and solar). The hope is when fully implemented the use of SiCAM in LIBs will help these non-polluting forms of transportation and energy production to slow the increase in global warming and to meet the sustainable economic and environmental growth challenges we face today.
