Leclanché makes a significant breakthrough in its safety

Lithium-ion battery technology – without compromising cell efficiency

* The risk of fire is reduced by almost 80 percent without

Impairment of cell efficiency Independent nail penetration tests

confirm the significantly reduced risk of thermal phenomena


* Non-flammable electrolyte additive offers improved

Cell security option for

trains, trucks and buses

YVERDON-LES-BAINS, Switzerland and ANDERSON, Indiana, June 28, 2022-

Leclanché (SIX: LECN) has made a significant breakthrough in safety

of your lithium-ion batteries without sacrificing cell performance


By adding a special fireproof additive to

electrolyte formula composition, Leclanché has risks

thermal event reduced by nearly 80 percent. This performance is from

renowned external research laboratory Intertek Germany for several dozen years

Industry standard nail penetration testing using Leclanché 60 Ah

approved. Despite the test cells being punctured with the one from him

the resulting internal short circuit was much lower

Fire risk on the same cells without flame retardant additives.

Non-flammable lithium ion cells are of great importance for

Users in the rail, truck and bus markets. when she

Increase investments in hybrid and fully electric fleets

At the same time, they are concerned about the risk of fire on board the vehicles.

The recall of lithium-ion batteries is also an expensive problem

not to mention the business interruptions that this causes.

Leclanché is one of the world’s leading companies since

energy storage solutions.

“While the entire battery industry continues

R&D funds invested in the development of semiconductor batteries,

Today there is a critical need for security

To improve the high energy density lithium ion cell technology. this

most of the efforts so far affect

cell performance or viability. Leclanché managed to create them

high-performance lithium-ion cell with high energy density

High-security program without sacrificing performance

or adversely affect longevity. This is the key point

technological improvement of the current state of cell technology,

does not require breakthrough new technology in a few years

may be far from being commercially available, “said Pierre Blanc,

Technology Director at Leclanché.

Non-flammable electrolytes: water-based result

Leclanché production process

Leclanché battery cells are made in accordance with the proprietary

Manufacturing process in Willstätt, Germany. For the production

Leclanché uses electrodes instead of organic ones

Solvents such as NMP use a water-based process, resulting in significant

less environmental pollution and lower CO2 emissions, and

has proven itself in commercial production over the past ten years.

– Leclanché electrodes made of water

The production processes are manufactured, they show high stability

compared to the flame retardant additives contained in the new electrolyte

so that the efficiency of the cells is preserved.

Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché, said: “Our breakthrough should be manufacturers,

who have been waiting for the next generation of semiconductor batteries until now

encourage advanced fleet vehicle concepts today

move forward – safe lithium-ion batteries are here and Leclanché has it


The company’s new non-flammable cells will be available from the very first

Be available for production in Q4 2023. For more information
