Calix to invest another $4.5m into battery development

This additional capital will be used to accelerate the growth of our advanced battery R&D program, enhance the scope of the materials being tested, and commence commercial discussions with battery materials and battery assembly entities.

Electrode coating, coin cell assembly and electro-chemical testing equipment.

Expand pouch cell testing and battery pack development program, to avoid the need for industrial partner funding, and to strengthen our commercial leverage.

New, fully equipped and fit-for-purpose battery laboratory with skilled operators.

Expanded reactor capability to fully exploit processing advantages of the BATMn technology.
