In November startup EnWires moved from INAC (of which it is a spinoff) to engineering physics and materials lab LMGP. EnWires continues to conduct its basic research with INAC, but will now be able to use the process it has developed at a larger scale at LMGP. The startup’s contract allows it to use LMGP’s facilities to make and test innovative composites for lithium-ion batteries.
This year EnWires hopes to produce in the tens of grams of its materials per day while continuing to work on battery performance enhancements (cyclability, charge speed). In addition, EnWires has signed an R&D contract with the CEA and plans to sign another with LMGP on materials production and characterization.
