In June of 2016, BASF Venture Capital America Inc. announced it has acquired EnerG2, a manufacturer of advanced carbon materials for next-generation energy storage devices.
EnerG2 has engineered its advanced carbon materials to dramatically improve the charge acceptance and device life of lead acid batteries in partial-state-of charge duty cycles.
EnerG2 has tuned the pore size distribution of ultrapure carbons for optimized use in ultracapacitor electrodes to allow full charge and discharge in seconds with device life cycles of a million or more cycles.Learn More ›
EnerG2 has leveraged its polymer technologies to develop new materials for high-volume storage of compressed natural gas (ANG) and low pressure compressed natural gas (CNG). If you’re a tank developer seeking unique solutions to more safely fill high volumes at low pressure then don’t hesitate to call us for more information.Learn More ›
In 2016, BASF fully acquired EnerG2 Technologies’ Lead Acid Battery and Ultracapacitor Electrode Carbon Materials. Prior to this acquisition, EnerG2 had been developing advanced Silicon Carbon for Lithium Ion batteries. This team and effort has been transferred to Group14 Technologies.Group 14 (sister company)
EnerG2’s Carbon Technology Platform (CTP) – based upon a polymer chemistry foundation – represents an ability to engineer and synthesize high-performance, uniquely tailored high-purity carbons, at large scale and low cost. The CTP has demonstrated the unique ability to customize the properties of carbons to address the widely varying needs of different energy storage solutions.
EnerG2 has deployed advanced polymer chemistry manufacturing to produce advanced materials for a wide variety of energy storage applications. The performance of our engineered materials in energy storage devices has potential to dramatically change the way the world generates, uses and conserves energy. Our carbon products are available for purchase and use in energy storage devices today.
Current manufacturing capacities allow EnerG2 to serve all targeted energy storage applications; capacity can be rapidly expanded as needed within the existing factory footprint. The inherent scale advantages of our manufacturing processes enable EnerG2 to produce best-in-class ultrapure carbons, uniquely tailored, at costs that are competitive with traditional electrochemical carbons.
