LiFeSiZE AB was formed in 2006 as a spin-off
from lithium-ion battery research at The Ångström Advanced Battery
Centre (ÅABC) of Uppsala University, Sweden. Lithium-ion battery
cathode research identifies the iron-based materials as
having an enormous development potential for electric-vehicle
(EV) and sustainable energy storage applications.
||Josh Thomas (Chairman) was Professor of Solid State Electrochemistry at Uppsala University
until 2009; he founded The Ångström Advanced Battery Centre in 2000, and LiFeSiZE AB in 2006. He has co-authored many 100s of scientific papers in the Solid State Electrochemistry area.
||Henrik Eriksson (CEO)
has earlier been chief battery technician at The Ångström Advanced Battery
Center of Uppsala University since 2003, where he has accumulated a wealth
of experience of Li-ion battery fabrication at the basic research level. At
LiFeSiZE AB he is nowo able to apply this experience to the extra challenges
encountered in battery-cell scale-up|
