ProLogium, MAHLE partner for solid-state battery solutions
Taiwanese solid-state battery manufacturer, ProLogium Technology Co. (ProLogium) on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding with MAHLE GmbH (MAHLE) for the development of the first thermal management system tailored for ProLogium's next-gen solid state batteries.
The collaboration will help in the rollout of commercially viable solid-state battery solutions that offer improved energy density, safety, and life span. The partnership also marks German automotive manufacturer MAHLE's first foray into the solid-state battery industry.
"The shared goal that unifies ProLogium and MAHLE is to speed up clean transportation with innovations," said Vincent Yang, CEO and founder of ProLogium Technology. "We are also excited about potential collaborations in manufacturing and supply chain. The partnership between two pioneering companies in the next-generation battery and engineering fields signifies a leap forward in shaping a revolutionary battery value chain, which is crucial for advancing the industrialization of solid-state batteries."
As per the MoU, both the companies will work on cell testing focused on thermal properties for the development of an innovative thermal management for solid-state batteries. After conducting a series of evaluations on ProLogium's solid-state batteries with 100% silicon oxide anode, the partners will enter discussion regarding building prototypes for "ProLogium- MAHLE" solid-state cell modules and battery pack series.
"The cooperation with ProLogium is an absolute win-win situation. With the combined expertise of the two groups, we will shape future battery technologies with superior properties", said Arnd Franz, Chairman of the MAHLE Management Board and CEO.
