The California battery startup OneD Battery Sciences is the latest company to make a home in Moses Lake, WA. It joins two other companies (Group14 Technologies and Sila Nanotechnologies) who are also making batteries with higher performance and faster charging. The startup is expected to employ 20 people and produce 100 tons of silicon-graphite anode material annually. According to Jan-Marc Luchies, chief operating officer, using OneD’s silicon-graphite allows automakers to use 25% fewer battery cells while maintaining the same range- helping to bring down the cost of EV’s. The company is also partnering with General Motors, a collaboration focused on R&D of OneD’s SINANODE platform and increasing energy density.
