Blackstone: Battery technology, Solid state battery and Lithium- the biggest structural trend in the 21st Century.

February 12, 2020 GMT

BAAR, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 12, 2020--

Blackstone Resources AG (SWX: BLS) held one of its signature-conference events last Thursday at the Widder Hotel, Zürich.

The theme of the conference was on how batteries will reshape our global economy and play a significant role in our lives in the future. During the event, Blackstone’s experts spoke to its investors about some of the exciting projects the company is currently engaged in. These include its lithium exploration project in Chile and the launch of its battery technology programme in Erfurt, Germany.

Blackstone believes that mankind’s future will be determined by its ability to support a sustainable clean-energy world using battery technology. It considers the emergence of this theme to be one of the biggest structural trends of the twenty-first century. This vision has shaped the way the company operates today.

Below is a summary of some of the topics that were covered during the event.

Lithium exploration

Blackstone is currently exploring and developing several licence areas in the Antofogasta region that cover an aggregate more thatn 3000 hectares. This is an area that is well-known for its rich lithium resources. Blackstone has done substantial works and a 43-101 report of our licences. This project forms part of Blackstone’s broader battery-metal portfolio, which it has built up over the years.

3D-printed battery technology

The patented 3D-printed battery technology Blackstone has developed offers 25% more energy density than conventional lithium-ion batteries, due to its disruptive process technology. Almost any geometry in addition with thicker layers can be printed. Multi-layer batteries are also possible, which offer higher voltages on cell level. This single fact can significant reduce the cost in the battery module production.

Solid-state battery technology

The 3D-printed battery technology is the key technology to manufactured Solid-state batteries (SSBs) in large scale. By developing solid-state batteriy printing technology, Blackstone will be able to double the energy density of the batteries it produces at much less cost. Moreover, it will be able to supply itself with its own battery metals during this process.

Blackstone Resources holds a diversified portfolio of invested interests across the battery supply chain. This includes battery metal mining interests, plus significant investments in battery technology. Both areas are expected to evolve into multi-billion-dollar markets in the future, presenting significant potential upside for the company. Exposure to these two areas also makes Blackstone the world’s first truly vertically integrated battery technology company.
