The company’s novel high-throughput synthesis process produces electrochemical-grade materials in minutes rather than days. This dramatic reduction in processing time enables a very low capital cost for the production equipment, minimizes labor costs, and improves safety.
Boulder Ionics’ patent-pending intellectual property covers novel reactor designs, methods of synthesis, synthetic routes and compositions of matter. Our synthesis platform technology scales from kilograms to hundreds of metric tons.
Boulder Ionics’ ionic-liquid-based electrolytes enable a new generation of energy storage devices with superior performance, improved safety and lower costs.
- Orders-of magnitude higher throughput. Syntheses that take days in conventional reactors can be conducted in minutes.
- Superior purity. Continuous operation, rather than batch processes typical of conventional production, yields tighter process control, for a superior purity product.
- Improved safety. Ionic liquid synthesis often involves highly exothermic reactions, which creates the risk of explosions. Our technology manages the reactor temperature and minimizes volume, greatly enhancing safety.
- Lower capital costs. BI’s high-throughput reactors are much less expensive than conventional reactors used for batch production. As a result, BI’s reactors can be quickly commissioned to meet growing demand for ionic liquids for very little capital expense.
