Providing enhanced performance, reduced carbon emissions, and supply chain relief.

Small amounts of TENIX™. Big battery improvements.

TENIX™ is the only new material that improves performance across the board in cathodes—the primary driver of battery cost, performance, and greenhouse gas emissions. It is used as an additive, replacing small percentages of the traditional cathode material. Even in small amounts, TENIX™ adds both electronic AND ionic conductivity to the cathode to give the battery what it needs, when it needs it. This is true even in stressful conditions like cold temperatures, fast charging, and high rates of use. Think you know the balance of energy and power you can get out of your battery? Think again, with TENIX™.

Carbon Neutral Production Process

When Ten-Nine was founded in 2014, nobody wanted to hear us talk about sustainable battery materials. But ten years in, the market is hungry for better answers. Our founding commitment to practical, scalable and green chemistry solutions enabled us to scale quickly to tonnage production with ZERO (count them, ZERO) Scope One emissions. Our plant runs exclusively on wind-produced electricity instead of fossil fuels. The materials used to make TENIX™ are abundant and non-toxic and their embodied carbon cost is offset with high-quality carbon credits to make the production of TENIX™ carbon neutral from cradle to gate. To learn more about low-carbon TENIX™, read our Sustainability Report here.

Every gram of TENIX™ replaces a gram of a more toxic, more rare, and higher carbon footprint battery material.

Whatever cathode chemistry you use, TENIX™ is your answer to improved performance. Because TENIX™ stabilizes the cell in challenging conditions, its useful life can be longer and provide ALL materials in the battery a higher use efficiency. And whatever percentage you replace is that much traditional cathode material that you don’t have to source and import: TENIX™ is completely domestically produced and contains no nickel or cobalt. Many of our evaluation partners feel squeezed out of the cathode supply chain by the automotive giants. TENIX™ can help.

TENIX™ simply drops-in to the other powders in the cathode manufacturing process. To arrange an evaluation of TENIX™ in YOUR batteries, please contact our Head of Business Development, John Ilkka.
