In addition to improvements of the electrolyte and separator, from the aspect of battery system protection, our Smart Thermal Liquid (STL) technology has a built-in passive protection system to ensure a non-flammable battery.
This cutting edge technology can be applied in different kinds of electrochemical systems, which significantly improves the safety level of lithium-ion batteries.
Microvast LpTO (Gen I) technology is built upon lithium titanate (LTO) chemistry, which is known for its outstanding electrochemical and safety performance, unmatched abuse tolerance, excellent capacity retention at extreme temperatures, while being considered the safest chemistry in the lithium-ion family.
With years of intensive research, Microvast has successfully resolved the gassing issue of LTO by material modification. Microvast launched LpTO technology in 2009 and delivered into commercial operation since 2011. Field performance data shows that after 6 years of heavy-duty commercial operation in full electric transit buses, LpTO battery shows minimum capacity degradation.
In Apr 2017, Microvast launched it MpCO (Gen III) ultra-fast charging battery technology, which 41% higher energy density than LpCO, which lowers the cost of the battery system.
