enerG2’s carbon aerogel technology is based on the foundation of ultra-pure polymer chemistry designed to synthesize high-performance, uniquely structured high-purity carbon materials on an industrial level scale. This platform allows for the flexibility to customize the properties of the carbon aerogel to address the direct needs of various energy storage applications.

enerG2 has developed novel advanced material solutions and translated them to a manufacturing scale, while maintaining the customizable control of the carbon aerogel technology. This enables enerG2 to create high volume, high-performance materials to meet customer requests while maintaining a high level of quality control.
Lead batteries are the incumbent energy storage solution for many technologies due to high discharge performance, low cost, and excellent recyclability. Unfortunately, limited charge acceptance prevents their use in many modern battery applications, which increasingly require partial-state-of-charge cycling. Introducing advanced carbons into the negative electrode enhances charge acceptance and improves cycle life, boosting lead battery performance for next-generation energy storage.

AeroCharge enables high dynamic and static charge acceptance with sustained charge power. Our ultra-pure carbon produces more efficient charging by reducing parasitic side reaction. It ensures longer cycle life by decreasing charge resistance on the negative electrode, even during demanding partial-state-of-charge use of lead batteries in today’s technology.
Ultracapacitors have emerged as a critical technology with the advent of high-power renewable energy storage systems and infrastructure. However, device cycle life and stability are limited by unwanted chemical reactions. Impurities drive these parasitic side reactions, which are magnified at higher operating voltages and prevent the advancement of ultracapacitor devices into future markets.

AeroVolt is a patented ultra-pure carbon aerogel which enables the next generation of ultracapacitors. The engineered structure and purity minimizes electrolyte breakdown at high operating voltages and extends cycle life far beyond traditional carbons.
Traditional gas storage requires very high pressures in cumbersome tanks, hindering growth in next-generation gas storage applications. Adsorbed gas technology based on carbon materials achieves high capacity storage at ambient temperature with significantly lower pressures. Storage at adsorbed gas pressures reduces infrastructure costs, enables innovative tank design, and provides a substantial safety advantage over compressed gas – opening new markets across an array of applications.

AeroPore carbon enables ambient temperature adsorbed gas technology to achieve an equivalent storage capacity to compressed gas at less than one-third of the pressure. Micropore networks within our carbon are optimized for adsorbed gas storage. The highly-pure, carbon structure allows for efficient gas adsorption and desorption at low pressures while maintaining storage capacity over years of service.

enerG2’s Research and Development team is dedicated to producing novel advanced materials for a wide range of energy storage applications. Our expertise in polymer chemistry, and industrial scale-up allows us to work seamlessly with our manufacturing department to quickly bring new technologies to market.
