Alkegen, a leading specialty materials platform creating transformational battery materials, today announced they will be exhibiting at the upcoming AABC Europe Conference in Mainz, and The Battery Show Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. Alkegen’s Battery Group focuses on delivering battery innovation with advanced materials for Lithium Ion Battery (LiB) thermal barriers and electrical protection, battery separator technology, and revolutionary silicon fiber anode battery material (SiFAB®) that enables greater energy density, faster charges, and longer battery life in electric vehicles, portable electronics and energy storage systems. Alkegen, formerly Unifrax and Lydall, is a one-of-a-kind specialty materials platform dedicated to human health and sustainability.

The technical capabilities of the Alkegen Battery Group support customer partnerships with a global engineering team, deep technical expertise, and customer collaboration. These unique capabilities allow for a globally coordinated team of engineers and designers with a dedicated presence in each region, solutions designed for easy installation and handling, and scalable, customized solutions that meet budgets and optimize performance.

Alkegen’s range of technical capabilities includes Design, Testing, Prototyping and Serial Production. The global design team employs 3D modelling software to collaborate with customers and optimize form, fit and function. Thermal, mechanical, environmental and compression testing are used for part validation and new product development. The engineering team prototypes both in-pack and in-cell solutions once designed to validate product functionality. Finally, Alkegen’s global footprint of IATF certified sites and engineering teams support scale up through regional production locations in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region.

Alkegen’s transformational battery portfolio includes both in-cell and in-pack solutions. In-cell solutions such as separators and additives to improve cell performance and safety include SiFAB, Alkegen’s fibrous silicon anode battery material with ultra-high capacity that enables greater energy density and is highly scalable. SiFAB technology was launched last year and will scale to production this summer. Also from Alkegen, Inovion™ is a high surface area fibrous separator paper that promotes rapid ion exchange. Alkegen also offers several in-pack solutions including high-temperature lightweight products designed to reduce thermal runaway propagation along with providing mechanical, electrical and thermal protections within the battery pack. Innovative product solutions also include FyreBlocker™ LiB, AlkeGel™ Aerogel Materials and FyreWrap® LiB performance materials. These in-cell and in-pack innovations have valuable functions in numerous industries and applications from portable electronics, e-mobility, to robotics.

Founders launch Plural: a €250m fund for fellow ‘Unemployables’ building Europe’s next generation of tech companies28.6.2022 09:00:00 CEST | Press release

Plural, a new investment platform started by the founders and backers of Europe’s most significant tech companies, has unveiled today a €250m early stage venture fund (Plural Platform SCSp RAIF, “Plural”) to back the next generation of founders with global ambitions. Set up by Ian Hogarth, Khaled Heloui, Sten Tamkivi and Taavet Hinrikus - with other recognised founders who will announce themselves soon - Plural is a scalable investment platform whose investors are exclusively former founders and operators with decades of company building experience. Plural was founded because the Plural founders saw that across Europe the vast majority of investors lacked experience of building tech businesses. In Europe just 8% of investors are former operators, in contrast to more than half of tech investors in the US. Plural’s founders believe that the scar tissue from building tech companies is invaluable in helping the next generation of founders to build companies with global potential. Plural’s
