Blackstone Resources, a Swiss investment firm focused on battery technology, has announced that it expects to begin commercializing a new 3D printed sodium-ion battery design as early as 2025. The firm’s own German R&D subsidiary, Blackstone Technology, will work with a consortium of academic and industrial partners to demonstrate its 3D printed solid-state batteries in a real-world use case within the next three years. Specifically, the 3D printed solid-state batteries will be installed on a Eurabus electric bus, validating their performance on the road.
The potential for 3D printing to revolutionize battery technology is huge. If Blackstone’s sodium-ion battery design can be commercialized in buses by 2025, it would mean that this cutting-edge technology is available to the public sooner than expected. This could have a major impact on the way we power our transportation sector.
Everyone who uses buses! But seriously, if this technology is successfully commercialized, it could mean big things for the environment and for the economy. It could help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and pave the way for a more sustainable future. Plus, it could create new jobs in the battery manufacturing industry.
When do we get to see this?
According to Blackstone, the 3D printed sodium-ion battery design will be ready for commercialization by 2025. But in the meantime, keep an eye out for demonstrations of this technology in action – you won’t want to miss it.
