Log9 Materials achieves BIS Certification for its LTO batteries

Log9 Materials, specialising in advanced battery solutions, has announced that its LTO (Lithium Titanate Oxide) batteries have received certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). This certification signifies that Log9's LTO batteries comply with the stringent safety and performance standards set forth by the Indian regulatory body.

The announcement marks a significant milestone in India's journey towards self-reliance in energy storage. This certification not only demonstrates Log9's capability to develop high-capacity lithium-ion battery cells but also highlights their commitment to adhering to stringent safety and performance standards.

These LTO batteries boast enhanced safety due to their inherent thermal and chemical stability, minimising the risk of fire or explosion compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries. Additionally, these batteries are known for their ultra-fast charging capabilities and extended durability, offering a significantly higher number of charge and discharge cycles compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries, translating to a longer battery lifespan for electric vehicles. LTO batteries have applications in various sectors, including electric vehicles (EVs), two-wheeler and three-wheeler EVs, commercial vehicles, and energy storage systems.

Dr Akshay Singhal, Co-Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials, said, “This is a great national milestone in India's journey of self-reliance in energy storage as Log9 gets validation for its capabilities to develop and process large-capacity lithium-ion battery cells.”

Pankaj Sharma, Co-Founder & Director of Log9 Materials, said, “We are thrilled to announce a major milestone in our journey towards advancing cell technology based on LTO chemistry. Log9 stands as the sole company in India equipped to deliver commercial-grade lithium-ion cells, exemplified by our 50 MWh commercial cell line. Achieving BIS certification for our cells fills us with pride and motivates us to further pioneer in cell innovation, characterization, and the development of unique cell chemistries tailored for tropical climates. Our commitment to pushing boundaries remains unwavering.”

The BIS approval also validates the rapid charging capabilities of LTO batteries, paving the way for faster charging infrastructure and improved user convenience.
