Sodium-ion Batteries & Indi Energy’s Technology Updates 17

sodium-ion batteries

Welcome back to Indi Energy’s seventeenth edition of “Sodium-ion Batteries Technology Updates.”

We at Indi Energy are a DRDO 3.0 and National Startup Award winner, an energy storage startup from India developing and commercializing sodium ion batteries. We consciously chose to research and develop because, apart from being a good choice for the environment, the performance of our batteries also speaks for itself. Exploring the vast landscape of battery materials, sodium is a beacon of hope. It’s abundant and cost-effective, and with Indi Energy’s ‘Made in India’ Sodium ion batteries and customizable sodium-ion battery packs, we are ready to redefine energy storage solutions sustainably.

In this seventeenth edition of “Sodium Ion Batteries Technology Updates,” we will explore the different life stages of sodium-ion batteries and the exciting news about Indi Energy being felicitated with a certificate of appreciation by SIDBI. Let’s get started, shall we?

The 5 stages in the life of a Sodium-ion Battery! 

The life of a sodium-ion battery such as one of Indi Energy’s, the proud manufacturer of not just sodium-ion batteries but also customized sodium-ion battery packs, is a fascinating journey. It all starts with ‘resource extraction.’ In this first step, raw materials such as sodium, layered oxide cathodes, hard carbon anodes, aluminum, and electrolytes are extracted from various abundant sources. Then we move on to the second step—manufacturing, where the extracted materials are processed and assembled into sodium-ion battery cells. This process involves synthesizing cathode and adone materials, preparing electrolytes, assembling cells, and manufacturing other components like cell casing and battery management systems. With manufacturing done, it’s time to move on to use phases.

After all, this comes the stage of end-of-life handling because, just like everything else, sodium-ion batteries also reach the end of their extremely useful lives, and like every other battery, this stage needs to be handled appropriately. This consists of the collection, transportation, and dismantling of the batteries. Followed by the fifth stage in this journey, recycling and disposal. In the case of recycling, the dismantled battery components are processed to recover valuable materials like sodium, aluminum, and other metals. Recycling is an extremely critical step because it further reduces the environmental impact while reducing the demand for new raw materials.

Another milestone for Indi Energy

We are thrilled to share that Indi Energy has been announced as the winner of the SIDBI Young Environmental Champions Challenge in the category ‘Waste to Energy Solutions & Recycling Technologies.’ This is a remarkable achievement for us, once again underscoring Indi Energy’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and environmental stewardship.
