Echion Technologies

Echion Technologies recently spun out of the University of Cambridge’s Engineering Department with the goal of commercialising a Li-ion battery technology, to address the market for electric buses.

The technology, which comes out of the Boies Group at the Department of Engineering and the De Volder Group at the Institute for Manufacturing, is based on innovation around the fundamental chemistry and nanostructure of a lithium ion battery’s active anode material. 

The name ‘Echion’ was inspired by the ancient Greek word for ‘spiny’ (ekhinos), which loosely describes the nano structure of the novel battery material.
