APB polymer batteries to begin production in Japan no later than October
Former Nissan battery developer has pledged to commercialize safe polymer batteries no later than October this year. In the future, APB batteries (all polymer batteries) will be cheaper than lithium ion batteries and will penetrate both the automotive industry and consumer equipment, including smartphones.

The head of the company Hideaki Horie announced the preparation for the production of APB batteries without metals in its composition in the middle of last year. APB batteries are rolled in sheets up to ten meters, which makes production quite cheap. A stack of the required capacity is created by simply stacking layers on top of each other. Among other things, this structure makes polymer batteries more resistant to external influences, which is useful for installation in electric vehicles.
However, at the first stage of the release of new products, the calculation is made on energy storage systems. This is also prompted by the relatively low energy storage density of APB batteries compared to modern lithium batteries. Japan and other developed countries with a high share of green energy are in dire need of affordable and reliable electricity storage systems. APB batteries, the company is sure, are ideal for this, because due to stacking in layers they will take up three times less space (with the same energy storage density) than conventional lithium batteries.
“There are no competitors in the [stationary electricity] market,” Hori said. «Focusing on our massive storage systems will help the company increase production and lower costs.». APB plans to open a plant in Fukui Prefecture in Japan this year to produce batteries with a total capacity of 3 GWh per year. By about 2025, production will increase to 30 GWh at a cost of about 10 ($ 0.09) yen per watt-hour. In the future, costs should fall to around 5 yen, well below the current battery pack price range.
