Electrovaya's Infinity Technology has demonstrated effectiveness in preventing cell to cell propagation in two high voltage fire propagation tests. This showcases the technology's ability to make lithium ion batteries safer and prevent thermal runaway in battery systems

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2024 / Electrovaya Inc. ("Electrovaya" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:ELVA)(TSX:ELVA), a leading lithium-ion battery technology and manufacturing company, today announced that it completed and passed fire propagation testing on two of its high voltage battery systems, each with over 50kWh in capacity. The testing was done in accordance with the UL2580 standard and one test was completed at an independent lab and the second completed in-house. This testing involved forcing a single cell in the battery system to thermal runaway through directly heating a cell. The passing result was the fire remained contained and did not spread within or outside of the battery system. A "real world" comparison would be if there was a fire within the battery system at a single cell level, but did not propagate and lead to a further fire. From the Company's understanding, in most cases, this type of scenario with competing battery suppliers would lead to large and well documented battery fires.

"These test results further exemplify the real-world benefit of Electrovaya's lithium ion ceramic technology on providing much higher levels of battery safety. For most battery systems a test like this would have resulted in the entire battery system catching fire, which would be catastrophic to a vehicle or building where it was installed " said Dr. Raj DasGupta, CEO at Electrovaya. "A battery fire is an extremely costly event, not just for manufacturers, but for the general public. Electrovaya's technology has been proven to be a game-changer. "

Electrovaya's strong competitive advantage with regards to battery safety lends itself well to establishing and growing sales in safety sensitive applications including but not limited to material handling, data center energy storage, airport based battery applications and mining applications. The Company's strategy remains focused on leveraging this competitive advantage in these verticals while still retaining industry leading profit margins.
