SiFAB

SiFAB is changing how we power our lives by enabling longer battery life and faster charges for lithium-ion batteries.

SiFAB™

Transformative tech for next-gen batteries

Silicon fiber anode battery technology (SiFAB™) is a powerful breakthrough that will change how we power our lives. Developed by Alkegen, a global leader in high-performance technologies at large scale, SiFAB features an innovative proprietary nanoporous fiber structure that accommodates the swelling of silicon in lithium-ion batteries and allows high silicon content anode formulations for greater performance and grid storage.

SiFAB is unlike any other battery technology on the market today. Its unique structure and capability to scale offer the versatility to span usage across many industries and applications, including electric vehicles (increased energy density), consumer electronics (space maximization), cordless power tools (smaller, lighter, stronger, longer lasting), and aerospace (weight and volume saving).

BCG Digital Ventures Role

After several years of R&D, Alkegen sought collaboration with BCG Digital Ventures, which validated SiFAB’s market opportunity, developed a robust investment case and commercialization plan, and then worked alongside the Alkegen team to launch the new venture.
