Natrion Makes The Forbes 2024 30 Under 30 Energy List

Natrion makes Forbes’ 2024 30 Under 30, Energy sector list.

Alex Kosyakov and Thomas Roufflac, former high school track teammates, founded Natrion with a goal to produce solid-state batteries. Electric vehicles today use lithium ion batteries which are highly flammable, charge slowly and lack sufficient energy, but nobody has figured out how to mass-produce an alternative. Natrion patented a new material called LISIC (Lithium Solid Ionic Composite) which can be deployed in existing gigafactories to convert them to high-volume SSB manufacturing. Currently, batteries employ a porous plastic membrane soaked in volatile and flammable liquids. LISIC mimics the porous membranes to be able to readily integrate into existing manufacturing lines, but does so without needing liquid. Natrion has received $3.2 million in funding from investors including Mark Cuban and is now scaling its technology with support from companies like LG Energy Solution.
