Oxis manufactures and produces all aspects and components in the making of the Li-S cell and does not use any toxic or rare earth material – a significant factor in the production of large battery systems for buses and trucks, it says. This is one of the reasons why researchers around the world are looking closely at the technology (see below): UN REPORT DRIVES COBALT-FREE AND SILICON BATTERY TECH . Oxis has a considerable lead in the technology, with over 43 patent families, 198 patents granted and 92 pending.
Oxis and CODEMGE are already working with several Brazilian blue chip companies regarding utilising its Li-S cells for the electrification of regional aircraft, buses and trucks and are collaborating with Brazilian aircraft manufacturers to build electric aircraft in the country. CODEMGE is also supporting OXIS Energy in its work with numerous US, European and Japanese aircraft producers.
