BrightVolt Wins Best Eco-Friendly Battery Manufacturer Award

Recognition for providing cleaner, safer battery energy

LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- BrightVolt Inc., the global leader in the design, development and scale manufacturing of the safest ultra-thin film, flexible batteries, was awarded the 2016 Clean Energy Award for best eco-friendly battery manufacturer. Created by Global Energy News magazine, the 2016 Clean Energy Awards recognize the development and implementation of clean energy solutions.

No Volatile Liquids Means Eco-Friendly Batteries

Unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries that use lithium electrolytes which can be flammable and toxic to the environment, BrightVolt batteries contain no volatile liquids. This patented chemistry makes BrightVolt batteries environmentally safe and minimizes the potential for spontaneous combustion events. BrightVolt batteries can withstand fluctuations in temperature and therefore be heated, custom-designed for use in new form factors, and even printed, without causing damage.

"It's outstanding for BrightVolt to be recognized for delivering better batteries that are safer for the environment as well as safer for products that now contain potentially flammable materials," said Todd Peters, BrightVolt CEO. "Our highly proprietary technology – BrightVolt PME® (Polymer Matrix Electrolyte) — also enables cleaner battery chemistry, battery safety, and manufacturing process all critical to sustainable energy."

Meeting Global Demand for Safer Batteries

As IoT and wearable applications continue to expand, many designers and manufacturers, from Fortune 100 companies to startups, are working with BrightVolt to develop safer, smaller and more flexible batteries to power these devices. BrightVolt has already manufactured more than 10MM ultra-thin film batteries that are used in commercially viable products.

The 2016 Clean Energy Award also recognizes BrightVolt's rigorous environmental sustainability policies that include commitments to developing products and processes that are safe and environmentally sound, and help preserve resources and the environment. Adherence to sustainability and safety is an integral part of BrightVolt's ongoing goal to be recognized as a leader in clean energy development.
