Log9 Materials achieves BIS certification for its LTO batteries


Log9 Materials, an advanced battery solutions provider, announced today that its LTO (lithium titanate oxide) batteries have received certification from the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). This certification signifies that Log9’s LTO batteries comply with the stringent safety and performance standards set forth by the Indian regulatory body.

Log9 stated its BIS-certified LTO batteries boast enhanced safety due to their inherent thermal and chemical stability, minimizing the risk of fire or explosion compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries. Additionally, these batteries are known for their ultra-fast charging capabilities and extended durability, offering significantly higher number of charge and discharge cycles than conventional lithium-ion batteries, translating to a longer battery lifespan for electric vehicles.

LTO batteries find applications in various sectors, including electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage systems.

Akshay Singhal, co-founder and CEO, Log9 Materials, said, ”[The BIS certification] is a great national milestone in India’s journey of self-reliance in energy storage as Log9 gets validation for its capabilities to develop and process large-capacity lithium-ion battery cells.”

Pankaj Sharma, co-founder & director of Log9 Materials, said, “Log9 stands as the sole company in India equipped to deliver commercial-grade lithium-ion cells, exemplified by our 50 MWh commercial cell line. Achieving BIS certification for our cells motivates us to further pioneer in cell innovation, characterization, and the development of unique cell chemistries tailored for tropical climates.”

Beyond battery development, Log9 Materials recycling program ensures responsible lithium-ion battery disposal, maximizing the utility of their 250 MWh annual LTO EV battery production. Recycled materials get a “second life” in renewable energy storage.
