Anteo Technologies was invited to speak at a battery workshop held in Osaka, Japan’s heartland of lithium ion battery production. At the workshop, Anteo’s Head of Battery Operations, Manuel Wieser, gave a presentation on the company’s work in the battery space. Anteo’s unique approach to creating higher silicon content anodes attracted much attention. The workshop was made possible by CSIRO and the Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) and was held on the 5th and 6th of December 2018. CSIRO’s and Austrade’s efforts brought together the emerging Australian battery industry and the highly developed Japanese battery industry with the aim to exchange information, ideas and contacts. Exchanges with the Japanese industry made clear that Australian technology and resources have an important role to play in the decarbonisation and electrification of tomorrow’s economy.
