Swiss firm Blackstone Resources’ patented 3D printing technology prints lithium-ion solid-state batteries and brings about lower costs, greater production flexibility and increased energy density. In addition, the number of materials that do not store energy (i.e. copper and aluminum) could be reduced by up to 10% with 3D printing. To achieve the highest efficiency and greatest leverage from this 3D printing technology, the company plans to produce 3D printed solid-state battery cells for mass production.
