⚡ Which metal was used as far back as 1799 when Alessandro Volta invented the voltaic pile, the original battery? Hint: It's still in use today in single-use alkaline batteries, and it's gaining adoption for safe, high-cycle, high-efficiency, high-energy-density grid scale batteries too. For this episode, Onas Bolton joins BioZen CEO Nate Kirchhofer to dive into how Octet Scientific is making these metal batteries better: modifying their aqueous electrolyte composition with Octet's organic (carbon-based) Octolyte™ chemical additives that improve cycle life, shelf stability, and charge transfer efficiency—among lots of other advantages—at just ~1% concentrations. Stick around to hear some trends from Octet's 30+ customers, the interplay between grant funding and private finance (they're gearing up for a Series A raise, by the way), and their transition from an R&D company to a manufacturing company.
