We’re changing the way anodes exist.
Ever wonder why your mobile devices don’t stay charged for an entire day? We do. The fact is, until now, battery technology has just been … good enough. But you’re not satisfied with good enough. Neither are we. If we demand faster, lighter, more powerful phones and laptops, why not demand the same from batteries?

We’re fascinated by science, technology and their limitless potential. Our idea of a great day? Using science and technology to help you make everyday life easier and more productive. We are…
The Anode Problem? What Anode Problem?
At besstech, we don’t see a problem; we see a $500 Million opportunity. The world consumes 6.5 Billion (with a B) lithium ion batteries a year. But these batteries are not good enough. In fact, these batteries use basically the same technology that was invented 30 years ago. At besstech, we’re blending chemistry, nanoengineering and economics to prove that there can be a revolution in lithium ion batteries. To spur the revolution, we have exclusively licensed technologies from two of the best universities in the Northeast, and in collaboration with them we are leading a technological change that will redefine how lithium ion batteries are made.
Traditional anode manufacturing is a lengthy process that involves several steps (powder production , mixing (powder + binder + solvent), coating, drying, calendaring) that can take several weeks and requires costly equipment and has high overhead. At besstech, our process is comprised of one well-known, very efficient process: Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). We produce ready-to-use anodes in less than two hours using a highly scalable process. No need for costly dry rooms, solvent recovery systems, or even high overhead.
Our highly scalable CVD-based processes are used extensively in the photovoltaics, coatings, thin-film, and semiconductor industries. This is the future of battery manufacturing.
