The passion of its founding partners for electronics has led to the creation of a company that has grown in just a few years to become not only an innovative supplier of high-tech lithium batteries, but also a promoter of the electrification process under way in the market, in a multitude of different applications.
We need to make batteries more sustainable: that’s one of the biggest challenges”, says chemist Michael Stanley Whittingham, director of the Institute of Materials Science at Binghamton University in the US and winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with John Goodenough and Akira Yoshino for inventing lithium ion batteries. Devices that, again according to Whittingham, “will last for a long time to come and will be talked about for the foreseeable future”.
But what is lithium? Lithium is a light chemical element that is mainly used in heat-conducting alloys, as a component in certain medicines and in batteries. As in the well over 10,000 units designed and produced since 2012 – the year it was founded – to date by Flash Battery, a company based in Sant’Ilario d’Enza (RE) that has now become one of the undisputed leaders in this specific sector, thanks also to the customised solutions it is able to offer the market at high technological value.
