Notes to editors

Gelion (AIM: GELN) is a publicly listed company on the London Stock Exchange AIM market. It was founded as a spin-out from the University of Sydney in 2015 by Professor Thomas Maschmeyer, one of the world's leading chemists who was awarded the Australian Prime Minister's Prize for Innovation 2020.

Gelion is a global renewable-energy storage innovator. By designing leading-edge battery technology for stationary and mobile energy, the Company supports the transition to a sustainable economy while delivering value for customers and investors.

·       The Gelion Endure battery uses low-cost, abundant raw materials and is based on a chemistry that is highly resistant to fire.

·       With applications in agriculture, mining, water management and irrigation the battery is highly adaptable for off-grid use.

The batteries are also scalable, using lead-acid battery manufacturing technology, and the Company expects to develop megawatt-hour capacity for large-scale infrastructure, including for solar and wind farms.

In addition to investing in the growth of its zinc-bromide technology, the Company will use funding to develop its mobile energy division to enhance existing lithium-ion and lithium-sulfur battery technologies used in electric vehicles and the emerging market in electric aviation.

For the mobile market, Gelion's technology pipeline includes:

·       Highly tuneable, low-cost silicon nanoparticle additives for next-generation advanced lithium-ion batteries, which are safer and have higher energy density. 

·       A low-cost additive, which increases the lifetime of lithium-sulfur batteries by more than four times, delivering up to three times higher energy by weight than conventional lithium-ion batteries.

Using additive technology developed by its R&D team, which cooperates closely with scientists at the School of Chemistry and the University of Sydney Nano Institute, Gelion will develop and license additives for advanced lithium-silicon and lithium-sulfur technologies for ultra-high-density batteries to extend the cycle-life and safety of mobile energy storage.

Gelion also recently announced a partnership with Battery Energy Power Solutions in Sydney to manufacture and distribute its zinc-bromide batteries for the Australian market.

Gelion qualified for the LSE Green Economy Mark which recognises London-listed companies and funds that derive more than 50% of their revenues from products and services that are contributing the environmental objectives such as climate change mitigation and adaptation, waste and pollution reduction, and the circular economy.
