Toshiba Ranks No. 1 in Japan, the USA and Europe in Patent Energy in Key Lithium-ion Battery Expertise

– Dominates high place in oxide-based adverse electrode-related applied sciences for lithium-ion batteries –

TOKYO, Oct. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — An impartial survey has as soon as once more confirmed Japan’s Toshiba Company (TOKYO: 6502) because the clear chief in Japan, the USA and Europe for patents overlaying oxide-based adverse electrode expertise for lithium-ion batteries. Carried out in September this yr by Tokyo-based Patent End result Co., Ltd. (Patent End result), the result’s a repeat of a 2016 survey by the identical firm and underlines Toshiba’s No. 1 place and strength-in-depth on this important space.

Toshiba started R&D in oxide-based adverse electrodes earlier than 2000, with a deal with Lithium Titanate Oxide (LTO) adverse electrodes. Typical lithium-ion batteries have carbon-based adverse electrodes, however Toshiba acknowledged that LTO, an oxide-based adverse electrode, supplied glorious traits in six essential areas: security, lengthy life, fast charging, excessive enter and output, low-temperature efficiency, and a large efficient state of cost. Toshiba first utilized the expertise within the SCiB™, the lithium-ion battery it dropped at market in 2008.

Over greater than 20 years, Toshiba has raised the competitiveness of its battery enterprise and constructed a world-class patent portfolio by refining the outcomes of its LTO R&D, deciding on developments aligned with its enterprise plans, and strategically submitting patent functions. It has additionally expanded and bolstered the enterprise through the use of the patents to construct alliances with co-creators.

In each the 2016 and 2022 Patent End result surveys, Toshiba scored excessive on amount and high quality and complete patent strengths, far outdistancing opponents awarded patents in Japan, the US and Europe. Toshiba attributes this No. 1 place to a analysis technique that has focused on creating superior technological capabilities and registering and utilizing top quality patents acquired over time.

The SCiB™ has received a superb popularity for its security, lengthy life, and fast cost and discharge traits, and has discovered a variety of utility in hybrid passenger vehicles and electrical buses, rolling inventory and ships, electrical energy administration and automatic guided automobiles utilized in trade. Its capacity to assist minimize emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide are anticipated to win new functions for the SCiB™ in a world that’s accelerating efforts to comprehend carbon neutrality.

Toshiba will proceed to advertise analysis and improvement of battery expertise that realizes secure, safe and environment friendly use of vitality, and to assist these efforts with a proactive patent technique.
