About Us

Gtrans is developing a thermally responsive separator which will increase safety of Li-ion batteries. The technology is invented at Prof. Harold Kung’s lab in Chemistry department at Northwestern University. The new Separator can restrict the flow of ions at elevated temperatures to avoid thermal runaway conditions and thus, reduces explosion risk in Li-ion batteries. The key differentiator between our product and competitors’ products is that our product is recoverable and has the possibility to save the battery after experiencing high temperatures that could result in thermal runaway conditions
