Driving Domestic Battery Material to Power the Future of Electrification
Highly Sustainable Process – Transforming the Way Battery Material is Produced
Sustainable domestic battery material production at a fraction of the cost.
Infinite Cathode Battery Material Possibilities
6K Energy’s UniMelt Technology Offers Unlimited Possibilities
6K Energy’s UniMelt technology can produce almost any lithium-ion battery material including NMC, LFP, LLZO, LNMO, LMO, LTO, and silicon anode. Market demand has driven our material development to be focused on NMC and LFP to begin commercial availability.
NMC Battery Material Properties
NMC (nickel, manganese, cobalt)
NMC batteries’ long life cycles make them popular for portable devices such as laptops, cell phones, and grid storage. Electric vehicles also use NMC battery material due to their high energy density and ability to withstand high discharge rates, allowing EVs to travel longer distances on a single charge. The ratio of nickel, manganese, and cobalt varies depending on applications.
LFP Battery Material Properties
LFP (lithium iron phosphate)
LFP batteries outlast other types of batteries and are more resistant to overcharging and deep discharge cycles. They are commonly used for personal transportation, such as EVs, HEVs, golf carts, and scooters. UPS systems and backup power supplies often use LFP battery material because they offer reliable and long-lasting power.

Addressing environmental challenges of battery material production.
Leapfrog Technology at Significantly Lower Cost
Faster, Cleaner and at a Lower Cost
6K UniMelt® microwave plasma technology is transforming the way we produce battery material by collapsing the production process time by 95%, resulting in:
To meet the demands of electrification, battery material costs must be drastically reduced, requiring production to be done differently.
6K’s UniMelt Production Cost
With 6K’s UniMelt technology, we take a multiple-step process down to a single-step, closed-loop process, driving the overall cost of the material production down.
