At ACE, we are on a mission to support the EV revolution by developing and licensing superior battery technologies that meet the performance, reliability and safety demands of today’s drivers. Advanced Cell Engineering (ACE) was founded to develop, market and license technology for safe, high energy density lithium-ion anodes, cathodes and cells. Our location in the U.S. will enable us to take a leading role in making North America a center of excellence in battery research and development.


Our Advanced LFP and LM:FP chemistry are fully developed. We are currently undergoing independent testing and continuous optimizations to ensure the highest levels of quality and performance. We expect our R&D center and pilot line facility to be fully operational by the end of 2022.


Technological Expertise

Our team has the technological know-how and experience to develop the solutions that are needed to help the automotive industry meet their ambitious electrification goals. ACE’s patented LFP and LM:FP technologies offer meaningful advantages in energy density versus today’s LFP cells without trading off safety. Our technological advantages will help drive adoption of EVs, providing drivers with peace of mind and more travel flexibility than ever before.

Strategic Location

We are proud to be located in the United States where we can play a leadership role in bringing battery expertise and development to North America. Our headquarters, research & development laboratory and pilot line facility are all located in Stuart, Florida. Today, most of the world’s cell manufacturing is located in Asia. Our Florida location will bring battery manufacturing expertise closer to U.S. EV manufacturing facilities, helping to create a more secure and green North American EV supply chain.

Technology Transfer

Our anodes, cathodes and cells can be produced on standard manufacturing equipment, which means our customers’ existing factories can easily be converted to produce ACE technology. With a licensing agreement in place, ACE will provide complete turn-key technology transfer. ACE will assess our customer’s equipment, provide a specific action plan for converting to our chemistry, provide training for manufacturing staff, and ensure all manufacturing lines go into operation quickly and run smoothly. Leveraging our cell manufacturing expertise in many ways is just as important as the chemistry itself.

Dedication to Recycling

We develop our battery technologies as 100% recyclable to reduce environmental waste and allow our customers to recover the highly valuable raw materials when the battery cells they produce using ACE technology reach the end of their useful lives.


ACE's leadership team is uniquely experienced and qualified to develop and market advanced battery chemistries and technologies, and to transfer technology to our licensees for production of lithium-ion anodes, cathodes and battery cells using ACE technology.

 As we continue to grow, we are adding distinctly qualified manufacturing, engineering, finance, marketing and sales expertise to our team. This deep bench of talent will enable us to get to market faster with the most advanced technologies available.
