Sylvatex (SVX) is transitioning the world’s energy systems through foundational manufacturing improvements impacting our zero-emission electric future. SVX is an advanced manufacturing technology company future-proofing the production of the largest cost and carbon footprint driver in EV batteries, the cathode. We have developed and are commercializing a proprietary one-pot dry synthesis process using lower-cost and less-processed material feedstocks. By unlocking greater cost-efficiency in battery production, SVX is enabling EV automakers and the battery supply chain to meet the rising demand for lithium-ion batteries while accelerating the widespread adoption of electrified mobility.

SVX is looking to partner with mission aligned investors and and industry collaborators to validate our technology and accelerate our path to commercialization.

Notable Achievements

  • Signed LOI with one of the largest EV manufacturers to de-risk production and reduce costs.
  • Closed Series A in Q3 2022 with $8.4M in funding.
  • A focus on non-dilutive funding and partnerships has de-risked capital investments. Awarded $10M+ in grant funding to date.
