We’re solving every piece of the battery puzzle

Seeo’s safe and energy-dense solid-state cell can power everything from cars to homes to aircraft.

Key Milestones


  1. 2007

    Seeo is founded with the goal of creating a new class of high-energy rechargeable lithium-ion batteries based on a nanostructured polymer electrolyte initially developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

    SEEO deep battery cell development experience

  2. 2008

    Seeo develops DryLyte, a lithium-stable solid-state electrolyte/separator.

    Seeo - safety of solid-state battery cells

  3. 2011

    Seeo moves to Hayward and establishes a pilot line to develop large-format cells and processes.

    Seeo - what makes our team great

  4. 2012

    Seeo develops a cell design and processes at pilot scale to build high-quality (Li/LFP) large-format cells.

    Seeo demonstrates DryLyte stability (>2000 cycles), safety and reproducibility with large-format cells.


  5. 2013

    Seeo scales up DryLyte chemical processes to make ton quantities with high quality and cost efficiency.

    Seeo - cost-effective manufacturing of solid-state battery cell

  6. 2015

    Seeo builds up multi-kWh battery modules, fully tested by USABC.


  7. 2016

    Seeo focuses on high-energy cells and development of a NCx cathode system (polymer, salt, additive, CAM) with stability up to 80°C.

    Seeo develops new purification and rolling methods for lithium foil, as well as chemical treatment to reduce interface resistance.

    Seeo - polymer advantages for solid-state battery cells

  8. 2017

    Seeo takes a leap forward with its next-generation polymer electrolyte, which enables cells with NCM cathodes.


  9. 2018

    Seeo builds 250Wh/kg (15 Ah) cells.

    Seeo develops a next-generation solid-state electrolyte/separator that can be operated with NCM cathode active material.


  10. 2019

    Target: Development of a solid-state, high-energy (>20 Ah) battery cell with 350Wh/kg energy density.


  11. 2020

    Target: Development of a solid-state, high-energy (>30 Ah) battery cell with 450Wh/kg energy density.
