Green Cubes Technology develops and manufactures a complete portfolio of modern electrification power solutions, including the market-leading lithium Ion (“Li-ion”) battery. Green Cubes clean, connected, and cost-efficient power solutions allow industrial customers to transition away from fossil fuels and legacy power sources such as lead-acid and internal combustion engines (ICE).
Since the inception of Green Cubes Technology, our focus and direction has never wavered. The Green refers to the eco-friendly and energy-efficient nature of our rechargeable battery products. This is never more important as our products are replacing toxic and inefficient Lead Acid batteries or Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) in high-use and cyclic applications. The Cubes refers to the reusable building blocks that we use in the design of our products. By using multi-purpose technology platforms, we can quickly and efficiently deliver performance- and cost-optimized solutions to our customers. The Technology refers to the latest technology that we qualify and utilize to build our products, which includes cell chemistries, microprocessors, displays and packaging materials.
Green Cubes sells to a broad array of OEM and industrial customers across 3 platforms (Mobile, Motive and Stationary) and across multiple applications.
When it comes to electrification, years of accumulated knowledge matter. Green Cubes Technology has accrued decades of experience in power solutions across diverse applications. Green Cubes was there when the market progressed from lead-acid to NiMH to lithium-ion.
Green Cubes was one of the first battery pack manufacturers to utilize Benchmark fuel gauges, the first smart-chip microprocessors designed for Battery Management System (BMS) electronics and later acquired by Texas Instruments. Green Cubes pioneered the use of emerging Lithium Iron Phosphate cells in a medical application.
After 30 years of developing hundreds of battery systems for multiple applications, Green Cubes understands the advantages and, more importantly, the limitations of electrification. Our projects have helped customers achieve their operational, technical and commercial goals.
The battery is a medium that stores energy in its potential form. There are many battery chemistries, all with advantages and disadvantages. Regardless of the underlying energy source, our vision is to design platforms to help accelerate the adoption of cleaner energy mediums
Global Social Responsibility
Green Cubes takes its responsibility for clean energy solutions very seriously. That is why we are participating in CircuBAT a consortium formed to research and support the sustainability of electromobility through the development of a business model for the production, application and recycling of lithium-ion batteries.
End of Life Strategy
- Batteries form first life can be used for second life operation in energy storage systems.
- Will help to significantly reduce the CO2 emission
- Overall investment costs are reduced by 30%
The charter of the consortium is to explore the potential of environmental sustainability of the entire battery life cycle with the goal to advance the technical and economic potential of a circular economy for batteries.
Initiatives include giving batteries from electric vehicles a second life, guaranteeing the safe operation of a second life battery system, reducing battery waste by reusing end-of-life batteries, ensuring that the precious materials from end-of-life batteries are not wasted, finding new ways to manufacture lithium-ion batteries, and ultimately making electromobility more sustainable.
R3 Battery Recycling Program
Green Cubes is focused upon efficiency and improving power systems used globally. Green Cubes’ focus provides a great benefit to the environment and subsequently Green Cubes has developed the following policy and direction for the recovery, reuse and recycling of our industrial power lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery systems. The policy helps to provide direction to our consumers of our battery systems and inform them of the activities performed in the R3 policy. The energy savings due to the high charge efficiency of the LFP chemistry and R3 truly make Green Cubes Technology’s LFP battery systems a “Green Battery.”
The return of the batteries is a simple process. The current process is Green Cubes provides a Certificate of Return (COR) to our customers. The COR states that Green Cubes will accept the battery return, depending on the agreement for shipping of the battery system back to Green Cubes. The COR also states conditions which may void the return.
The LFP batteries have a long cycle life. Depending on the customer usage, the recovered LFP batteries may have significant energy remaining. While the energy is too low for high usage industrial applications, it may be well suited for applications such as Solar Energy Storage or Recreational LEVs. Green Cubes has designed the battery systems to allow for easy removal of the lithium cells which are repurposed for other applications. Estimates are that more than 30% of the original energy can be utilized in the lower demand systems. In addition, the battery systems have key components such as the steel battery tray, ballast and steel compression plates which can be refinished and reused with new battery systems. The reuse of these major components provides a high recyclability content for the batteries.
The R3 plan sets a path to ensure the major battery components are reused, but the LFP cells will eventually reach an end of life (EOL). Green Cubes ensures that agreements are in place with our industrial cell manufacturers so that Green Cubes may return the EOL cell back to the manufacturer. The LFP chemistry is comprised completely of non-toxic materials (main items being Lithium salts, Iron and Phosphate) which leads to ease of handling. The goal of returning the cells to the manufacturer is to allow them to reuse the materials in their new cell manufacturing process.
