The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019 was awarded jointly to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries”. The reason for the award was, “They created a rechargeable world”.
Among them, John B. Goodenough is the inventor of the anode materials of lithium cobaltate, lithium manganate and lithium iron phosphate, one of the founders of the lithium-ion batteries, known as the “Father of Lithium Battery” in the industry.

In order to commercialize the research results of John B. Goodenough, an American energy company named K2 truly creates the value of human use and social commerce. As the strategic partner of John B. Goodenough, K2 Energy is the leading battery, battery module and R&D technology enterprise in the industry. They jointly produced a series of leading edge products applied on new energy vehicles, aerospace, medical, military, energy storage and other industrial sectors, including the creation and production of the first lithium iron phosphate battery in the world, and the new type of solid-state battery which is now in active research and development.
