Oxis' ceo Huw Hampson-Jones said: "The agreement we have reached with Steatite allows us to combine our strengths in a way that will intensify the further development of lithium sulphur cells. [Steatite's] expertise in oil and gas, transportation and security will allow us to deploy our lithium sulphur cell technology into sectors where safety, lightweight systems and reliable energy performance are key requirements for their customers."

Paul Edwards, battery manager at Steatite, added: "Our association with the world's leading lithium cell manufacturers and knowledge of the battery industry will continue to improve with our association with Oxis. Lithium Sulphur is a game changing technology, offering significant technical and commercial advantages in applications using rechargeable lithium technology. We are delighted to partner Oxis at the forefront of this development."
