WORLDWIDE LICENSE FROM LiFePO

+C LICENSING AG

As a world leader in the production of phosphates,

Prayon benefits from a century of expertise in phos-

phate chemistry. Headquartered in Engis (Belgium),

Prayon has two manufacturing sites in Belgium, one

in France and one in the United States.

The Group offers:

Large-scale production capacity

A high-speed, low-cost continuous process

A preferred supplier status to the food

processing industry, ensuring high quality,

traceability, purity and performance.

beLife’s lithium iron phosphate was initially devel-

oped by the French Atomic Energy and Alternative

Energies Commission (

CEA

). In 2008, a technology

transfer agreement was signed with Prayon allowing

the Belgian company to fully exploit CEA’s patented

technology.

In May 2012, Prayon obtained a worldwide license

for its product from

LiFePO

+C Licensing AG

.

LiFePO

represents patent owners Hydro-Québec (Canada),

The LFP patent rights associated with the license

include worldwide protection for LFP technology,

ment with LiFePO

of sublicenses to suitable LFP/LMP producers capa-

ble to address the market demand with high quality

products. Today beLife benefits from this licence.
