Green Car Congress
JULY 7, 2011
Liquid Metal Battery Corporation (LMBC), a Cambridge, Massachusetts company founded in 2010 to develop new forms of electric storage batteries that work in large, grid-scale applications, has secured the rights to key patent technology from MIT. Earlier this year, the company announced it had received financing from France’s Total—which earlier had funded research on the technology at MIT ( earlier post )—and from a personal investment by Bill Gates.
