-- Chicago, IL – AllCell Technologies LLC, a leading manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries for transportation and renewable energy applications, recently hired Dr. Nazar Al-Khayat as Vice President Engineering. In his new role, Dr. Al-Khayat will be instrumental in guiding the company through a period of rapid growth and technology development. Over the past year AllCell’s compact, lightweight, and long-lasting batteries have been gaining significant traction in the electric bicycle and electric scooter markets, while the renewable energy storage market has recently begun to heat up. AllCell’
s proprietary application of phase change materials (PCM) for thermal management of lithium-ion batteries is an ideal fit for the quickly emerging market for off-grid solar energy storage, particularly in hot environments. Dr. Al-Khayat’s deep experience in product development and engineering management will be invaluable during this exciting growth phase.
Dr. Al-Khayat comes to AllCell with over 20 years of experience in the industrial, power generation, and high-performance automotive sectors. He previously worked as Director of Advanced Powertrain at Cummins Inc. and more recently as chief engineer for Williams Grand Prix Engineering. During his career, Dr. Al-Khayat has published over 35 technical papers and holds 10 patents covering powertrain architectures and controls, novel electrical machines topologies, power electronics and controls and renewable applications. Dr. Al-Khayat holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Nottingham Trent University (UK) and an M.Sc. in Electronics Engineering from University of Manchester (UK).
“We are extremely pleased to have Naz join our team,” said AllCell CEO Said Al-Hallaj. “His professional and academic background is a perfect fit for our company, while his creativity, work ethic, and leadership will be vital as we continue to scale up our production volumes and develop exciting new energy storage products.”
About AllCell Technologies
AllCell Technologies (www.allcelltech.com)
designs and manufactures lithium-ion battery packs for transportation and renewable energy applications. The company’s patented thermal management technology allows production of compact, lightweight, and long-lasting batteries. AllCell’
s thermal management technology is based on the use of phase change materials (PCM) to surround each lithium-ion cell, absorbing and conducting heat away to dramatically extend the life of the cells and prevent fire or damage to the battery. AllCell’
s products avoid the need for expensive, complicated, and inefficient active thermal management systems, replacing pumps, motors, and hoses with an elegant passive system that requires no energy to operate and has no moving parts.
