New applications of MOLECULAR REBAR ® - Auxillary power for eVehicles, advanced automotive and deep cycle/forklift

Agenda for
5-9 September

Dr. Paul Everill
Chief Technology Officer, Black Diamond Structures
Millions of vehicles worldwide are powered by MOLECULAR REBAR®-enhanced batteries. Our material’s unique capabilities enhance structural integrity, control crystal conformations, improve electrical performance, and permit our customers to build better, more efficient batteries than their competitors. In this, our largest annual technical update, we will share three new customer testimonials which exemplify the benefits that MOLECULAR REBAR® can provoke in lead-acid battery designs. Firstly, we will review how our engineers deployed our materials to help a South African battery manufacturer develop a new battery with market-leading dynamic charge acceptance, improved crankability, but no change to existing water loss parameters. Secondly, we will continue the story of our custom-built, Addenda-manufactured expander, designed from the ground up to maximally showcase MOLECULAR REBAR® capabilities, by reviewing its performance in the strenuous new key life test (nKLT) / High Temperature Endurance test. Thirdly, we will discuss MOLECULAR REBAR® in traction / forklift applications where our materials’ ability to excel in deep discharge scenarios and recover charge more efficiently has resulted in new, more durable batteries being commercialized in Europe. We also plan to share new thoughts regarding MOLECULAR REBAR® mechanism of action which further differentiates itself from its competitors.


Dr. Paul Everill comes to Black Diamond Structures, LLC directly from Molecular Rebar Design, LLC, the originators of MOLECULAR REBAR® technology. There, he was central in formulating, manufacturing, and developing their first carbon nanotube-based additives for lead acid batteries. As R&D Director of Lead-Acid Battery Technology, Paul built the research team and facilities to support product launches and development cycles over a 7-year period. Dr. Everill also supports our 165+ manufacturer base by orchestrating the fulfilment of Technical Service and Development demands from our customers via our global sales teams. In addition, he routinely represents Black Diamond Structures at global summits, regulatory meetings, and customer visits.

Dr. Everill holds a PhD in Biochemistry from Tufts University in Boston, MA, a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, and a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Texas at Austin.
