Dr. Jiang Fan Chief Executive Officer American Lithium Energy Corporation and Chief Technology Officer Amionx, Inc.
Dr. Jiang Fan is founder and chief executive officer of American Lithium Energy (ALE) Incorporated and founder and Chief Technology Officer of Amionx. Dr. Fan has more than 20 years of experience in battery industry with a focus on lithium-ion batteries. Over the ten-year history of ALE, Fan has developed advanced, lithium-ion products for both military and commercial use. He developed a battery for use in missile launch testing that significantly outperformed competitors from four of the largest global battery manufacturers. Additionally, Dr. Fan has achieved several milestones in advanced battery design. He designed a battery for advanced military applications that doubled the flight time of a new weapon system, and he designed a bullet-safe, high-energy battery for military helmets using nano-silicon. Prior to his dual roles as president of ALE and CTO of Amionx, Dr. Fan held roles at both Polystor Corporation and more recently at Gold Peak Industries. While at Gold Peak Industries, Dr. Fan successfully developed a broad range of lithium-ion products (both round and prismatic), which met Underwriters Laboratories (UL), United Nations (UN), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Japanese standards for both military and commercial applications. He successfully developed a 4Ah 18650 cell with 280 Wh/kg, which is about 20 percent higher than 3.5Ah 18650 cell from the industry leader, as well as a military battery BBXX90 battery with 200 Wh/kg, which is about 30% higher than the military current standard BB2590 batteries. Additionally, he established the material and cell performance evaluation laboratory, and UL certified safety-testing laboratory for Gold Peak’s San Diego location. He led the effort in developing both the electrode and cell manufacturing. While at Polystor, Dr. Fan led the efforts in electrochemistry improvements including: cost reduction; better rate capability; longer calendar life; and safety. His work focused on the Partnership of Next Generation Vehicle (PNGV) contract from the United States Advanced Battery Consortium (USABC). Additionally, Dr. Fan qualified new vendors for raw materials used in the production of 18650 cells. He also evaluated various types of electrolytes to improve cell cycle life and low temperature performance. He studied the effects on product quality from variations in the cell and electrode manufacturing processes. He also managed product failure mode analysis. Dr. Fan is a published IEEE author and holds 15 patents in areas such as current limiter and interrupters, electroactive particles and electrodes, and battery and supercapacitor hybrid. Additionally, Dr. Fan raised the capital and built an advanced lithium-ion battery cell factory in Asia with the capability to produce 12 million 18650 cells per year. He holds a Master of Science degree in 1988 from Zhejiang University. He completed his doctorate in Chemistry at Arizona State University
