Seems to be an enhancement to Li tech, not a replacement:
"additives to the electrolyte in order to increase the performance of Li-ion battery cell chemistry.
It’s called ‘Novel battery systems based on two-additive electrolyte systems’.
“Two-additive electrolyte systems that enhance performance and lifetime of Li-ion batteries, while reducing costs from other systems that rely on more (5) additives. This disclosure also discloses effective positive electrodes and negative electrodes that work with the disclosed two-additive electrolyte systems to provide further systematic enhancements.”"
They get really technical near the end of the article... for those that enjoy way more detail
