BASF to recycle production waste from cell manufacturing at Cellforce Group to close the loop
BASF has been selected by Cellforce Group, a joint venture between Porsche and Customcells, as the exclusive cell development partner for its next generation lithium-ion battery. As part of the collaboration, BASF will provide high-energy HEDTM NCM cathode active materials to contribute to ...
First-of-their-kind snapshots reveal byproduct crippling powerful, experimental cells
For decades, scientists have tried to make reliable lithium-metal batteries. These high-performance storage cells hold 50% more energy than their prolific, lithium-ion cousins, but higher failure rates and safety problems like fires and explosions have crippled commercialization efforts. ...
Researchers are developing a family of cathode materials that have all of the advantages of conventional lithium batteries but without the supply constraints
In our future electrified world, the demand for battery storage is projected to be enormous, reaching to upwards of 2 to 10 terawatt-hours (TWh) of annual battery production by 2030, from less than 0.5 TWh today. However, concerns are growing as to whether key raw materials will be adequate to ...
"This technique could be an important piece of the puzzle in the development of next-generation batteries"
Researchers have developed a simple lab-based technique that allows them to look inside lithium-ion batteries and follow lithium ions moving in real time as the batteries charge and discharge, something which has not been possible until now. Using the low-cost technique, the researchers ...
The Körber European Science Prize 2021 awarded to chemist Clare Grey
The Körber European Science Prize 2021, endowed with one million euros, goes to Clare Grey. The British chemist pioneered the optimisation of batteries using NMR spectroscopy. Grey pioneered the optimisation of batteries with the help of NMR spectroscopy. This method allows non-invasive insights ...
Porsche and CUSTOMCELLS found joint venture: The chemistry of the new high-performance cells relies on silicon as the anode material
The latest step in the electric offensive: Porsche is investing a high double-digit million amount in the new company Cellforce Group GmbH. Porsche and joint venture partner CUSTOMCELLS® announced the launch of production of high-performance battery cells at the Weissach Development Centre. “The ...
A new era for energy recycling, which refers to the energy recovery process of utilizing indoor lights that would usually be wasted by converting them into electricity, will soon unfold. Thanks to the newly-developed electrode material, the charging efficiency was found to be significantly ...
Chemists prevent dendrite formation in lithium metal batteries
The energy density of traditional lithium-ion batteries is approaching a saturation point that cannot meet the demands of the future – for example in electric vehicles. Lithium metal batteries can provide double the energy per unit weight when compared to lithium-ion batteries. The biggest ...
Convergence of semiconductor physics and electrochemistry leads to effective inhibition of dendrite formation using semiconducting passivation layers
Despite rapid development of electric vehicles (EVs), the safety of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries remains a concern as they are as a fire and explosion risk. Among the various approaches to tackle this issue, Korean researchers have used semiconductor technology to improve the safety of ...
Measuring the process in unprecedented detail gives them clues to how to minimize the problem and protect battery performance
When lithium ions flow in and out of a battery electrode during charging and discharging, a tiny bit of oxygen seeps out and the battery's voltage - a measure of how much energy it delivers - fades an equally tiny bit. The losses mount over time, and can eventually sap the battery's energy ...
