Lithium-ion battery

Global approach is needed on battery regulation

(University of Birmingham) New European Union regulations on batteries could offer a huge boost to the global decarbonisation mission – but only if it leverages its political and economic weight to ensure a fairer global marketplace.

Leicester expert leads ground breaking invention on battery recycling

(University of Leicester) Researchers at the University of Leicester have developed a new method to recycle electric vehicle batteries using a ground-breaking new approach that many will have experienced in the dentist’s chair.

Long-lasting Solid-state Lithium Battery From Harvard May Solve a 40-year Problem

Long-lasting, quick-charging batteries are essential to the expansion of the electric vehicle market, but today’s lithium-ion batteries fall short of what’s needed — they’re too heavy, too expensive and take too long to charge. For decades, researchers have tried to harness the potential of solid-state, lithium-metal batteries, which hold substantially more energy in the same […]

Biden Ignores Own Record Of Allowing China To Buy Up U.S. EV Tech

President Joe Biden, while touting his $174 billion electric vehicle (EV) plan, ignored his record of allowing Chinese investors with ties to the Chinese Communist Party to buy up key parts of the American EV industry. During a speech at the…

Researchers develop new metal-free, recyclable polypeptide battery that degrades on demand

(Texas A&M University) The introduction of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries has revolutionized technology as a whole, leading to major advances in consumer goods across nearly all sectors. Battery-powered devices have become ubiquitous across the world. While the availability of technology is generally a good thing, the rapid growth has led directly to several key ethical and environmental issues surrounding the use of Li-ion batteries.

UNIST to develop new electrolyte additives for high-energy-density LIBs

(Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology(UNIST)) A recent study, affiliated with South Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has unveiled a novel electrolyte additive that could enable a long lifespan and fast chargeability of high-energy-density lithium-ion batteries (LIBs).

10 Devices That Contain Lithium-Ion Batteries & How To Dispose Of Them

In a lithium-ion battery, the anode and cathode hold the lithium ions. An electrolyte carries the lithium ions from one area to the other through the part called the separator. The movement between the anode and cathode creates the electrical charge at the positive and negative parts of the battery.As an electric current is used […]

Silicon anode structure generates new potential for lithium-ion batteries

(Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University) New research has identified a nanostructure that improves the anode in lithium-ion batteries. Instead of using graphite for the anode, the researchers turned to silicon: a material that stores more charge but is susceptible to fracturing. The team deposited silicon atoms on top of metallic nanoparticles to form an arched nanostructure, increasing the strength and structural integrity of the anode. Electrochemical tests showed the batteries had a higher charge capacity and longer lifespan.
