Lavle working on solid electrolyte battery ESS for marine market

Lavle, a Washington-based marine battery company, says it’s developing a large-scale solid electrolyte battery (SEB) energy storage system (ESS) for the marine market. The Lavle marine solution will utilize SEB cells supplied by its Japanese joint venture partner, 3DOM, and engineering expertise from its American joint venture partner, Ockerman Automation. The 3DOM SEB cells use… Read more »

LISA project aims to develop Li-S battery cells with solid-state non-flammable electrolytes

Lithium-sulfur is seen as one of the most promising chemistries for the next generation of batteries, and the UK battery firm OXIS Energy has been developing the technology for some time. Now OXIS has announced that it will be one of 13 European partners in the Lithium Sulfur for Safe Road Electrification (LISA) project, which… Read more »

ARPA-E awards $6.6 million to two projects for solid-state battery electrolytes

The DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) has awarded $125 million to 41 energy-related R&D projects under its 2015 OPEN funding program. Two of these have to do with ceramic electrolytes for solid-state EV batteries.

Researchers develop new method for making thin and oxide-based solid-state electrolytes

A team of researchers from MIT and Samsung have invented a new approach for manufacturing oxide-based and thin solid-state electrolytes that doesn’t require sintering. In an article published in Energy & Environmental Science, the researchers write: “We report a ceramic manufacturing method termed sequential decomposition synthesis (SDS), which results in ceramic films with thicknesses between… Read more »

Leclanché announces breakthrough in safety of its battery technology with fire-retardant electrolyte additive

Swiss battery provider Leclanché says it has achieved “a significant breakthrough” in the safety of its lithium-ion batteries, without compromising cell performance. By adding a special fire-retardant additive to its electrolyte formula composition, Leclanché says it has lowered the risk of a thermal event by close to 80%. The achievement has been validated by Intertek… Read more »

Belgian startup raises €10-million, plans to bring solid-state battery to market

SOLiTHOR, a spin-off company from the Belgian research organization Imec, recently raised €10 million in a seed investment round led by Imec.
