Will designating China as an “entity of concern” spur the development of US supply chains?

The Buy American provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law have proven controversial in some quarters, but they are integral and necessary components of both programs. EVs require raw materials, many of which are disproportionately extracted and processed in countries that we don’t want to rely on. Thus, any comprehensive program to… Read more »

Researchers shape hard carbon to form high-capacity electrodes for sodium-ion batteries

Researchers from Tokyo University of Science (TUS) are developing high-capacity electrode materials for sodium-ion batteries (NIBs) and potassium-ion batteries (KIBs) to compete with lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). In the study published in Advanced Energy Materials, the researchers reported a new synthesis strategy for nanostructured hard carbon (HC) electrodes. HC lacks a crystalline structure—unlike graphene or diamond—and… Read more »
