New HIU lithium-metal battery boasts 560 Wh/kg specific energy

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Technology Institute and the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU) have developed a new lithium-metal battery that offers a specific energy of 560 Wh/kg with good stability.  The researchers used a low-cobalt, nickel-rich layered cathode (NCM88), which offers high energy density. With the commonly used organic electrolyte LP30, however, the stability is unacceptable…. Read more »

New paper shows atomic-scale closeups of how a lithium-metal electrode ages

Lithium-metal batteries, which use anodes made of lithium metal rather than graphite, could offer great improvements in energy density and weight. The DOE’s Battery 500 Consortium has set a goal of developing lithium-metal EV batteries with triple the energy density of today’s Li-ion cells. Now scientists at Stanford University and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory… Read more »

Aqua Metals and 6K Energy collaborate to establish sustainable US battery supply chain

Aqua Metals has developed a process for recycling lithium-ion batteries that it says is much cleaner, more efficient and more cost-effective than current methods (see our recent in-depth interview with company execs). Now Aqua has signed a strategic supply agreement with battery materials supplier 6K Energy to establish a more sustainable supply chain for battery… Read more »

Aqua Metals is building a more sustainable battery recycling ecosystem

Q&A with Aqua Metals execs Steve Cotton and David Regan Regardless of the claims made in Facebook memes, Li-ion batteries are eminently recyclable, and current recycling methods cause far less environmental damage than the well-documented depredations of the petroleum industry. However, as sustainability is central to the mission of the EV industry, we need to… Read more »

Ferroglobe and Coreshell to produce battery-grade metallurgical silicon for EVs

Ferroglobe, a producer of silicon metal and ferroalloys, and Coreshell, a US-based battery technology company, have signed a memorandum of understanding under which they plan to produce battery-ready metallurgical silicon for the development of low-cost, high-range EV batteries. Automakers are keen to use more silicon in anodes, because it can potentially store up to 10… Read more »
