How pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes enable vehicle electrification (Webinar)

Pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes are a reliable solution for a range of EV battery pack applications. These include bonding, flame retardance and dielectric insulation, and protection of sensitive materials. However, EV battery applications represent just a fraction of the many ways these tapes can support the electrification of modern vehicles. In this free webinar at our… Read more »

6K and ONE enter joint development agreement for battery material

Battery materials producer 6K has signed a joint development agreement with Michigan-based energy storage company Our Next Energy (ONE) to develop and produce a battery material that ONE will use in its dual-chemistry Gemini battery and LFP Aries battery pack. The companies will develop two chemistries that include iron phosphate and manganese. “Early collaboration will… Read more »

Electrify America highlights customer satisfaction efforts

Public charging networks have been coming in for their share of criticism lately. Recent studies from UC Berkeley, J.D. Power and Plug In America (among others) have quantified what EV drivers already know: the uptime performance of public chargers is abysmal. As EV sales have grown, accounts of malfunctioning chargers have spread from bitch sessions… Read more »

Chinese companies to increase production of OCSiAl’s graphene nanotube dispersion

Graphene nanotube company OCSiAl has announced that two Chinese manufacturers of its graphene nanotube dispersion plan to raise production capacities for the dispersions. The graphene nanotube dispersion is designed for lithium-ion cells. Chinese chemical manufacturers Shenyang East Chemical (East Chem) and Shanghai Haiyi Scientific Trading (Haiyi) started producing OCSiAl’s graphene nanotubes in 2019. According to… Read more »

ONE’s hybrid battery pack combines the best aspects of two chemistries to deliver 600 miles of EV range

Q&A with ONE CTO Dr. Steven Kaye. There is a wide range of characteristics that describe the performance of any given battery chemistry: energy density, specific energy, specific power, discharge efficiency, self-discharge rate, cycle life, calendar life, and—not the least important—cost.  Some types of Li-ion chemistries are really good in a few characteristics but fall… Read more »

Consortium looks at recycling cathodes, electrolytes and graphite in closed loop

An industrial and scientific research consortium funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action plans to research and develop processes for recycling cathode metals, electrolytes and graphite multiple times. The HVBatCycle research consortium is planned to operate for 3 years. “In order to have to use fewer materials from primary sources such… Read more »
