Faraday Institution launches industry-wide standard for physics-based battery modeling

The Faraday Institution recently introduced Battery Parameter eXchange (BPX), an open standard for physics-based lithium-ion battery models that defines three factors: battery parameters; the equations employing those parameters; and the reporting of experimental measurements used to validate the reported parameters. The complexity of physics-based models and the lack of a common definition, says Faraday, has… Read more »

Faraday Battery Challenge to fund 17 new tech projects

The Faraday Battery Challenge, a project initiated by the UK government to promote advanced battery technologies, has announced a new £10-million round of funding, which will be shared across 17 projects being undertaken by businesses and research institutions across the UK. The funded projects cover a wide range of topics, including a new sodium nickel… Read more »

Faraday Institution develops ultrasonic recycling method

Faraday Institution researchers working on the recycling of lithium-ion batteries at the Universities of Leicester and Birmingham have developed a new method to recover materials from end-of-life EV batteries. The new process uses ultrasonic waves to separate valuable material from the electrodes. The researchers say it delivers a higher purity of recovered materials compared to… Read more »
