Firms form JV to manufacture lithium-ion battery cathode material in Canada

Thu, 06/04/2020 - 11:10 -- Paul Crompton

Prairie Lithium and LiEP Energy will initiate a two-stage pilot project to produce the key lithium-ion battery cathode material lithium hydroxide from oilfield brines in Canada.

Through a joint venture called the Prairie-LiEP Critical Mineral (PLCM) and pending regulatory permits, stage one of the project is expected to begin next month in Saskatchewan.

MIT engineers have developed electrodes to avoid the stresses that cause component fracturing in solid-state batteries.

Solid-state batteries need a mechanism that allows for expansion and contraction during charge/discharge cycles, without changing the electrode's outer dimensions.

A new electrode concept from the laboratory of Ju Li, the Battelle Energy Alliance Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering and Professor of Materials Science and Engineering could meet that need.

Johnson Matthey inks LFP cathode deal with Lithium Werks

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 00:00 -- Hugh Finzel

UK-based chemicals company Johnson Matthey (JM) has signed a long-term agreement to supply battery cathode material to Dutch lithium-ion producer, Lithium Werks (LW).

Under the agreement— which will run for five years, commencing 1 April 2019— JM will supply lithium iron phosphate (LFP) material manufactured at its Changzhou, China facility.

In September 2018, JM sold its automotive battery business to US-based Cummins, allowing the company to focus on “developing commercial battery materials for the full range of transport applications”.

Will research lead to higher voltage Li-ion batteries?

Wed, 07/01/2015 - 11:00 -- Paul Crompton
Will research lead to higher voltage Li-ion batteries?

Researches using x-ray imaging techniques have discovered why a cathode material in lithium-ion batteries is capable of reaching high voltages.

Using images combined with data analysis algorithms the teams explored the mechanical properties of LNMO spinel (composed of lithium, nickel, manganese and oxygen atoms) at the nanoscale level.

Oxis li-ion sulphur batteries

Britain’s Oxis Energy, in conjunction with compatriot MSP Technologies, is to market lithium sulphur battery packs for marine applications in spring 2015.

Launched as part of MSP Technologies’ Ghost-Power range of diesel/battery hybrid power systems for motor boats, Oxis Energy’s lithium sulphur packs will be scalable from 20 kWh to 50 kWh upwards. The battery will be designed for Lloyd's Register approval, which Oxis Energy claims will give safety assurance to customers while helping to lower insurance premiums.
