Lithium begins its 12 volt push

A stream of lithium battery solutions from some of the big names in lithium-ion manufacturing and automotive systems suppliers were presented at AABC. And they seem to provide all the answers to the OEM’s emission targets for 2021 and 2030.

Chris Ferhenbacher, from A123 Systems, showed real data that appeared to prove conclusively that lithium-ion with their latest phosphate technology is superior to an equivalent AGM battery, even at -30C.

Sacred Sun Power opens state-of-the-art lead-acid plant

Thu, 08/22/2013 - 15:32 -- Ruth Williams

Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources Co. Ltd has opened a state-of-the-art facility that, when running at full capacity, will be one of the largest lead-acid battery factories in the world. The production site in Qufu City, Shandong, China, currently has an annual production capacity of four million kVAh, when the plant is fully operational this could reach six million kVAh each year.

The one billion RMB (US$163 million) plant is part of the new environmentally-conscious era of Chinese lead-acid battery manufacturing because it adheres to the Lead-Acid Battery Industry Access Conditions that have recently been announced by the Chinese Government.

Some Chinese battery producers have been criticised for lead contamination coming from plants. To prevent such pollution, Sacred Sun has introduced ultramodern production processes and equipment including a fully automatic lead-milling process, a closed-loop system to supply, recover and recycle lead in production, and fully enclosed battery formation. These methods are highly effective for reducing lead fumes and dust. The new plant also uses advanced technology and equipment for producing tubular plating.

According to the Lead-Acid Battery Industry Access Conditions, as set out by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China, new, reorganised and expanded lead-acid battery manufacturers' capacities can be no less than 500,000 kVAh, in the hope of improving the industry access threshold.

Shandong Sacred Sun Power Sources, located in Qufu City, Shandong Province, China, was established in 1991. The company produces lead-acid batteries that are primarily used in standby power and electric vehicle applications around the world.
