Scientists use algorithm to identify potential solid electrolyte materials for lithium-ion batteries

Mon, 11/02/2020 - 12:49 -- Paul Crompton

Theoretical scientists at Stanford University have identified a new class of materials that could lead to the development of more efficient solid-state lithium-ion batteries.

The materials—lithium, boron and sulfur— were identified after the team used a computer algorithm to screen more than 12,000 lithium-containing compounds in a materials database.

LFP tests indicate lithium-ion cells can be made from waste material and recycled batteries

Tue, 08/18/2020 - 09:48 -- Paul Crompton

Battery materials firm Lithium Australia has completed initial tests on its lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) battery cells made from waste material, including low-grade spodumene and spent lithium-ion batteries.

The Australian firm has said testing revealed the 2032 cells, with a lithium metal negative electrode, achieved capacities of up to 161mAh/g at a 0.1C discharge rate1.

Is Eco-Bat’s market teasing lead-acid battery the industry’s greenest yet?

The lead-acid battery industry likes to push the PR line that it is one of the most recycled products on the planet at around 96%— but the battery’s reusable material currently sits at around 65%.

That was until UK headquartered Eco-Bat developed a 12V flooded battery made from 92% recycled materials, including the lead and acid electrolyte.
