Solid-state battery breakthrough first stage in doubling energy density of lithium-ion cells

Fri, 11/29/2019 - 09:33 -- Paul Crompton

Researchers at Australia's Deakin University have reported a way of using common industrial polymers to create solid electrolytes for solid-state lithium-ion batteries.

The scientists’ new solid polymer electrolyte system, based on a new lithium transport mechanism, was weakly bonded to the lithium-ion to replace the liquid solvents typically used as electrolytes in battery cells.

Rolls-Royce joins UK ‘polymer energy storage’ research

Rolls-Royce is teaming up with UK-based material research company Superdielectrics to develop advanced energy storage systems using polymers.

Rolls-Royce said the collaboration agreement would see the firm combine its material science and technical expertise with Superdielectrics’ “novel hydrophilic polymers— that have been shown to have potentially outstanding energy storage properties”.
