Consortium for Battery Innovation launched first workshop in China

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

A global battery consortium will pave the way for a “raft of new research” into developing next-generation lead battery technology at a workshop in China tomorrow.

The Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI), formerly the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium, will hold its first workshop of the year in Shanghai on 5 March— ahead of unveiling a “new technical roadmap designed to extend both the performance and lifetime of the core battery technology”.

The CBI said the programme would fund projects designed to increase the cycle life of advanced lead batteries and further improve their ability to operate in applications such as start-stop and micro-hybrid applications.

ALABC joins Argonne Lab for next-gen lead batteries study

Mon, 10/22/2018 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

Lead-acid battery technology is to undergo a “high-tech makeover” under a research agreement between members of the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) and the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory.

Fourteen ALABC members have signed up for the science programme, which Argonne said would focus the lab’s “resources and expertise on improving the performance of lead batteries, to assist the industry in meeting market demands for existing applications and for new applications”.

The nine full members of the programme include Crown Battery Manufacturing Company, Doe Run Resources Corporation, East Penn Manufacturing Company, EnerSys, Exide Technologies, Johnson Controls, NorthStar Battery Company, RSR Technologies and the Trojan Battery Company. The five associate members are Superior Graphite, Microporous, Cabot Corporation, Borregard Lignotech and Advanced Battery Concepts.
