Wood-based Battery could Revolutionise Energy Market

24.09.2022

Nowadays a trend can be witnessed in almost all countries around the globe which focuses on the development of renewable energy sources. One condition that has to be met in order to efficiently harness the energy produced by renewables is that the storage media or batteries have to be more flexible and enduring. There are a...

New Method for Lithium Extraction from Brine

18.08.2022

Lithium is a mineral which occurs naturally and constitutes about 0.0007 percent of the Earth's crust. Lithium is contained in minerals and salts of natural brines which can be found underground or in seawater. Lithium can also form a byproduct of hydraulic fracturing. There it is mostly contained in fracturing fluids. Such...

Improved Lithium Battery Performance through New Additive

23.07.2022

As we become ever more dependent on lighter, thinner, and smaller electrical devices, the production and use of lithium-ion batteries has turned into one of the most important branches of industry, as they are needed for e.g. mobile phones and laptops, but also for larger applications such as electric vehicles. To ensure good...

Key metals for clean energy

20.07.2022

The availability of a number of metals and minerals is becoming increasingly important for the development of renewable energy as they are used as components in various devices, as bases or alloying additives, as catalysts, etc. Among them, lithium, cobalt, palladium, rare earth metals, and gallium should be mentioned first....

Events calendar: July 2022

29.06.2022

July as the hottest summer month is less favourable when it comes to energy industry events compared to June or the spring months. Nevertheless there will be several interesting and exciting exhibitions. The agenda of the conference and exhibition Battery Experts Forum (July 12 - 14, 2022, Messe Frankfurt) is dedicated to one...

Water in Battery Electrolyte for Easier Battery Production

30.05.2022

Batteries are a means to transform chemical energy directly to electrical energy. A battery consists of a number of voltaic cells. Each cell is made up of two half-cells connected in series by a conductive electrolyte containing metal cations. One half-cell contains the electrolyte and the negative electrode, the electrode to...

X-Ray Technology help improve batteries

19.05.2022

In search of longer-lasting batteries for electric vehicles, scientists have turned their attention to pure lithium metal as replacement for the currently-used graphite-based anodes. Pure lithium could contribute to the reduction of battery weight and also extend the driving range of a vehicle. The only problem is that the...

Sodium-Ion Battery for better performance and a more reliable grid

10.04.2022

In search of an easily rechargeable energy storage medium, many types of batteries have been developed in the past decades. The most common among them undoubtedly is the well-known and widely-used lithium-ion battery. However, in view of the uneven geographic distribution, negative environmental impact and high cost of many of...

Solid-state Batteries for Improved Performance

04.04.2022

Solid-state batteries are considered an important power source for a wide variety of applications. They use solid electrodes and solid electrolytes instead of the liquid or polymer gel electrolytes usually found in commercial batteries. Materials proposed as solid electrolytes for this type of battery comprise ceramics (e.g.,...

New Electrolyte for Solid State Lithium-Ion Batteries

05.03.2022

Designing the perfect battery can be a challenging task, if you want to not only create a device which can store a lot of energy but is also safe. Liquid electrolytes, for example, work reliably over many cycles; however, chances are high that the battery might catch fire at some point. Therefore, scientists have turned their...
