Graphene coating could help prevent lithium battery fires

Graphene coating could help prevent lithium battery fires

Lithium batteries are what allow electric vehicles to travel several hundred miles on one charge. Their capacity for energy storage is well known, but so is their tendency to occasionally catch on fire - an occurrence known to battery researchers as "thermal runaway."

Data-driven modeling and estimation of lithium-ion battery properties

Data-driven modeling and estimation of lithium-ion battery properties

Electric vehicles are powered by lithium-ion batteries, a rechargeable battery that's still not fully understood or perfected. And inasmuch as electric cars are expected to replace gas-powered cars, any research that improves the performance of a lithium-ion battery will be a boon for electric vehicles and the environment.

Lithium to lithium, manganese to manganese

Lithium to lithium, manganese to manganese

In the future, Volkswagen will offer e-mobility for all - and will assume overall responsibility: from the concepts for the vehicles, through production, sales and operations on to recycling. For this reason, a pilot plant for battery recycling is currently being set up at Salzgitter factory, south-west of Braunschweig, Germany.
