Novel catalyst for high-energy aluminum-air flow batteries

Novel catalyst for high-energy aluminum-air flow batteries

A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has introduced a novel electric vehicle battery technology that is more energy-efficient than gasoline-powered engines. The new technology enables drivers to simply have their battery packs replaced instead of charging them. It also provides lightweight, high-energy density power sources with little risk of catching fire or explosion.

Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

Unlocking the value in second-life electric vehicle batteries

With global electric vehicle sales hitting 4 million this summer, increasing attention has been paid to the end-of-life issues of EV batteries. Recycling the batteries to recover the raw materials seems to be the default solution. However, after their first life as powertrain for electric cars, the batteries could still hold 70-80% of their initial capacity which can be further utilised in second-life applications such as stationary energy storage before being recycled.
