Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Industrialization of bipolar batteries with Lithium-ion technology

Better batteries for a greater range of electric vehicles - this is the goal of the "EMBATT-goes-FAB" project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. For that reason, the four project partners thyssenkrupp System Engineering GmbH, IAV GmbH, Daimler AG and the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS are developing bipolar batteries and processes for their fabrication.

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.
