The first lead battery research project to be announced under the EU Green Deal The first battery innovation project in Europe using hi-tech neutron diffraction techniques has been launched in Spain under the Consortium for Battery Innovation’s (CBI) new technical program. European consortium member Exide Technologies has partnered with the Institute of Materials Science of Aragon (ICMA) to explore fundamental processes occurring inside […]
This new type of battery can be cut, bent, soaked, shot, and lit on fire—and it still powers up just fine. Lithium-ion batteries have shaped the modern world. These power pouches are at the heart of most rechargeable electronics, from cell phones and laptops to vapes and electric cars. But while they’re great at holding a charge […]
A new lithium-sulphur battery with an ultra-high capacity could lead to drastically cheaper electric cars and grid energy storage. Mahdokht Shaibani at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and her colleagues have developed a battery with a capacity five times higher than that of lithium-ion batteries. The battery maintains an efficiency of 99 per cent for more than […]
IBM has developed a new type of battery that’s free of cobalt, nickel and other heavy metals, avoiding the environmental and humanitarian issues related to lithium-ion technology. The battery is made from three materials that can be extracted from seawater, a much less invasive sourcing method than mining. IBM Research, the innovation arm of tech company IBM, says […]
The European Commission has approved under EU State aid rules an Important Project of Common European interest (“IPCEI”) jointly notified by Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Sweden to support research and innovation in the common European priority area of batteries. The seven Member States will provide in the coming years up to approximately […]
Our TEESMAT partner Northvolt is to commercialise new lithium-ion recovery methods to support 2030 recycling targets. €5.8 million investment into Revolt programme InnoEnergy, with the support of the EIT and the European Union, has announced its €5.8 million investment into Northvolt’s “Revolt” programme. The programme, which will implement the latest discoveries in efficient materials recovery methods, will see the construction […]
TEESMAT aims at building up a strong EU community, to create a market for the delivery of advanced materials characterisation techniques. We will act as a portal for information, news and services based on TEESMAT battery materials characterisation techniques.Yes, i am interested in joining the community!
