Lithium-ion is currently the most widely used battery technology. But if you follow the news surrounding battery breakthroughs, that is about to change.
Researchers at Technical University Ilmenau want to find out how lithium-ion batteries can be charged faster and more efficiently, manufactured more cheaply and have a longer lifespan.
Carbon membrane should help prevent dendrite forming in lithium-metal batteries. If that works, it brings the e-car closer to being able to drive 1,000 kilometers without recharging.
Economic after-use of lithium car batteries would be possible, but has so far failed due to open safety issues. The Graz University of Technology in Austria is researching the parameters.
The Finnish energy group wants to create a recycling cluster for batteries used in electric cars in Harjavalta.
To ensure safe, high-performance batteries from environmentally friendly resources, lithium must be replaced by sodium. Swiss scientists have found a chemical solution for this.
A world without lithium is inconceivable in the 21st century. Mobile phones, electric cars, data storage. Lithium is essential for those batteries that power these […]
Australian and German researchers have applied for a patent for a new type of lithium-sulfur battery that is much lighter, cleaner and more powerful than […]
Lithium is currently used in the glass industry, lubricants, and also in the pharmaceutical industry. Due to its relatively high energy density, however, lithium is […]

Following in Tesla's footsteps are countless other companies working on everything around battery production. Guben and Bitterfeld have a premiere with Europe's first lithium factories.
It is only thanks to geniuses and technical visionaries like Copernicus, Einstein, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk that mankind advances, says Bernd Maier-Leppla.
TU Eindhoven student team CORE takes the first step to recycle batteries. The new CORE Titan rig processes waste containing batteries underwater.
Every day we put a start-up in the spotlight. Today it's the turn of Viezo, a start-up that stores vibrational energy in small devices.
In the Pioneers in Mobility month, we feature stories from companies that work on the mobility of the future. This time: Power Battery.
Every other week we ask sustainability expert Auke Hoekstra what catches his eye when it comes to making the earth more sustainable. This week: how a failed machine regains its usefulness.
