Weakness is Strength for this Low-Temperature Battery

Weakness is Strength for this Low-Temperature Battery

Nanoengineers have discovered new fundamental insights for developing lithium metal batteries that perform well at ultra-low temperatures; mainly, that the weaker the electrolyte holds on to lithium ions, the better. By using such a weakly binding electrolyte, the researchers developed a lithium metal battery that can be repeatedly recharged at temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius—a first in the field.

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Uses Second Life Batteries

Electric Vehicle Charging Station Uses Second Life Batteries

Irizar e-mobility and Ibil signed a collaboration agreement to give a second life to electric bus batteries. Consequently, the batteries that Irizar produces and installs in its buses, and their power electronics, will be reused as energy storage elements in the charging facilities that Ibil is developing and deploying.

Volkswagen Group Components Begins Battery Recycling Pilot

Volkswagen Group Components Begins Battery Recycling Pilot

Volkswagen Group Components opened the Group's first plant for recycling electric car batteries in Salzgitter. The aim is the industrialized recovery of valuable raw materials such as lithium, nickel, manganese and cobalt in a closed loop together with aluminum, copper and plastics, achieving a recycling rate of more than 90% over the long term.

Massive Deposit of Battery-Grade Nickel on Deep-Sea Floor

Massive Deposit of Battery-Grade Nickel on Deep-Sea Floor

DeepGreen Metals, which is exploring for deep-ocean polymetallic nodules as a lower impact and more cost-effective alternative to terrestrial mining, announced an upward revision to the nodule resource reported within the NORI-D exploration contract area held by its subsidiary, Nauru Ocean Resources Inc. The nodule resource is now estimated as 4 megatons measured, 341Mt indicated and 11Mt inferred mineral resources.
