$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

$102M Funding in 6K To Accelerate Battery Material Production

6K's UniMelt system replaces a three-day, multi-step, high waste chemical co-precipitation (hydro-met) process with one that is ultra-clean and ultra-fast (as low as 2 seconds), powered by a 6000K microwave plasma. Compared to state-of-the-art CAM plants today, 6K uses half the footprint, substantially lower CapEx, and half the conversion costs or less.

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

Battery Swapping for Two- and Three-Wheelers in India

The automotive sector in India is dominated by two-wheelers (scooters, motorbikes) and three-wheelers (autos, rickshaws) that play a significant role in last mile mobility in the country. The battery swapping model is a solution to the inadequate charging infrastructure in the country. With a large addressable market and many OEMs offering swap-capable vehicles, many start-ups are now emerging, which aim to offer swapping services.

Volkswagen and SEAT Mobilise 10 Billion Euros to Electrify Spain

Volkswagen and SEAT Mobilise 10 Billion Euros to Electrify Spain

The Volkswagen Group and SEAT SA will mobilise 10 billion euros, together with their partners in the Future: Fast Forward project, in the event of a positive resolution of the PERTE VEC. The Gigafactory will have an annual production capacity of 40 GWh, supplying the total volume of cells to Martorell and Pamplona. It will employ more than 3,000 people by 2030 and occupy an area of 200 hectares. Construction of the Gigafactory will begin in the first quarter of 2023, and production will start in 2026.

The Rise of the Carbon Nanotube Battery

The Rise of the Carbon Nanotube Battery

It is impossible to avoid headlines about the "graphene battery"; the concept of this Nobel Prize winning nanomaterial revolutionizing the energy storage market is naturally very enticing, but it is graphene's older sibling carbon nanotubes that have progressed beyond the hype and disillusionment phases of their commercial journey by finding a value-add high volume energy storage adoption.

Milestone in Battery-Powered, Zero-Emission Transport for Ships

Milestone in Battery-Powered, Zero-Emission Transport for Ships

Current Direct is demonstrating a swappable battery solution for powering inland waterway vessels, with one or more lithium-ion batteries installed in a swappable container, or e-house. Project estimates indicate that the use of swappable batteries connected to an energy-as-a-service platform could reduce European water transport emissions by 482 000 metric tonnes of CO2 equivalents each year.
