Electrochemical Materials

Information Paragraph

We have expertise in the fundamental science of electrochemical materials, synthesis of materials and composite microstructures, understanding new or combined properties and scale-up processesing. By doing so, we aim to deliver electrochemical materials that meet the targets set by the automotive industry, especially the following performance areas:

• Cost reduction – more than 50% reduction in cell and pack price

• Energy density – a doubling of energy density per cell

• Power density – a fourfold increase in power density of each power pack

• Safety – improvement in the thermal runaway at pack level to reduce pack complexity

• 1st life – a doubling in the lifetime of packs from 8 to 15 years

• Temperature – a widening of the temperature range over which cells can efficiently operate

• Predictability – an improvement in the predictability of performance of in situ and aging batteries

• Recyclability – an increase from the current 10-50% recyclability of battery materials to circa 95% levels.

Title paragraph

We're applying the latest electrochemical techniques and energy storage materials knowledge to characterise, validate and optimise new processes, systems and devices for breakthrough solutions in lithium-ion batteries, as well as research into chemistries that move beyond lithium-ion technology
