A developer and creator of advanced lithium-ion batteries and techniques, and Ionic Materials, an advanced materials company, right this moment introduced their milestone developments in strong state battery growth.
Working together utilizing their joint growth settlement, A123 and Ionic Materials have developed a revolutionary and trade first approach to an All-Solid-State Battery (ASSB) that can speed up the commercialization of the expertise. By combining Ionic Materials’ superior ionically conductive polymer with A123’s subsequent-technology NMC/graphite lithium-ion chemistry, the businesses have created a battery with excessive vitality density that’s exceptionally safe and makes use of no flammable liquid electrolyte. By not utilizing extra unique electrodes akin to lithium metallic, an ASSB with a stable polymer electrolyte might be launched to the market a lot sooner.
The innovation enables the manufacture of a full-scale ASSB utilizing in the present day’s excessive quantity lithium-ion manufacturing tools. The result’s a value-efficient technique to make electric autos safer, lighter, and fewer advanced. Functions within the power storage markets may profit from this expertise, which may scale back or remove the necessity for cooling and the need for hearth suppression. This distinctive method is anticipated to allow the excessive quantity launch of strong-state technology into the market as quickly as 2022.
Mike Zimmerman of Ionic Materials and Brian Sisk of A123 can be presenting outcomes of this improvement on the Superior Automotive Battery Conference (AABC) on Tuesday, June 25 in San Diego, CA.
Ionic Materials is a supplies know-how firm that permits subsequent-era stable-state batteries. It is breakthrough polymer the primary stable electrolyte to operate at room temperature and be appropriate with lithium and alkaline-primarily based batteries and allow new and superior electrode chemistries to enhance battery security considerably, efficiency and cost. Developed by a world-class staff of polymer scientists, Ionic Materials is headquartered in Woburn, MA.
