Silicon Light

By Sparks

As battery demand shifts towards ย high energy cathodes, the limitations of graphite require silicon additives to achieve high energy density.ย  In fact, silicon based anode materials are being introduced by more and more companies. NIO & GAC announce โ€œinorganic pre-lithiated silicon carbon negative electrode technology” Carbon-coated silicon oxide (SiOx /C) & silicon-carbon (Si/C) particles are…

INTERBATTERY 2021 The Big Three Korean battery makers

By Sparks

The Big Three Korean battery makers revealed their differing approaches at the recent 2021 Inter Battery Expo in South Korea. Here are the key highlights +Still very much focused on developing the layered oxide cathodes- high nickel single crystals -More silicon on the anodes- Silicon-Carbon nanocomposite, Silicon oxide + Dry electrode manufacturing o No consensus…
