Carbon coated Silicon Production Scaling Up for Li-ion batteries

Project description

New battery to energise electric vehicles

The electric vehicles (EV) market has yet to shift into high gear. Growth in EV sales has been weak, but better batteries could empower the EV revolution. Scientists and engineers are working hard to make batteries more powerful. The EU-funded DEBIMAX project aims to bring to market a new anode material for lithium-ion batteries. The carbon-coated silicon can partly replace the natural graphite current used in batteries. Already available for portable electronics, this new material can triple capacities. What is more, it is cost-efficient and can be available at large scale for the automotive mass market.
