University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign engineers have developed a solid polymer-based electrolyte that can self-heal after damage. Plus the material can also be recycled without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures. The new study, which could help manufacturers produce recyclable, self-healing commercial batteries, is published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. […]

Korea’s Pohang University of Science & Technology engineers have developed a three-dimensional monolithic organic battery electrode. With the launch of wearable devices and smartphones that require high capacity of electricity such as foldable phones and 5G phones, the interest in batteries is increasing and various battery types are getting developed. For example, think of flexible […]

Australia’s Monash University researchers have developed the world’s most efficient lithium-sulfur battery, capable of powering a smartphone for five continuous days. The prototype cells have been developed in Germany. Further testing in cars and solar grids is to take place in Australia during 2020. The researchers have a filed patent on the manufacturing process, and […]

Happy New Year! DOE/Argonne National Laboratory researchers have turned to the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence to dramatically accelerate battery discovery. The press release likens designing new batteries with the best molecular building blocks for battery components to trying to create a recipe for a new kind of cake, when you have billions […]

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory scientists have designed an affordable ‘flow battery’ membrane that could accelerate renewable energy for the electrical grid. The press release asks, “How do you store renewable energy so it’s there when you need it, even when the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing?” Answering, “Giant batteries designed for the […]
