Li-S Batteries: from organic to aqueous electrolytes

The research on Li-S batteries is definitely progressing and superior cycling performances are achieved at the laboratory scale. Now the question is how all this great knowledge gained from the small laboratory scale experiments would be implemented into the large scale cells while still be able to outperform the Li-ion batteries readily available at the marketplace. The seminar will start with the conventional Li-S battery technology. Every aspects of the manufacturing of a 3 Ah Li-S pouch cell will be unveiled and discussed in details that are conclusively an undisclosed process. Then, aqueous Li-ion/polysulphide batteries will be subjected offering great promise due to the use of low cost and abundant raw materials.
