ICE-Batt to optimise battery technology project
Johnson Matthey (JM), has teamed up with CPI, an independent technology innovation centre and Thomas Swan, one of the UK’s leading independent chemical manufacturers, to explore how to best optimise battery technology.
The ICE-Batt project receives funding support from the Faraday Battery Challenge, managed by Innovate UK – the UK’s innovation agency – to enable the investigation of how innovative carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) can improve battery performance. Ultimately this could lead to improvements in energy density, power density and low temperature performance of lithium-ion and beyond lithium-ion technologies. In addition, the project will explore how to improve the green credentials of battery processing.
ICE-Batt will combine Thomas Swan’s innovative GNP technology and CPI’s formulation expertise to explore how together they can help realise the full potential from JM’s high performance battery materials. The battery market was revolutionised by the advent of lithium-ion technology in 1991.
