China BAK Battery and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics collaborate on next-gen batteries

28 July 2014

China BAK Battery, Inc. (CBAK) will collaborate with Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (DICP) in the R&D of next-generation battery manufacturing technologies with new battery materials, from lab scale tests, pilot scale tests to industrial tests, and related special preparation techniques.

In addition, CBAK and DICP will also cooperate in training graduate and post-doctoral students and co-build a graduate practice base, which will provide talent and technical support towards enhancing China’s international competitiveness in the power battery industry.

With China’s improving support for new energy vehicles, continued growth is expected in the new energy vehicle market. The lithium battery industry, as the battery components of new energy vehicles, has thus been elevated to a strategic height, CBAK notes. The R&D of next-generation advanced lithium battery and its key materials—characterized by high energy density, high security, long-lasting life, and low cost— as well as the training of related technical talents, have become a major demand in the development of advanced electric vehicles in China.

The ultimate aim of technological R&D is to serve industrial progress. The cooperation between CBAK and DICP in aggregating and training technologically innovative talents in the field of power battery materials will help further develop key technologies and materials of power battery, effectively break through the bottleneck of the industry, and promote the development of the electric vehicle industry.

—Baolian Yi, academician of DICP

The CBAK industrial base at Huayuankou District in Dalian is expected to be formally put into production in the second half of this year. The base covers an area of 231 mu (or 15.4 ha), forecasts an annual output of 120 million Ah, and will be applied in such fields as electric vehicles, light electric vehicles, power tools, transportation and energy storage.

DICP has long been engaged in the R&D of electrical energy conversion, focusing on the development of new energy technologies characterized by high energy density, high durability, eco-friendliness and suitability for electric vehicles, distributed power substation and mobile communications. It has undertaken a number of projects under such programs as “973”, “863”, ministry-designated and Natural Science Foundation projects, accumulating extensive experience in battery engineering development in electric energy conversion and storage.
