ExxonMobil Chemical and ExxonMobil’s Japanese affiliate, Tonen Chemical, will present new separator film technologies for lithium-ion batteries at the upcoming 23rd Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition (EVS-23) in Anaheim, Calif. on December 2-5, 2007.
In May at the AABC event in Long Beach, ExxonMobil and Tonen introduced new separator film for lithium-ion batteries featuring significant improvements in porosity and thermal properties compared to its predecessors. (Earlier post.)
By developing new film technologies that allow lithium-ion batteries to meet hybrid and electric vehicle requirements, ExxonMobil Chemical is helping to make next generation vehicles more energy and cost efficient, as well as lighter. We are currently working with industry-leading battery manufacturers to expand the boundaries of current hybrid and electric vehicle applications.—Jim P. Harris, senior vice president, ExxonMobil Chemical Company
