A team from Chung Yuan Christian University in Taiwan has fabricated a novel Fe3V3O8 (FVO) anode material for Na/Li-ion storage using hydrothermal technology for the first time. The electrochemical results indicated that the initial sodiation capacity of the FVO anode is as high as 805 mA h g−1 at 100... Read more →

Altris and Stora Enso partner to develop hard carbon anode material for sodium-ion batteries

Altris, a Swedish developer and prototype manufacturer of sodium-ion batteries, and Stora Enso, a provider of renewable products in packaging, biomaterials and wooden construction, are partnering to drive the adaptation of Stora Enso’s hard carbon solution Lignode (earlier post) as an anode material in Altris’ sodium-ion battery cells. Altris’ sodium-ion... Read more →

Altris, Clarios formalize joint development agreement for low-voltage sodium-ion battery systems

Clarios and Altris, a Swedish developer and prototype manufacturer of sodium-ion batteries, announced an exclusive Joint Development Agreement (JDA) for low-voltage mobility applications. Under the new JDA, Altris will focus on developing the sodium-ion cell technology for low-voltage applications, while Clarios will leverage its expertise in Battery Management Systems (BMS),...
