SODIUM TECHNOLOGIES: BEYOND LITHIUM
Capable of supporting large scale energy storage generated from renewable resources, sodium provides a low cost, sustainable alternative to the current lithium technologies.
We are looking at the chemistries involved in novel electrode and electrolyte materials within sodium batteries, with an emphasis on improving battery performance.
This involves incorporating novel electrolyte materials such as ionic liquids and polymer composites.
Due to the similarities between lithium and sodium, sodium pouch cell prototypes can be manufactured and tested using the BatTRI-Hub’s state of the art Pouch Cell Facility.
