MGX enters next phase of high energy lithium-ion battery development
MGX and UBC are working together to develop next-generation Li-ion batteries capable of quadrupling energy density from current 100 Wh/kg up to 400 Wh/kg for use in long-range electric vehicles and grid storage.
Nanoscale drug delivery method developed
Researchers have developed a novel way to deliver drugs and therapies into cells at the nanoscale without causing toxic effects that have stymied other such efforts. The work could someday lead to more effective therapies and diagnostics for cancer and other illnesses.
Research hints at double the driving range for electric vehicles
When it comes to the special sauce of batteries, researchers have discovered it's all about the salt concentration. By getting the right amount of salt, right where they want it, they've demonstrated a small lithium-metal battery can re-charge about seven times more than batteries with conventional electrolytes.
New water-splitting method could open path to hydrogen economy
Researchers have found a way to more efficiently generate hydrogen from water — an important key to making clean energy more viable.
Sodium battery could provide cheap, effective lithium alternative
Sodium-ion batteries might soon provide a less expensive, viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries. The new technology also would help solve material sustainability issues by alleviating the mining of lithium - a diminishing resource.
ShAPEing the future of magnesium car parts
Magnesium — the lightest of all structural metals — has a lot going for it in the quest to make ever lighter cars and trucks that go farther on a tank of fuel or battery charge.
Coming together, falling apart, and starting over, battery style
Whether inside your laptop computer or storing energy outside wind farms, we need high-capacity, long-lasting, and safe batteries.
New thin films can self-repair following damage
Separating one chemical from another may sound incredibly dull, but it's vital to making everything from plastic dishes to cleaning drinking water.
Unienergy Technologies is a rising star in the redox flow space, with MWh-scale projects around the globe and a clear ownership of the whole supply chain.
Self-charging tag tracks fish as long as they swim
With each swish of a tail, scientists now have a tool that could study the movements of fish throughout their entire lives.
New steel for better electric motors
Within a few years, the U.S. Department of Energy wants plug-in electric vehicles to be just as affordable and convenient as the internal-combustion machines most of us drive today.
Unexpected discovery leads to a better battery
An unexpected discovery has led to a rechargeable battery that's as inexpensive as conventional car batteries, but has a much higher energy density.
