Li-S Energy recently engaged BatTRI-Hub to expand its core scientific team, with projects focused on exploiting the company’s unique Li-nanomesh anode protection in lithium-metal batteries, and developing augmented solid state and polymer electrolytes.
Professor Forsyth says she welcomes the collaboration between Li-S Energy and the FBICRC and hopes it will shine the spotlight more brightly on future battery technologies in Australia.
“There is so much excellent fundamental and applied research being done across Australia in the battery industry and research community. FBICRC collaborative industry projects enable us to develop and share fundamental battery R&D among industry participants, enabling companies like Li-S Energy to leverage the results as a springboard for their own unique innovations, such as Li-S Energy’s BNNT and Li-nanomesh enhanced lithium sulfurand lithium metal batteries”
CEO Dr. Lee Finniear commented:
“At Li-S Energy our goal is to deliver lithium sulfurand lithium metal batteries with unprecedented performance and cycle life, by using our unique BNNT and Li-nanomesh nano-composites. These batteries are the “holy grail” of EV, drone and electric aviation markets, combining high energy storage and low weight.
Our collaboration with FBICRC accelerates our time to market by enabling us to access advanced electrolytes developed specifically for these high energy cells, further magnifying the benefits over lithium-ion.
We are proud to be supporting the Australian battery ecosystem through our joint investment and contribution to the FBICRC, and to be playing our part in projecting Australia onto the global stage as an innovative player in the drive to deliver the global Carbon Zero economy.”
