Charged EVs | Researchers discover lower than 1% quantity enlargement in pouch cells with E-magy’s silicon-dominant anodes


Researchers from the German analysis institute ZSW and the Dutch battery firm E-magy have studied cell enlargement in lithium-ion pouch cells with silicon-dominant anodes.

The analysis assessed quantity enlargement in cells with NMC cathodes and E-magy’s nano-porous silicon anodes by way of 100 cycles. “E-magy has developed a nano-porous silicon which absorbs the enlargement within the nano construction itself,” says the corporate.

In an article revealed within the Journal of the Electrochemical Society, the researchers write: “Contemplating the biking time required to succeed in the 80% capability retention threshold, the cell expanded in complete lower than 1% of its unique thickness.”

In line with E-magy, that is the primary time {that a} lower than 1% battery cell enlargement has been demonstrated in a silicon-dominant lithium-ion battery.

“With silicon-dominant anodes turning into a actuality, we are going to see an entire slew of latest product classes which have merely not been doable till now,” says E-magy CEO Casper Peeters.
