New anode technologies | Cobra

This report delves into the significance of anodes in EV batteries and examines the potential of new technologies like silicon, lithium metal, and anode-free solutions. It outlines the advantages and challenges of each technology and aims to enhance battery performance and reduce reliance on China’s supply chain. The report also covers the role of anodes in conventional lithium-ion batteries and the manufacturing process of active anode materials. Additionally, it discusses the benefits and limitations of graphite anodes, silicon anodes, and lithium metal anodes in EV applications. The exploration of anode-free batteries as a trending topic is also provided, highlighting the need for improved cathode-electrolyte interphases and solid-state electrolytes.

Building batteries better: doing the best with less | NRDC

This report discusses the importance of transitioning to electric vehicles (EVs) to meet climate goals and reduce pollution. However, it acknowledges that EV batteries require mined minerals, which can cause environmental and social problems. The report proposes strategies to minimise mineral usage, extend battery lifespans through second-life applications, and improve recycling. It emphasises the need for a more sustainable and circular battery supply chain while promoting cleaner transportation options. Ultimately, the aim is to reduce the harmful impacts of mining and create a cleaner and just economy.
