Edinburgh-based energy storage solutions specialist StorTera has developed a long-duration, energy-dense, lithium-sulfur-based single liquid flow battery (SLIQ). The tech is said to last for 30 years with minimal degradation.
Scientists in the United States developed a lithium-sulfur battery using a commercially available carbonate electrolyte, that retained more than 80% of its initial capacity after 4000 cycles. The group used a vapor deposition process which unexpectedly produced a form of sulfur that did not react with the electrolyte, overcoming one of the key challenges for this battery chemistry.
Low-cost batteries and novel perovskite materials are among the topics selected for joint research and development.
Shiv Nadar University researchers have synthesized sulfur-rich copolymers from petroleum and agricultural waste as cathode materials for Lithium-Sulfur (Li-S) batteries. IIT-Bombay, which is developing a Li-S battery prototype based on the technology, recorded an average Coulombic efficiency of 99.3% after 500 cycles at 1C, one hour rate of charge and discharge, for the cardanol/sulfur copolymer cathode containing 2.5wt% reduced graphene oxide (rGO).
