Enevate’s Silicon Anodes Could Yield EV Batteries That Run 400 km on a 5-Minute Charge

Battery makers have for several years been seeking to exchange the graphite anode in lithium-ion batteries with a model manufactured of silicon, which would give electric cars a much longer variety. Some batteries with silicon anodes are obtaining close to market for wearables and electronics. The recipes for these silicon-wealthy anodes that a handful of providers are building usually use silicon oxide or a blend of silicon and carbon.

But Irvine, CA-dependent Enevate is utilizing an engineered porous movie manufactured predominantly of pure silicon. In addition to getting affordable, the new anode material, which founder and main technological innovation … Read More
