Electrode Materials From the Microwave Oven

Dr. Jennifer Ludwig at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a process, that allows a fast, simple, and cost-effective production of nanocrystalline lithium cobalt phosphate crystals. Compared to standard lithium iron phosphate this material improves the energy density of lithium-ion batteries from about 600 to 800 watt hours per kilogram.

Power on the go is in demand: The higher the battery capacity, the larger the range of electric cars and the longer the operating time of cell phones and laptops. Dr. Jennifer Ludwig of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed a process that allows a fast, simple, and cost-effective production

Electric Cars can Become More Eco-Friendly Through Life Cycle Assessment

Anders Nordelöf believes that the much-discussed environmental issues associated with electric cars should be taken seriously, but thinks that more focus is needed on solving the issues -- not on discussing whether electric cars should exist at all. Here, life cycle assessment is an important tool.

It is time to stop discussing whether electric cars are good or bad. Instead industry, authorities and policy-makers need to work together to make them as eco-friendly as possible. This is the view taken by Anders Nordelöf, a researcher at Chalmers University of Technology. In a recent thesis, he provides concrete
