The race to the electrification of the automotive powertrain is on. The current drive to rapidly improve global air quality means battery electric vehicles will inevitably play an increasing role in the energy mix. Adoption is reaching a tipping point, but to accelerate the change automotive OEMs must demonstrate that the next generation of vehicles will meet the public’s expectations for range, power and lifetime cost.
Cathode materials are the key to unlocking the potential of the battery electric vehicle. We're scaling up our family of nickel-rich advanced cathode materials eLNO® now, so it's ready for the technical demands of the future. It features a layered nickel rich oxide structure with a proprietary stabiliser package and advanced surface modifications that allow the use of high nickel contents whilst moving to increasingly lower levels of cobalt to deliver superior energy density whilst sustaining excellent cycle life.
And eLNO is just the beginning. We collaborate closely with our customers to develop the battery materials of the future, looking to the next generation and beyond.
