Samsung SDI-Bosch Li-ion joint venture SB LiMotive targeting battery capacity for about 50,000 EVs by 2013, 180,000 by 2015

Green Car Congress

SB LiMotive, the Samsung SDI-Bosch Li-ion 50:50 joint venture formed in 2008 ( earlier post ) has been working on developing automotive lithium-ion energy-storage systems, including various sizes of cell, entire battery systems, and battery management systems, as well as its production capacity. The company currently offers eight types of cell from 5 Ah up to 60 Ah across the five VDA classes. It is scheduled for launch in the United States at the start of 2013.

Researchers boost performance of lithium-rich cathode material 30-40% by creating oxygen vacancies

Green Car Congress

An international team of researchers has demonstrated a new way to increase the robustness and energy storage capability of a particular class of “lithium-rich” cathode materials by using a carbon dioxide-based gas mixture to create oxygen vacancies at the material’s surface.
