Univ. of Maryland team develops promising sodium-ion cathode material: FePO4/nanotube composite

Green Car Congress

Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a nanocomposite material of amorphous, porous FePO 4 nanoparticles electrically wired by single-wall carbon nanotubes as a potential cathode material for sodium-ion batteries (SIBs). Recently, sodium ion batteries (SIBs) have drawn increasing attention from researchers, despite the fact that lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are still the predominant power source for home electronics and for future large-scale energy storage devices.

New investments in EV charging infrastructure, lower EV prices, continuous improvements in vehicle range, and the flow of new EV models are also spurring this growth. New chemistries such as sodium-ion offer promise of incremental improvement.

They include the desire to increase the driving range of more modestly priced electric cars from 150 to well over 500 km, and the need to lower the cost and provide maintenance-free technologies for grid applications. A nearly threefold decrease of the stored kWh price to €200 per kWh at the pack level is predicted in the next 10 years, driven at least in part by both the large volume production and the realistic prospects of a second life for electric vehicle batteries.

Connecting rods and pistons. Like the crankshaft, the connecting rods and pistons are designed to support the greater load of the turbo system. The connecting rods are forged steel and the lightweight hypereutectic pistons are designed with a thicker crown area and a unique ring pack to withstand the boost pressure and heat generated by the turbo system. Sodium-filled exhaust valves are designed for the higher combustion temperatures of the turbo system.
