FAA grounds US Boeing 787 Dreamliners after second incident with Li-ion battery; GS Yuasa Lithium Power the manufacturer

Green Car Congress

At the time, GS Yuasa said its Li-ion batteries offered 100% greater energy storage capacity than the existing nickel-cadmium batteries used in airliners. Since it is maintenance-free and has longer service life comparing to current nickel-cadmium batteries, it makes for lower operating costs and increased safety for airline companies.

Saft and ESMA to Cooperate on Supercapacitor Development, Production and Commercialization; Heavy Diesels First Target

Green Car Congress

The first results will be seen later in 2009, when Saft’s US manufacturing facility in Valdosta, GA begins production of a new generation of asymmetric nickel supercapacitors that will work in combination with batteries on heavy vehicles in a large variety of markets including, but not limited to, industry or public transportation. ESMA’s patented asymmetric nickel capacitors feature one battery electrode mated with a double layer charge storage (capacitor) electrode.

Saft signs supercapacitor agreement

Green Cars News

Later this year, the company’s US manufacturing facility will begin production of a new generation of asymmetric nickel supercapacitors that should work in combination with batteries on heavy vehicles. Currently, Saft manufacturers have a range of advanced batteries for application including lithium and nickel chemistries. ESMA’s design has an important synergy with Saft’s capabilities as its construction is similar to that used in nickel-cadmium cells.
