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.

Tesla files patent to recover and recycle nickel and cobalt in old batteries


Tesla has filed a patent that aims to recover undamaged and unutilized nickel and cobalt, two crucial raw materials in battery cells. Costs for both nickel and cobalt have skyrocketed recently. Nickel is up 9.25% in the same time frame, according to

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.

Could the Prius be harmful to the environment?

Green Cars News

The controversy centres on its use of a nickel metal hydride battery. According to them, the nickel on the Toyota Prius battery is mined in Sudbury, Ontario and then it is smelted nearby where there are reports of damage to the environment. The nickel is then shipped to a refinery in Wales. From there, it is sent to China to be made into nickel foam before being shipped to Japan and made into a hybrid battery.

PIP Declares Victory
