Enevate’s Silicon Anodes Could Yield EV Batteries That Run 400 km on a 5-Minute Charge

Maria J. Danford

Battery makers have for years been seeking to change the graphite anode in lithium-ion batteries with a model built of silicon, which would give electric autos a significantly for a longer time variety. Some batteries with silicon anodes are getting close to marketplace for wearables and electronics. The recipes for these silicon-prosperous anodes that a handful of organizations are producing typically use silicon oxide or a combine of silicon and carbon.

But Irvine, CA-dependent Enevate is working with an engineered porous film built mainly of pure silicon. In addition to currently being economical, the new anode product, which founder … Read the More
