Research Institution
The low efficiency, low rate capability, high cost and poor cycle life limit the commercialization of lithium air battery technology. Giner Inc. (Giner) proposes to develop a high-porosity, fibrous composite air cathode with a low- cost catalyst and a designed mechanism to manage electrolyte flooding. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Beside its applications in energy grid stabilization and consumer electronic devices, lithium air battery is a promising opportunity for electric cars.
