Research Institution
American Energy Technologies Co. will partner with Eagle Picher Technologies and Alion Science & Technology in order to develop a lean and efficient method for synthesis of Lithium battery grade carbon monofluoride (CFx). The focus of the development work will be on continuous processing, application of domestic raw materials and use of modern material de-aggregation techniques for particles of the end-product. Proposed reaction synthesis will yield a product with F/C ratio from 0.9 to 1.1. The project will address subjects of reactor design and fabrication; mapping the process; identifying, selecting and pre-treating raw material to produce experimental size batches of CFx. Using fluorinated samples, the contractor will further explore the effects of post-synthesis treatment of the finished product - a step aimed at minimizing the initial voltage drop phenomena in resultant CFx (a known drawback with CFx materials used today). The process development part of the project shall be complemented by electrochemical and physicochemical characterization studies of new materials vs control.
