Anode Active Material for Lithium-Ion Batteries
ONEJOON has experience with industrial furnaces in graphite and carbon production for decades
Lithium-ion batteries have a pivotal role in shaping our future life. They are not only crucial in everyday electronic devices and consumer gadgets but they will also tremendously change our way of mobility in electric vehicles (EVs) or in E-scooters. This is due to their perfect rechargeability, adequate power density, and outstanding energy density.
The key component is graphite, that serves as a lithium-ion host structure for the negative electrode (commonly called the Anode). Researchers and companies worldwide are eager to find new materials, improving power and energy density, while maintaining the excellent cycling stability of graphite. However, natural and synthetic graphite (with an approx. fifty-fifty market share) are still the major anode materials in commercially available lithium-ion batteries. So obviously graphite and it’s composites is supposed to remain the suitable material as lithium-ion intercalation host in commercially available Lithium-ion batteries in future.
Relatively new and still under extensive research are silicone-carbon composites as active material for the negative electrode. However, they are about to reach commercialization within a very short time period.
