Cobalt-free batteries, a new frontier for advanced battery recycling

LiCoO<inf>2</inf> is the positive electrode in 75% of the market. In response to cost pressure, electrodes that dilute or eliminate expensive cobalt have been developed such as LiCoNiMnO<inf>2</inf>, LiMn<inf>2</inf>O<inf>2</inf> or LiFePO<inf>4</inf>. The new chemistries expand lithium-ion battery use into high-power niches such as tools and prototype… CONTINUE READING
