Electric vehicle (EV) batteries reach the end of their service lives in 5-8 years. The repair, remanufacturing and recycling of EV batteries can have significant economic and environmental impacts.

Construction of Ultrathin Layered MXene-TiN Heterostructure Enabling Favorable Catalytic Ability for High-Areal-Capacity Lithium–Sulfur Batteries

An in-situ strategy to synthesize ultrathin two-dimensional MXene-TiN heterostructures and the ultrathin structure extremely shortens the electrons diffusion distance from catalysts to active sulfur



Global implications of the EU battery regulation

The EU has proposed a new Battery Regulation that intends to ensure sustainability for batteries placed on the EU market, developing a robust European battery industry and value chain and will have global implications, with perhaps some unintended consequences.

Lithium ion battery recycling using high-intensity ultrasonication

Decarbonisation of energy will rely heavily, at least initially, on the use of lithium ion batteries for automotive transportation. The projected volumes of batteries necessitate the development of

Insights into Layered Oxide Cathodes for Rechargeable Batteries

This article discusses how alkali–alkali interactions within the Li layer influence the voltage profile, the role of the transition metal electronic structure in dictating O3-structural stability, and the mechanism for alkali diffusion.

Circular economy strategies for electric vehicle batteries reduce reliance on raw materials

The wide adoption of lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles will require increased natural resources for the automotive industry. The expected rapid increase in batteries could result in new

High‐Nickel NMA: A Cobalt‐Free Alternative to NMC and NCA Cathodes for Lithium‐Ion Batteries

Considering the flexibility in compositional tuning and immediate synthesis scalability of high-Ni NMA very similar to NCA and NMC, this study opens a new space for cathode material development for next-generation high-energy, cobalt-free Li-ion batteries.
