Creating lithium-ion batteries is a hugely energy-intensive process and consequently, battery-electric cars take approximately 17,000km to repay their carbon debt.
Nanoramic Laboratories has come up with a way to reduce by over 30% the amount of energy required to manufacture lithium-ion batteries, while at the same time making them more energy-dense, and increasing their expected lifespan.
Sound too good to be true I invited Nanoramics Founder and Chief of Products and Innovation, John Cooley to come on the podcast to tell us more.
We had a fascinating conversation talking about how Nanoramics technology works, how it can be used in virtually any currently operating battery plant, and John's thoughts on using this tech in stationary storage. I learned loads. I hope you do too.
