Nuria Tapia-Ruiz of Imperial College London and the Faraday Institution’s Nexgenna project is partnering with Deregallera for the CARBPHOS project, aiming to improve the performance of sodium-ion batteries
They will be researching the potential of carbon and phosphorous as anode materials. The project will aim to improve the capacity of these materials by investigating the porous carbon hosts for the phosphorisation process and improve first cycle capacity loss by using electrolyte additives.
The project is working towards improving the performance and safety of these low-cost, high-energy composite materials and to capitalise the UK’s position as a global leader in sodium-ion battery research to accelerate the commercialisation of these technologies.
