Silicon-based anodes for Lithium-ion cells: Benefits and challenges

Digital Workshop organized by VIRTUAL VEHICLE

16th November 2021 | 09:30 -13:30 Central European Time (CEST) | Webinar (MS Teams)

Silicon is a promising candidate to replace the state-of-the-art material graphite as anode material in lithium-ion cells in the near future. Silicon shows a very high specific capacity for storing lithium-ion and will therefore increase the energy density of cells and in further consequence the range of battery electric vehicles. On the downside this material suffers from large volume change upon lithiation which leads to a faster degradation, which impedes its full commercialisation.

In the workshop different aspects of this material class will be presented and discussed in a series of expert talks highlighting its benefits and current challenges. The event can be joined free of charge by filling out the registration form.
