Unlock the Potential
of Graphene Batteries:
A Superior Alternative
Discover the transformative potential of graphene, a remarkable two-dimensional material that’s revolutionizing the battery industry. Graphene batteries offer a suite of advantages, thanks to their unique electro-mechanical properties.
These include unparalleled electrical conductivity—100 times that of copper—allowing electrons to move 140 times faster than in silicon. Their superior mechanical strength and thermal conductivity enhance performance, while exceptional fire-retardant properties ensure stability and safety even at high temperatures. Research from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) highlights that adding just a small amount of graphene can significantly boost the power and cycling stability of lithium-ion batteries, without compromising their high energy storage capacity.
Traditional lithium-ion batteries rely on a process where lithium ions move between the cathode and anode using a liquid electrolyte, which can be time-consuming, especially during recharging. While these batteries have seen improvements in power density, reducing charging times remains a challenge. Despite emerging technologies aiming to address this issue, finding an ideal balance of high energy density, rapid charging, longevity, safety, and cost-effectiveness continues to be elusive. Issues like the formation of a solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) in silicon anode batteries, which significantly reduces energy storage capacity and lifespan, further complicate matters.
Graphene batteries emerge as a superior solution, excelling in all critical aspects. They can store a larger amount of energy compared to lithium-ion batteries of the same size and weight and recharge significantly faster. However, the complexity and cost of producing high-quality graphene have been barriers. Innovations by teams like the one at Capattery are making strides in producing graphene economically, paving the way for this technology’s broader adoption.
