    • Record type: Abstract

  • In US, Johnson Matthey are exploring future battery technology, balancing the content of the stabilising nickel with another rare and expensive material such as cobalt, or cheaper manganese and aluminium, in order to provide high energy density with rapid and numerous charging cycles. These cathode ...

  • In Australia, the University of Technology Sydney is developing the Kermit IV, a low cost hybrid-electric car based on a 1990 Mazda MX-5. A 10 kW electric motor is fitted ahead of the differential, together with a low voltage (96 V) battery pack. This permits a fuel saving of 8 to 23%, with the cost...

    • Record type: Abstract

  • The downside of electric vehicles would appear to be the demand for cobalt, nickel and lithium for batteries that could cause environmental damage to sources such as China, Bolivia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Furthermore, manufacturing of an electric car emits twice as much CO2 as its dies...
