CarboPower

The CarboPower project investigates the use of CNT as alternative conductivity additives to lithium-ion batteries in energy storage. The high electrical conductivity of CNT promises better battery durability with rapid charging and discharging. Furthermore, the project aims to improve the mechanical integrity of electrodes on the basis of the elasticity of CNT, which would again have a positive impact on the service life of batteries. The prerequisite for this objective includes the adaptation of the source materials to the requirements of the battery and the difficult optimization of electrode compositions. These accomplishments may allow for new applications in a wide range of fields such as modern electrical vehicles or as efficient interim storage for using renewable energies.
