It’s this last issue that Chief Executive Officer Herbert Diess drives home with VW’s more than 635,000 employees. The transition in competencies from industrial might to software prowess will be an immense challenge for automakers that are vast, deliberate and some say ripe for disruption. Car companies that get it wrong risk ending up like Nokia Oyj—failed hardware makers doomed by more nimble and technologically adept upstarts.

RNU: SILICON-ENHANCED ANODES USING SIVIOUR GRAPHITE
November 25th, 2020

Preliminary half-cell trials of Renascor’s Siviour Purified Spherical Graphite (PSG) in silicon-composite anodes deliver exceptional electrochemical performance results.

The addition of silicon in graphite anodes offers the potential to improve the storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries, with considerable attention focused on developing an efficient next-generation, silicon-enhanced anode.

The silicon-enhanced anode test program, undertaken by next-generation silicon-composite anode developer Sicona Battery Technologies Pty Ltd, was designed to assess initial discharge capacity, the amount of charge delivered by a battery during its initial use.

The tests, which were an initial, unoptimised trial of silicon-enhanced anodes produced with Renascor’s Siviour PSG, returned significantly higher initial discharge capacity than graphite-only anodes (up to 81% higher).

Silicon-composite anodes produced with Renascor's Siviour PSG met or exceeded the performance of all reference natural graphite previously tested by Sicona, a result attributed by Sicona to the favourable crystallinity, uniformity and surface area of Renascor’s Siviour PSG.

As a result of these positive preliminary results, Renascor and Sicona plan to undertake more extensive full cell tests to further validate the viability of using Renascor’s Siviour PSG in Sicona's silicon-enhanced anodes, prior to conducting a commercial trial at Sicona’s planned pilot production plant in Wollongong, New South Wales.

Successful testwork using emerging Silicon composite technology builds on Renascor's previously demonstrated performance in conventional graphite battery anode technology testing.
