HiSuperBat will design a new, low-cost, and safe prototype of Li-free aqueous rechargeable hybrid cell by applying the concept of the hybridization of battery and supercapacitor component into one device, which would enable retained performance of individual electrodes. It will be achieved through the development of new and high-capacity electrode materials for the next generation of batteries and supercapacitors, relying on earth-abundant multivalent cations such as Ca, Mg, or Al.
- the limited lithium sources
- cost and safety issues of Li-ion battery due to the presence of Li, Co and organic electrolyte.
Multivalent-ion batteries could be one of the solutions which would solve the issue of lithium, reduce the price of the battery, simplify production and make it safer. Therefore, the search for new, low cost and high safety materials, capable of storing large amount of multivalent-ions, is of great importance and HisuperBat will address these challenges.
- The HiSuperBat project has gathered researchers from three reputable institutions under the patronage of University of Belgrade, into a team which would contribute to the development of the future energy storage technology.
