Enabling Solid-State Batteries Through Polymer Innovation

Tue. September 11| 3:00 PM - 3:15 PM | Crystal Ballroom

Current lithium-ion battery technologies have improved significantly over the past decade, but this architecture is reaching its limits in terms of energy density, cost and safety. That's why next-generation battery applications require solutions that will push us past the barriers of current battery technologies and to a future that's powered by truly solid-state batteries, a market that's projected to reach $1.1 billion by 2020.

Historically, there have been three different types of solid-state solutions that have been developed and tested by battery experts: ceramics, glasses and polymers. In lab studies, all three have shown promise, but there have been issues scaling them for larger battery cell applications and ensuring that they work at wide temperature ranges.

In this session, attendees will learn about a new polymer material that enables safe solid-state batteries that are operational at room temperature and compatible with a handful of widely desired, next-generation battery chemistries, including safe lithium ion, lithium metal, rechargeable alkaline and more. The presentation will provide inside access to data and use cases for polymer electrolyte battery solutions.
