​Iron-Based Cathode Breakthrough for Cheaper Batteries

Recently, researchers have achieved a significant breakthrough by developing an iron-based cathode material, potentially revolutionizing battery technology and paving the way for more affordable, safer, and sustainable batteries, particularly for electric vehicles (EVs).

  • The new iron-based cathode material eliminates the need for costly and scarce metals like cobalt and nickel used in battery manufacturing, promising to reduce manufacturing costs of EVs.
  • The excessive use of scarce metals accounts for up to 50% of the production cost of lithium-ion battery cells, and their overexploitation may lead to shortages and disruptions in battery manufacturing.
  • In contrast, iron is abundantly available on Earth, ensuring a stable ....
