The recent research conducted on a new lithium-sulfur battery is ser to revolutionize a lot of industries and businesses.

Fremont, CA: Batteries are an imperishable product for any recycler. Not only is the material unsafe but it is terribly expensive, difficult, and time-consuming to break apart and dissolve. The worth of batteries continues to dip as cheaper batteries is factory-made with less complicated parts hit the market at regular intervals. However, there is recent analysis being conducted on a brand new lithium-sulfur battery which is able to revolutionize a great deal of industries. The aim is to develop high energy and safe lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery technology cells for automotive integration with hybrid solid state non-flammable electrolytes. A production cost target has conjointly been set, because it is the main battery selection criteria in electrified vehicles.

The main issue with electric battery would involve the load that comes with the electrodes, so involving different variables and per

formance boosters to eliminate the mentioned and more by completely removing binders and current cathode collectors which represent 30-50 percent of the electrode weight can facilitate so, and the process takes only seconds to make a cathode of sulfur when compared to the current process that take hours.

Li-S batteries with nanofiber electrodes have shown a vast form of benefits over the present battery and its components. With a large surface area, these electrodes can expand while charging while simultaneously boosting the storage capacity. The electrodes can eliminate flammable parts from devices by filling them with an electrolyte gel to minimize their susceptibility to leaks, fires, and explosions. Kalra's laboratory developed a fast sulfur deposition technique that only takes five seconds to induce the sulfur into its substratum. In a slightly pressurized, 140-degree Celsius setting, the procedure melts sulfur into the nanofiber mats eliminating the requirement for time-consuming processing that uses a mixture of toxic chemicals, while improving the power of the cathode to hold a charge after long use periods. Research shows that these electrodes have a sustained economical capacity four times higher than the existing Li-ion batteries.

With the new technology research underway, mobile technology firms have started its investment toward its development. The new Li-S batteries offer longer charging capacity than the current batteries, and will be useful for the electric vehicles, wind, and solar power segments.
