LG now uses NMC patents: LG Chem has entered into a license agreement with 3M to use nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) cathode materials more widely. It can now utilise 3M patented materials in the USA, Asia and Europe and position itself as cathode supplier as well.
Improved graphene production: Scientists at RWTH Aachen University and research centre Jülich have developed a new method to produce synthetic, high-quality graphene on a large scale. The production is based on chemical vapour deposition (CVD), a known method the researchers refined by avoiding contamination of graphene obtained and recycling the copper used during the process.
The next electric plane could look like one of these five designs NASA selected as winning concepts. The design challenge was aimed at university students, asked to outline a four-seater electric aircraft able to fly 575 minutes. Overall winner was the Georgia Institute of Technology.
