British manufacturers believe that the United Kingdom will be a major exporter of solid-state batteries that will pave the way for light and long-distance electric cars in a decade.

Johnson Matty, of FTSE 100 Chemicals, is one of seven companies that have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Glencore-powered battery-powered UK, Oxford University.

Many analysts are considered by many analysts to provide significant improvements to regional and charging time for electric vehicles. Almost all electric vehicles in production use variations on lithium ion batteries.

Johnson Matthell, chief technology officer at Mauritius Van Toll, said: “I am not afraid of one winner and one loser. There is space for many players and space for many applications that require electricity.

The company has been able to cover the “value chain” from goods to the final battery production. That US-backed Volkswagen will enable the US to compete with other big companies, such as Toyota and Quantum Spec.

“Speed ​​is the key,” he said. “If they have resources, they usually go very fast. You do not have any private company to develop any individual solution. ”

Gathered at the government-sponsored Faraday Institute, the UK is focused on bringing British academic battery research to market. The other partners in the corporation will be the UK Battery Industry Center, which provides equipment for advanced battery model manufacturing, manufacturing equipment company Emerson and Renwick and Warwick University.

Pam Thomas, CEO of Faraday Institute, said the “Special Union” is part of an effort to “market the findings of our research programs” to the UK’s economic value.

Attempts to prevent the recurrence of lithium ion batteries in the Sony Sony, invented by the University of Oxford in the 1970s, are part of an effort to revitalize the UK’s solid-state industry.

The automotive lithium ion battery industry is currently dominated by large Asian companies such as Japan’s Panasonic, China’s BYD and CATL and Korea’s LG and Samsung. Europe and the United States are trying to take over, and in the UK, Volvolt and Nissan are planning to build big batteries called gigfactories to serve British automotive plants.

Solid-state batteries improve the current technology by converting liquid electrolytes into lithium ions for solid ceramic materials. That can increase the power of the batteries and make them lighter and smaller. However, with some prototypes, companies have struggled to market a solid-state battery.

According to Allan Patson, chief engineer of the British Volt, which is building the plant in Blit in northeastern England, the use of strong electrolyte remains a holy grail for battery builders, providing up to 70% of the battery’s power. Product.

“There is still some value we can make from lithium ions, but that will only get us,” he said. “Solid conditions are the next natural attraction we need to drive forward. We need to put the UK in a competitive position with a homeowner and high performance solution. He described the British Academy of Battery Research as “absolutely world leader.”

Faraday Strong State Batteries expects 7% of the global consumer electronics market and 4% of electric car batteries in ten years.
