Description:
The ECS Detroit Section welcomes Stephen Burkhardt, Chief Technology Officer at Conamix to present “Building an EV Spec Li-S Battery from the Ground Up.“  
 
Abstract
Lithium-Sulfur (Li-S) batteries have been the subject of R&D for over 50 years with relatively few successes in the marketplace. However, in the last ~10years there has been a resurgence of interest due to the promise of extremely low-cost and high-performance energy storage, and the potential to benefit from the ongoing “renaissance” in Li-metal anode technologies. Li-S also avoids many issues related to scale and supply chain when compared to nascent technologies. Despite these advantages, R&D has lagged and performance still falls short of power and cycle life required for mass market adoption in electromobility applications. Li-S technology will be presented holistically starting with fundamental chemistry through cell design and engineering. The presentation will close with discussion on recent approaches to mitigating the hurdles of Li-S as well as Conamix’s technology perspective and portfolio for driving Li-S performance while keeping the focus on low-cost and scalability.
