XALT Energy’s Dr. John Camardese, research scientist for the R&D cell development team will deliver a seminar at the Detroit Section of The Electrochemical Society meeting on Thursday, March 22nd at Lawrence Technological University in Southfield.  His talk, titled Material Advancements for Lithium-Ion Batteries, the Hype versus Reality will explore several industry-changing technologies for lithium-ion batteries and their current status with respect to commercial cells like those manufactured at XALT Energy.  This seminar is open to the public, advanced registration by Friday, March 16th is required along with $20 for dinner.

Abstract: Many researchers at start-ups companies, academia, and in industry are focused on disruptive technologies for lithium-ion cells. While some materials have shown great promise for lithium-ion, complications to the manufacturing process, cost and limitations they place on cell usage have stalled some of these technologies. This seminar will discuss such disruptive technologies that have high promise for benefits to lithium-ion cells nearing or recently commercialized. The seminar will focus on the impact these technologies have on the cell development R&D, cell manufacturing, and system design.

About John Camardese: John earned his BSc in chemistry from Lawrence Technological University (Southfield, MI) and completed his PhD in chemistry at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) under the supervision of Jeff Dahn.  While at Dalhousie he focused on the synthesis of gradient and core-shelled, NMC materials for lithium-ion batteries. John is a contributor on at least 12 peer-reviewed papers and has given and contributed to talks at Electrochemical Society and Material Research Society meetings. He was also award the Young Investigator award at the 2014 International Meeting on Lithium Batteries in Lake Como, Italy.

About the Electrochemical Society: The Electrochemical Society is a professional association of scientific inquiry in the electrochemistry and solid-state science and technology field. The society has more than 8,000 scientists and engineers in over 70 countries worldwide.
