There are rising environmental, humanitarian, and supply chain concerns regarding the production of the seriously mineral-intensive Lithium-ion battery technology. This is a call for supporting battery technologies.
I make Lithium-Sulfur batteries with no risk of supply disruption and considerably less CO2 footprint. The greener and more sustainable Li-S battery also promises to be safer, cheaper, and lighter than Li-ion. The current focus of my research is to boost the lifespan of Li-S batteries.
