This report details the problems associated with the lithium-sulfur batteries and electrochemical data evolution.
This project aimed to developed commercial size lithium-sulfur batteries for large-scale electrical energy storage purposes. The initial design of the project aimed to understand the materials and cell behaviour with a subsequent goal to develop a conceptual design, fabrication and electrochemical data evaluation of commercial size lithium-sulfur batteries.
To make this project successful, our research team from UTS in collaboration with industry partners such as, DLG Power Battery and Korea Electrochemistry Research Institute (KERI) have assembled a pouch-type lithium-sulfur battery. We found these prototype lithium-sulfur batteries are superior to commercially available lithium-ion batteries regarding the materials cost, delivered capacity and energy densities. This commercial size lithium-sulfur battery is in its early stages of development and commercialization could be achieved in the near future with improved engineering science and techniques.
