TNO - The quest for the next-generation cobalt free battery
Most Lithium-ion batteries contain cobalt which has some major concerns regarding toxicity, environment, health, and a questionable or unethical supply chain. Batteries have been recognized as one of the main solutions to decarbonize transport. A battery-electric vehicle can produce 50% less CO2 emissions over its lifetime than an average EU oil or diesel vehicle today. The global market is expected to reach 125 million electric vehicles (EV) by 2030 with an increase in battery production capacity, for which Li-ion technology will likely remain the preferred choice for the next decade.
