An electric car is considered as the most promising technical solution for automotive industries in 21st century since the use of electric energy not only slows down the petrol consumption but also contribute to reduce the CO2 emission and toxic air pollutants.

Due to its good performance, Li-air batteries have attracted worldwide attentions as an ideal alternative, because their outstanding energy density is extremely high compared to other rechargeable batteries.

In this project, a multidisciplinary work team in materials synthesis and characterization, cell assembly and test will cooperate to perform a joint research to deliver a Li-air battery cell for EVs with high capacity and long cycle life in laboratory scale.

The main objective of this project focuses on innovations of battery anode, cathode, electrolyte materials and technologies, as well as an assembly of batteries cells which are crucial on battery performance, cost and environmental impact.
