TexPower in Austin, Texas, a spinout of the local university, is working on a process for cobalt-free battery cells for electric vehicles

1000 cycles better than NMC and NCA cells.

“Our goal is to use only abundant and affordable metals to replace cobalt while maintaining the performance and safety,” said researcher Wangda Li, “and to leverage industrial synthesis processes that are immediately scalable.”

“We are increasing the energy density and lowering the cost without sacrificing cycle life,” said Manthiram. “This means longer driving distances for electric vehicles and better battery life for laptops and cellphones.”
