Ethylene Carbonate Free Electrolyte Extends Lifespan of High-Voltage Batteries

Researchers from Helmholtz Institute Münster and MEET Battery Research Center determine extended lifespan of lithium-ion batteries in the high-voltage range when ethylene carbonate is excluded.


The Helmholtz Institute Münster (HI MS) with the official designation “Ionics in Energy Storage” (IEK-12) was founded by the German research centre Forschungszentrum Jülich, the University of Münster (WWU), and RWTH Aachen University in 2014. It is a sub-institute of the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK) at Forschungszentrum Jülich.

The international and interdisciplinary team of HI MS explores new battery technologies based on innovative electrolytes.More
