Daimler's Dr. Andreas Hintennach to Present on High Conductivity Electrolytes at AABC Asia

Lithium-Ion Battery Materials at AABC Asia
 will bring together leading battery chemists, engineers, and material R&D professionals from industry, government, and academia to discuss the current challenges and breakthroughs in battery chemistries. Case studies highlighting advancements in both electrode and electrolyte chemistry will be shared. In addition to improvements in Li-ion chemistries, the economic value of lithium technologies will also be discussed. You can expect to get an insightful view on the various lithium-ion chemistries and emerging beyond-and aside lithium-ion chemistries of the future, where lithium metal, lithium/sulfur, lithium/air, sodium, magnesium, and calcium chemistries will be in the focus of interest. In addition, an examination of the drivers of end user demand with a focus on major new projects in the pipeline and how that demand will evolve over the near and long term will be presented. The global markets will be covered from multiple angles, including advances in mining and processing with an emphasis on sourcing and cost control strategies by manufacturers with an outlook on the forecasted consumption trends for China, Japan, Korea, Europe, and the United States.

Andreas Hintennach, PhD, Professor, Group Research, Daimler AG
Novel and sustainable electroactive materials can help to decrease the ecological impact of novel battery concepts in the near future. While on the one hand, high energy density is required, the aspects of safety and lifetime get more important and often mean a challenge. All these requirements are met by very different approaches with different characteristics: all solid-state cells, high-energy materials, lithium-sulfur and even different systems, e.g. Na- or Mg-Ion.

Andreas Hintennach is a chemist and medical doctor. He received his PhD in electrochemistry from the ETH Zurich and Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland) in 2010. After a postdoc stay at MIT in the field of lithium-air and catalysis from 2010-11 he joined the group research department at Daimler AG. His present focus in the field of electrochemistry is fundamental research on next-generation electrical energy storage and conversion materials and systems, sustainability and toxicology.
