Electric cars are cheaper and safer. The Poles developed a unique battery without fluoride and expensive metals

Leszek Nedzeki from the Department of Chemicals at Warsaw University of Technology spoke about the details of this achievement in an interview with the service representative magazine. He noted that the team’s work on next-generation batteries is constantly progressing, and the achievement of fluoride elimination is unique on a global scale…but still on a laboratory scale. Simply getting rid of this item on the go makes batteries more likely to be recycled and safer in the event of a failure, especially fires.

In addition, the disposal of expensive rare earths is a gateway to the production of cheaper batteries without the need to import rare materials from other countries (including Russia, Canada and Congo). This in itself is very important, as it makes a production line possible independent of largely limited sources of raw materials and, above all, promises high reductions in final price per kWh. Especially since these batteries can be safely and relatively easily recycled, recovering and reusing a large part of the materials.

More importantly, “when it comes to capacity, charging speed, and obtainable current/power, the Polish scientists’ batteries are not significantly different from those on the market, which initially bodes well.” The team’s current goal was not to revolutionize the Same capabilities as batteries, but change the raw materials used for cheaper and safer materials.

To demonstrate the potential of these batteries, scientists have already created more than a hundred experimental small cells and are on their way to international collaboration, mass testing, and even potential commercialization.
