#SusBat - Enabling Beyond Classical Li-ion Batteries through materials development and sustainability

Description of topical focus

The focus of this symposium is to explore the design and testing of sustainable battery systems, beyond classical Li-ion batteries, that can aid the energy transition by increasing the implementation of batteries in both mobile and grid energy storage applications. The goal is to cover the whole value chain, from the mechanistic understanding of charge transfer at electrified interface during battery cycling, the synthesis and development of novel electrolytes and redox active materials as well as addressing challenges related to recycling of materials as a necessary component of circular economy. This symposium aims to bring together experts from all around the world to exchange on the novel approaches towards a sustainable energy future.

List of conference topics
  • Earth abundant materials, including Na-, Ca-, Zn- and Mg-based, organic materials
  • Aqueous batteries
  • Electrolytes and interphases/interfaces for post-lithium energy storage
  • Metal-air Batteries
  • Novel methods for materials recycling, including but not limited to direct recycling
