Recent progress in anode materials for sodium-ion batteries is expected to accelerate the commercialization process


According to media reports, scientists from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) recently successfully developed a copper anode anode material for sodium-ion batteries. In the research and testing, the copper anode anode cycle performance is 1.5 times higher than that of the old material, and the manufacturing cost is expected to be reduced by 40%. The copper sulfide anode sodium-ion battery is expected to further reduce overall battery production costs and increase capacity, and allow sodium-ion batteries to move toward commercialization.


Compared with lithium batteries, sodium-ion batteries have the advantages of rich raw material reserves, lower costs, and better energy density and performance, and are an important development direction for future energy storage batteries. With the continuous promotion of sodium ion R&D technology, the commercialization of sodium-ion batteries is expected to accelerate, and companies with early deployment are expected to take the initiative in the field of new energy battery storage.
