Silicon is the most promising electrode material for next-generation lithium-ion batteries

Wholesale gas prices in the Netherlands and the UK have risen 20 percent recently amid concerns about Russian supplies.

The EU plans to cut its dependence on Russian gas by two-thirds this year and stop importing Russian fossil fuels by 2027. Russia exported about 155 billion cubic meters of gas to the EU in 2021.

The US recently said it would try to supply 15bn cubic meters of LNG to the EU this year. U.S. LNG plants are running at full capacity, and analysts say much of the extra gas the U.S. sends to Europe comes from what should have been exported elsewhere.

The German government called Russia "an unreliable energy supplier". Even though the German government claimed that they have been preparing for the situation for a long time that Russia may stop sending gas one day, experts say it is hard for the EU to replace all of Russia's gas exports any time soon.

The supply and prices of many Nano silicon anode material silicon powder will continue to be influenced by international situations.


Overview of nano silicon anode material silicon powder

Silicon is the most promising electrode material for next-generation lithium-ion batteries, with a specific capacity (3600 mAh/g) about 10 times higher than graphite (372 mAh/g). However, due to the significant expansion (over 300%) of the material under load (lithiation) and the instability of the solid electrolyte interface layer (SEI), its use is severely restricted. The poor mechanical stability and chemical passivation performance of silicon electrodes make the cycle performance of silicon electrodes far unable to meet the requirements of battery systems, and a lot of research and suggestions have been stimulated to circumvent these limitations.

During the lithium insertion process, the volume of silicon changes so much (about 400%) that the silicon cracks and falls off the collector, causing the prototype lithium-silicon battery to lose most of its capacity in less than 10 charge and discharge cycles. The key to the success of large-capacity lithium-ion batteries is to solve the capacity and stability problems of lithium-ion silicon.

Silicon anode materials have shown great potential in improving the efficiency and energy storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries. Until recently, their main disadvantage was surface passivation through oxidation, a process that increases impedance and reduces anode circularity. Our high-purity silicon anode materials can achieve high specific capacity without significantly affecting cycle life.

Nano silicon anode material silicon powder application

Silicon is the most promising anode material in the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. Nano silicon anode materials are used in cylindrical, flexible and aluminum shell batteries. Our silicon anode powder can be dispersed in the battery solvent while preventing agglomeration. They are designed to bond seamlessly with other battery materials and produce uniform and stable coatings. Therefore, they are suitable for a range of applications, including lithium-ion batteries, photovoltaics, semiconductors, and electronics.

The Nano silicon anode material silicon powder industry has experienced demand expectations driven by the rise and the off-season tired stock driven by the seasonal decline in two rounds of the market. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic and other factors, inventories of manufacturers continue to accumulate, putting pressure on market sentiment. In addition to off-season factors, the weak trend of Nano silicon anode material silicon powder also reflects the market's concern about the epidemic and some other related enterprises' financial situation.
