3D Printing: Environmentally Friendly
I am concerned about writing anything related to Lithium. So I did research about it. I found out some favorable research about Lithium.
Please do the judgment for our reader’s.
According to Battery University, “Because of the inherent instability of lithium metal, research shifted to a non-metallic lithium battery using lithium ions. Although slightly lower in energy density, the lithium-ion system is safe, providing certain precautions are met when charging and discharging. Today, lithium-ion is one of the most successful and safe battery chemistries available. Two billion cells are produced every year”.
At the same time, according to Physics researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University,” they also found that the electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries (also known as Li-ion batteries) could be replaced with halogen-free electrolytes that are both nontoxic and environmentally friendly”.
According to Engadget,” A 3D printed li-ion battery is one of the challenges in creating smaller and smaller devices these days, such as wearables and phones, is that the batteries can take up a lot of room. Cases are often designed around standard battery sizes, and it often creates wasted space. Now, new research published in ACS Applied Energy Materials shows that it’s possible to 3D-print lithium-ion batteries into whatever shape you need”.
