In this project, ASTRI's competent technology in active material synthesis will be applied to develop Li-Mn-Ni-O based new cathode material that demonstrates a specific capacity of 180 mAh/g. The proposed cathode material contains minimal expensive element so that the cost of the cathode material is competitive in the market. Cathode preparation using industrial fabrication process would be optimized in order to match the cathode design. Subsequently, a full cell comprising the ASTRI lithium rich cathode and high capacity anode will be fabricated and evaluated to demonstrate the energy density can reach 620 mWh/cm3.
