Join the ECS Detroit Section for Dr. Gong Liang Li’s presentation, “Innovative materials and electrochemical technologies in solid oxide fuel cell, solid state battery, and other electrochemical devices,” on November 14, 2023.
Niterra, the world’s leading ignition and sensor specialist, is a company with its eyes set firmly on the future. By leveraging its expertise in ceramics, the company is placing itself at the forefront of future mobility, energy and environment, and medical device development. Niterra has pursued research and development on LLZO oxide-based ceramic electrolyte battery technology with a focus on providing a wider operating temperature range and higher safety. The choice of oxide eliminates the risk of combustion or hazardous gas leakage. At the same time, Niterra has been developing a unique capability of non-sintering the oxide-based electrolytes, instead of the common practice of sintering. Niterra will be able to provide LLZO powder and composite film materials for current and future battery manufacturing. Morimura SOFC is a majority-owned subsidiary of the Niterra Group. Recently, the company successfully began the commercialization of an SOFC system for residential and industry application. SOFC is an electrochemical conversion technology that produces electricity directly from oxidizing a fuel. Morimura SOFC’s SOFC system has the highest energy efficiency and plays a greater role in reducing carbon emissions.
Students are encouraged to present posters. The event will showcase up to three posters. The first three students to contact event organizers via email@example.com about presenting their work receive $100 and one year of free access to ECS Detroit Section events.
