Development of mass production technology for LiBH4-based solid electrolytes

Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Co., Inc. (MGC), Tohoku University's Advanced Institute for Material Research (AIMR) and Institute for Materials Research have developed mass production technology for LiBH4-based solid electrolytes.

These electrolytes are created based on technology developed by Tohoku University, and are suitable as they are flexible and can adhere well to the electrode layer.

There are 2 types of these electrolytes: LiBH4-LiI solid solution and LiBH4-LiNH2 based solid electrolyte. MGC will start supplying the sample of these electrolytes.

For more information on these LiBH4-based solid electrolytes, join MGC at the following conferences.
