WHY LITHIUM-ION CELL TECHNOLOGY STANDS AS THE MAJOR COMPETITOR TO GASOLINE ENGINES

Lithium is one of the first twenty elements found in the period table of elements in chemistry. The element has gradually become a major source of the modern environment-friendly energy campaign.

Lithium when combined with other metals in the making of dry cells, has been found to possess the most durable energy storage, longer time of energy discharge, operates without any liquid acid, and above all, the dry cells of lithium have lighter weight than others made with lead, nickel, and iron, etc.

Due to the numerous advantages of the lithium dry cells, different types of lithium-ion dry cells had been the backbone of all the electrically-powered rechargeable energy machines like the electric vehicles, robots, drones, cars, laptops, mobile phones, power banks, rechargeable fans, recharge lights, electric bikes, EHANG 184, electric airplanes, and electric helicopters, etc.

Based on the numerous application of the lithium-ion batteries, the element can be seen in combination with other chemical elements in the making of various types of batteries based on the intended use of the battery.

There had been various researches on how the new technology of dry cells could be improved to have good characteristics to be able to compete effectively with the gasoline engines. Though a lot of achievement had been made in that regard which was what brought about the lithium dry cells discovery, the researchers have not given up in their quest for more efficient, clean, reliable, durable and pollution-free energy source which the discovery of the lithium-ion cells has promised and it has also given hope to the researchers for the possible discovery of more element that could be superior to lithium in the making of dry cells.

With the level of improvement so far, recharge lithium cells had become effective enough to compete with gasoline engines. The making of various rechargeable electric vehicles and machines are gradually replacing, improving and about to dominate gasoline engines. The number of hybrid cars produced with the help of the lithium-ion batteries had been on the increase ever since it was discovered, above all; the technology had been improving on a daily basis.

It had been predicted that a few years from now, private cars and most commercial vehicles be powered by rechargeable dry cells which will eliminate the current internal combustion engines that use petrol and diesel as their fuel.

The elimination of the hydrocarbon products powered engines had been the utmost quest of the engineers due to the deteriorating effects they are causing to the ozone layer leading to the current world’s challenge of global warming.

If the quest is completed, the engineers and scientist may start the move of finding ways most electric power stations should use energies like the wind, water, or solar, etc. to power their plants instead of using gas, diesel, petrol or any other hydrocarbon products such as coal with the sole purpose of making the earth environmentally-free from carbon monoxide emissions pollution damaging the ozone layer.

With the known advantages of the rechargeable dry cells and the light weight and durability of energy supply that the lithium-ion cells technology offers, majority of Asian countries like China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea, etc. had been the major investors on how they would have many electric vehicles on their roads than anywhere else in the world.

The recent report released by first post's publication revealed that over 130 companies have shown interest in the Indian Space Agency’s Lithium-ion cell technology of which their pre-application process holds today.

The interest came as the agency made the announcement of their intention to transfer the Lithium-ion cell technology to the Indian industry on non-exclusive basis for the usage in automobiles for Rs 1 crore. It was gathered that less than one month of the announcement which was made in June, 130 companies have already purchased the RFQ document from the agency in preparation for the pre-application conference which holds today in India.

According to the agency, the intention of the transfer of technology is to accelerate the development of the indigenous electric vehicle industry. They are expected to produce cells of varying sizes, capacity, energy density, and power density which will cater for the entire spectrum of power storage requirements.

With the above development and other moves seen in the quest for electric vehicles, the future technology may actually center on the recharge batteries instead of gasoline engines.
