Materials for Energy Storage

Prof Riedel's research team has been working on the latest battery systems, lithium-ion as well as beyond lithium-ion battery since 2003. Novel SiOC- and SiCN-based polymer-derived ceramics for the next-generation electrochemical energy storage have been developed and investigated.

The focus is on innovative storage materials that can be used as electrodes in lithium-ion, sodium-ion and lithium-sulphur batteries as well as in supercapacitors. The main goal is to identify novel storage materials with potentially higher energy densities that are safe and can be produced at lower costs. The rapid charging and discharging over many cycles is one of the main focuses of this research.

PDCs for Ion-Battery-Strategy

Within Re2LiB project new strategies for the sustainable processing of Li-ion batteries at the end of their service life in electric vehicles will be developed.
