- High nickel age of lithium ion battery is coming, the Lithium and Cobalt supply is critical
Itis said that after the year of 2019, lithium metal and cobalt supply iscritical, and lithium technology is moving forward to “811”.
INRmaterial is the best choice for power battery. The academic world has occurred variouskinds of lithium batteries since the popularization of lithium technology, butjudging from the practical application, graphite is always been chosen ascathode material, as for anode material, people mainly choose lithium cobaltoxide, lithium iron phosphate, INR, IMR, etc. Consider INR material has highenergy density advantage, before other technology breakthrough happens, INRwill still be the best choice for power battery.
Accordingto the report, even though there’s still a bottleneck for the popularization of highnickel INR material in the short term, it will be the mainstream in the longrun. INR material contains 111,523,622 and 811 ,etc according to the proportionof nickel and manganese, since the main function of nickel is to improve energydensity, the research for high nickel INR material such as 622, 811 is becominghot at present. The manufacturers in China are developing INR 622 and 811technology now, and have not started mass production in large scale yet, fromthe situation abroad, there’s only a few leading companies like Panasonic havehigh nickel INR production technology.
