MIT News reports, “An advanced manufacturing approach for lithium-ion batteries, developed by researchers at MIT and at a spinoff company called 24M, promises to significantly slash the cost of the most widely used type of rechargeable batteries while also improving their performance and making them easier to recycle.
“We’ve reinvented the process,” says Yet-Ming Chiang, the Kyocera Professor of Ceramics at MIT and a co-founder of 24M (and previously a co-founder of battery company A123).”

Planning to attend this year’s Materials Research Society Spring Meeting? See Eutectix at Booth 511 and let’s see what we can do together! Drop by the booth to meet Dr. John de Neufville. Visitors will have a special opportunity to guess the composition of one of our alloys and win a prize. We look forward to seeing you there.
