LITHIUM INNOVATION CENTER PROJECT

Applied R&D center for Li use in electric accumulators (Ion-Lithium batteries)

CIL
LITHIUM INOVATION CENTER- CIL

product from Chilean salars. is the choice windows to lead this Country iniciative. Universidad de Chile . Marubeni is a world-class trader company and a global inversor in new energy entrepeneurs in electric car industry. labs and scientifics groups to support applied science focused in some niches of solutions to expand the industrial business related to massive use of electric acumulators in electric cars and other huge scale applications (*) Initial academic team participating of Universidad de Chile. the 53% of worlwide Lithium and more 75% of Lithium used in batteries applications.Chile is the main Lithium productor in the world. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. using academic Chilean network(*).CIL . Energy Center of Engineer Faculty. Universidad de Santiago and Universidad de Antofagasta LITHIUM INNOVATION CENTER. Companies Soquimich (SQM) and Chemetall (SCL) .

SOCIOPOLITICAL FACTORS.The new energy paradigm industry Environment of CIL creation •PETROLEUM PRICES. ARE MARKING THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF ICE (INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE) BASE OF TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY. ENVIRONMENT CO2 PROBLEMS. AND GENERATING VALUE-ADDED PRODUCTS. • INDUSTRY ASSOCIATED WITH LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES FOR CARS WILL MOVE U. DECLINATION OF RESERVES. THE SAME BATTERY MARKET. ACCORDING TO RESEARCH FIRM FUJI-KEIZAI. •CIL FORMATION OBJETIVES IS TO CONTRIBUTE TO NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT.S. TRAINING OF NEW PROFESSIONALS AND SPECIALISTS.CIL . •IT IS NO COINCIDENCE THAT THE NUMBER OF APPLIED RESEARCH PROJECTS IN THE WORLD OF LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES. LITHIUM INNOVATION CENTER. HAS GROWN OVER 200% LAST YEAR. INCLUDING THE POSSIBILITY OF PRODUCING AN INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES IN CHILE. •BATTERY USED IN ELECTRIC CARS IS A NEW INDUSTRIAL AREA WITH HUGE POTENTIAL OF GROWTH IN NEXT YEARS. $ 25 BILLION BY 2014. •THE ACHILLES‘S HEEL OF THIS INDUSTRY IS TO RESOLVE THE CURRENTS PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED TO ION-LITHIUM BATTERY IN ORDER TO REACH THE MINIMAL INDUSTRIAL GOALS TO EXPANSION ON MARKET DEMAND. POTENTIAL OF THIS INDUSTRY IS IMPREDECTIBLE IN SAME WAY INTERNET WAS AT EARLY 90`S. THIS INDUSTRY INCLUDES THE VARIOUS COMPONENTS AND SOPHISTICATED TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH THE PRODUCTION OF THESE BATTERIES AND OF COURSE.

CIL .Electric Vehicles Industry Business US 200 billion/ year in 2015 DRIVER LIB Batteries Industry US 25 billion/ year in 2015 The hard balance and dependence US 1 billion/ year in 2015 Lithium Industry LITHIUM INOVATION CENTER.

 Security issues should be maintained under all mentioned requeriments LITHIUM INNOVATION CENTER.  Cycle Life (80% DOD) should be over 1.000 cycles.000 /kWh to less US$ Pack size should reach about 40 kWh (double currently) to expand range from 160 kms to 350 kms  Energy Density (Wh/kg) and Energy Volume (Wh/l) should be increase two times in order to support new size in current EV. considering new size requeriments. That mean battery should support over 400 amperes in charge process.The new energy paradigm industry ¡¡ URGENCE REQUEST OF DRIVERS (EV VENDORS )!! Main commercial problems to be resolved of LithiumBatteries for electric vehicles applications in next 5 years  Prices should be reduced from around US$ 300/kWh 1.  Recharge time in a Quick Charge equipment should be less of 15 minutes.CIL .

CIL . Materials costs in batteries is an important externality. Sizes reduction but more storage capacity.But… Commercial objetives Generate contradictory scientific and technical problems: Increase capacity v / s lower prices. Solution is a trade-off between many stages LITHIUM INOVATION CENTER. Increase charge speed but more life cycles.

CIL . technology and industry LITHIUM INOVATION CENTER.That mean a common objetives but many lines of work … A challenge to science.
