Argonne National Laboratory Key Developments

Argonne National Laboratory Appoints Jeffrey L. Binder as New Associate Laboratory Director for Energy and Global Security

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Argonne National Laboratory announced the appointment of Jeffrey L. Binder to the position of Associate Laboratory Director for Energy and Global Security (EGS). Binder joins Argonne from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he founded and served as the first director of the Illinois Applied Research Institute (ARI). At ARI, Binder focused on building relationships with federal agencies, private industry and other academic institutions for applied research efforts in support of the university's missions in science, education and economic development. Binder began his professional research career at Argonne in 1990, where he was a principal investigator before being promoted to group leader, then department head. Binder joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2003, working his way up to Associate Laboratory Director for Nuclear Science and Engineering in 2011.

A123 Systems, LLC Collaborates with Argonne National Laboratory on Cathode Development Program

A123 Systems LLC announced an agreement with Argonne National Laboratory to collaborate on a cathode development program that results in safe lithium-ion batteries with high energy densities and long lifetimes. With A123 playing the lead role, the two organizations will produce a safe class of advanced cathode materials for use in transportation applications that require substantial improvements in electric driving range. The three-year agreement between A123 Systems and Argonne National Laboratory will focus on improving the cathode safety without compromising cell energy density or battery life. A123 will leverage its scientific talent and successful track record in battery materials development to commercialize advances in nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) technology originally developed by Argonne. When combined with other independent R&D collaborations, A123 anticipates more than a 60% increase in energy density over its current high energy products and a corresponding increase in electric range for the vehicles it supplies.

alpha-En Corporation and Argonne National Laboratory Partner to Advance Commercialization of High Purity Lithium

alpha-En Corporation announced it has entered into a collaborative agreement with Argonne National Laboratory, of the U.S. Department of Energy, to optimize alpha-En's technology and further the Company's efforts to expedite commercialization. Argonne works closely with the country's leading private and public companies, universities, and government agencies to help them advance America's scientific leadership and prepare the nation for a better future. Argonne's Materials Engineering Research Facility specializes in working with manufacturers to advance processes, such as those used to scale up materials with higher yields that enable more efficient and economical production of next-generation technologies.
