Monash researchers created a longer-lasting, lighter, more sustainable rival to lithium-ion batteries using sugar in lithium-sulfur batteries Enserv Australia hopes to develop and manufacture the batteries in Australia, the world’s largest producer of lithium.The company’s MD, Mark Gustowski, said they plan to make the first lithium-sulfur batteries in Australia using local lithium within five years. […] The Monash team, supported CSIRO, reported in the journal Nature Communications that they have managed to stabilise lithium-sulfur battery technology, long touted as the basis for the next generation of batteries, by using a glucose-based additive on the positive electrode.
