  • Major Breakthrough

    Game Changing Battery Material

    Researchers from the UK and US have made a major breakthrough in our understanding of a potentially game-changing battery material that could shake up the market for electric vehicles.

    Using a super-powerful electron microscope that can pinpoint single atoms a million times smaller than a human hair, researchers have now identified the structure of lithium-and manganese-rich transition metal oxides.

    These materials can potentially be used to make batteries with capacities double that of the most commonly used Lithium-ion batteries which, despite being important sources for energy storage for consumer electronics and transportation, have not caught up with the demand for the world’s energy consumption over the last couple of decades.

  • Creation of New Products

    Growth at Sci-Tech Daresbury

    The creation of new products and services is proving a catalyst for growth at Sci-Tech Daresbury, new figures reveal.

    According to a survey of Sci-Tech Daresbury business tenants, companies operating out of the Cheshire site developed a total of 134 new products and services during 2014, with 83% of these companies also generating sales in the market (up from 80% in 2013).

    The total number of new products and services has returned to historical levels and there has been a significant increase in the number of patents secured by campus businesses for their innovations during the last two years.
