Advances in Inactive Materials and Electrode Technology
Electrode technology has a significant impact on cell cost, performance, life, and reliability. In this session, we will review inactive components that contribute to electrode integrity and performance, and recent advances in the coating technology that is utilized to manufacture electrodes.
Nobuaki Yoshioka, Executive Vice President,
NEC Energy Devices, Ltd.
Mr. Yoshioka joined NEC Corporation in 1981 and started developing lithium-ion batteries at NEC central research laboratory in 1999. He then joined NEC Lamilion Energy, Ltd. in 2002 and worked on the development of lithium-ion batteries for automotive applications. In 2007 Mr. Yoshioka joined Automotive Energy Supply Corporation, the cell, battery module and pack supplier for Nissan and Renault EV, as executive vice president. In 2011, Mr. Yoshioka returned to NEC to head business development activities at NEC Energy Devices, Ltd., a producer of electrodes for Li ion cells.
