For the past 30 years, lithium-ion batteries have gone from being something you used in remotes and clocks to what is probably the most important energy storage method out there. But, despite that long service, the technology hasn’t been without its flaws.
From incredible safety risks, environmental damage, and just lackluster efficiency and energy density, I think it’s fair to say that the world could really use a battery upgrade.
But while hundreds of researchers and start-ups have been trying to find an answer to the lithium-ion problem, one startup from the UK might have found the answer by moving one letter down on the periodic table.
That’s right people, today we will be talking about Faradion and their revolutionary sodium-ion battery and how if it turns out to be successful, it could potentially change the way we view electronics in general.
One of the first things that we learned in high school chemistry is how some chemicals have weirdly similar properties to chemicals that are placed near them in the periodic table.
And seeing as Sodium and Lithium are one of the biggest and clearest examples of that, it shouldn’t be hard to see why researchers have been trying for years to find a way to use Sodium instead of Lithium in batteries.
But that still doesn’t answer the question of “Why?” or more specifically, why sodium?
Well, who better to answer that question than the CEO of Faradion himself, James Quinn, who when talking to Bloomberg about the potential of Sodium cells explained the usefulness of sodium metal by saying:
Sodium is the sixth-most-abundant element on earth, it’s essentially unlimited, and it’s sustainable. You harvest it — you don’t mine it so much.
And that alone should be the answer to your question. You see, metals like Lithium and Cobalt, which are used in modern batteries can only be found in a usable form in very rare mines, mines that are frequently facing delays and price hikes.
All of this has made it increasingly clear that if we want to build enough batteries to run all of the world’s technology on them, we are going to require something other than Lithium.
