ASU startup receives funding to advance fire-safe battery research
Safe-Li, a startup venture arising from the work of Fulton Schools Professor Jerry Lin, has been accepted into the Shell Global companies’ Shell GameChanger Program that helps startup businesses ventures with early-stage ideas to potentially impact the future of energy. The program will support Safe-Li through a grant to further Lin’s research on fire-safe lithium-ion and lithium-metal battery technology. Lin, a chemical engineer, the inventor of the technologies and Safe-Li’s chief scientist, developed the patent-pending technology that is expected to not only make lithium batteries safer but also revolutionize the battery industry. Lin says the technology can be used to make lithium-metal batteries with higher energy density, which can then lead to the development of long-range batteries for electrical vehicles.
