Taking Charge - Solvay powers the future of batteries
As modern technology becomes ever more complex, we expect our batteries to keep pace with our increasing need for mobile energy. We want batteries that are environmentally friendly, provide more power from a smaller package, charge faster, and last longer. Developing innovative materials for batteries which will meet these challenges is the job of my team here at Solvay.
