Can Magnesium Do Lithium's Job?

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

Magnesium (Mg) has several advantages over lithium for battery applications. Each magnesium atom releases two electrons during the battery discharge phase, compared to one electron for lithium. This gives it the potential to deliver nearly twice the electrical energy than what is possible from a lithium cell. In addition, magnesium does not grow dendrites on the metal surface during the battery charging phase.

Associated Environmental Systems works with battery engineers to develop efficient test methods for battery research and production.
