LLIBTA Symposium
Large Lithium Ion Battery Technology and Application
Tuesday, June 7 to Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Advanced Automotive Battery Conferences

AABC Europe 2011 – LLIBTA Symposium

Session 3:
Beyond Lithium Ion: High-Energy Electrochemical Storage Systems

Will increased interest in Lithium-metal battery chemistry--under development for 40 years now--result in commercial automotive batteries that will supersede Lithium-Ion technology? In this session, we will review Li-metal air chemistry and compare the challenges to those of automotive fuel-cell systems.

Mark Mathias, Director, Electrochemical Energy Research Laboratory, General Motors Research & Development


Dr. Mathias received his PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1987 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He then spent two years as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow including tenures at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland and the University of Marie and Pierre Curie in Paris, France. Dr. Mathias joined Mobil Research & Development Corporation in 1989 and moved to General Motors’ in 1998. The GM Laboratory has employees and facilities in Honeoye Falls, NY and Warren, MI, and it is responsible to develop fuel cell and battery technology needed to enable the broad commercialization of vehicle electrification technology.
