A team of CINE members and a collaborator from Canada developed computational models that make it possible to carry out important studies to optimize the performance of sodium-ion batteries. With these simulations, the researchers were able to understand the transport mechanisms of sodium ions in ionic liquids, that can be used as electrolytes.



Fabio Coral Fonseca, principal investigator of the Methane to Products CINE´s division, is the leader of the technical team that participates at IPEN in the development of Nissan’s ethanol-powered electric car. The automaker and the institute have just renewed a partnership agreement to continue optimizing the solid oxide fuel cell used in the car. Know more.


The 15th International Conference on Chemical and Process Engineering (ICheaP 15). May 23 – 26, 2021. Online. Organized by Associazione Italiana di Ingegneria Chimica (AIDIC). Event website.


Doctoral student Jean Felipe Leal Silva (UNICAMP) presented in an oral session a work on computational modeling on the discharge process of a lithium-oxygen battery. The study showed the impact of the oxygen electrode catalytic activity on the battery performance during discharge. An article reporting the work was published in an indexed journal from AIDIC.
