The German Reserach Centre in Julich launched a new division named "Basics of Electrochemistry". The division will develop ready to market Lithium air batteries... these batteries consist of eco-friendly, non-toxic components and have a life-circle of thousands of hours. Humidity and temperature up- and downturns can hardly affect them, but Lithium Ion batteries react to the infiltration of water and air humidity.
