Battery-powered vehicles to be revolutionized by Universite de Montreal technology
"It's a revolutionary battery because it is made from non-toxic materials abundant in the Earth's crust. Plus, it's not expensive,'" says Michel Gauthier, an invited professor at the Université de Montréal Department of Chemistry and co-founder of Phostech Lithium, the company that makes the battery material. "This [LiFePO4] battery could eventually make the electric car very profitable."...
