SafetyPublic TransportAlternatives


New battery technology should prevent the incidents that grounded Boeing 787 Dreamliners in 2013, claim researchers at the University of Michigan. The University said the innovation is an advanced barrier between the electrodes in a lithium-ion battery. Made with nanofibres extracted from Kevlar the barrier is said to stifle the growth of metal tendrils that can become unwanted pathways for electrical current. A U-M team of researchers also founded Ann Arbor-based Elegus Technologies to bring this research from the lab to market. Mass production is expected to begin in the fourth quarter 2016.
