International conference promoting new solutions for sustainable mobility is hosted by CBMM

Specialists from six countries discuss solutions for a new generation of electric batteries

SAO PAULO, Dec. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Big names from the global scientific community, industry representatives and technology developers will meet next Thursday, December 17, at the 2020 International Conference On Niobium Based Batteries, to showcase the most innovative and sustainable solutions in the electrification sector.

The event will bring the most advanced battery technologies to the center of the debate, such as the new developments with niobium, which can revolutionize the market of electric and hybrid vehicles. "We have entered into partnerships with companies and universities in Asia, Europe, US and Brazil for the development of new products that have synergy with Niobium, as is the case of graphene. This is a pioneering initiative in the world, which allows us to expand our business market", explains Rogério Ribas, Head of the CBMM Battery segment.

The advantages of electric batteries with niobium include: greater sustainability, due to a lower cobalt content, increased safety, because the metal prevents overheating; an ultra-fast recharge in less than six minutes, and also enhanced stability, with a life span of 15 to 20 years.

Conference participants include professionals from major global companies such as XTC, Easpring and Dameng, from China; Toshiba, from Japan; and the startup Echion Technologies, from Great Britain; in addition to specialists from renowned universities in the United States, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, China, and Brazil. Presented by CBMM, a global leader in Niobium products, the event can be followed in person or by a virtual platform.
