På jagt efter nye batterier fra Kina
True Cousins har de seneste år arbejdet med at udvikle og bygge lynhurtige el-motorcykler og -biler. Til dette skal der bruges batterier og de fortæller i et blog-indlæg på ingeniøren om udfordringerne ved at købe batterier fra Kina.
Efter at have udvekslet over 150 mails og modtaget 5 vareprøver over 4 måneder med 2 leverandører, lykkedes det endelig at få vores leverance. Og jeg må sige, at vi har fået et vist indtryk af, hvordan kinesere arbejder og det er, ud fra hvad vi har erfaret, ikke videre imponerende…

Jon Fold von Bülow
Jon Fold von Bülow recieved his Cand. Scient. in Nanoscience from University of Copenhagen in 2011 and is currently working with upscaling Li- and Na-ion battery materials to the 100+ kg scale for Haldor Topsøe A/S.
Jon's main interest lies in energy technologies for the future and he started working with fusion energy at Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy. He has since developed a growing interest in technologies that are closer to potential industrial application. He is a highly dedicated academic as well as a very active professional and have initiated and participated in many different projects.
His studies within nanotechnological material science and affiliation with Risø National Laboratories has taken him to Germany, China and the US, where he has collaborated independently with several international research groups. He has so far succeeded in pushing two academic projects to industrial application, first with the Danish company Coloplast A/S and recently with a California-based battery start-up – an invention that is currently being US patented.
Jon has conducted most of his work on Li-batteries in the facilities of California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) as a research scholar at UCSB-MIT-Caltech Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies (ICB). The manganese based cathode materials he fabricated during this period were all tuned for high-power applications and covers synthesis of various manganese oxides from solution, molten and solid states.
