Good science but versus a lithium ion battery, saving is gained on replacing Li cation for Na cation, cost wise gain is minimal and as energy density is around half of a typical 18650 Li-Ion were is the gain ????
Not surprising, Umicore was not pushing hard on LFP especially for transportation market in their presentation vs metal oxide (NMC, ...). All big names are using NMC or NCA (Daimler, GM, VW, Renault, BMW, LG, Samsung, Tesla ...). http://www.umicore.com/img/uploads/irpresentations/135/2015CMD_EnergySurfaceTechnologies_RechargeableBatteryMaterials.pdf
Small company but they seem to have made an unbelievable deal with Litarion acquisition at no cost (1M euros cash but Evonik let around 7ME in bank to operate).
