New vehicle models from Hyundai and Toyota show promising signs of cleaning the air without giving off any harmful emissions. If this technology becomes the norm, then massive environmental change can finally kick into gear.
Aluminum and steel are traditional material choices for battery enclosures. Yet, composites could provide an improved alternative, which will significantly improve the performance of the EVs.
One of the most recent developments in the industry is the shift to LFP chemistry, a non-toxic, non-hazardous solution that allows for longer battery cycle life, increased reliability, and enhanced safety. We knew we had to create our own LFP option.
The move away from petrol, diesel and hybrid cars can seem like a shifting target. Despite deadlines for the ban on such vehicles varying by country, we can be sure that global change is happening — and soon.
The COVID-19 pandemic, upon initial lockdowns and social distancing orders, showed that fast change is possible with the right tools. While pollution drops haven’t lasted, a way forward is clear.
V2G or ‘vehicle to grid’ technology is not a new concept by any means, but it is nascent. Meaning, corporations are finally coming round to the idea of implementing it to more sensibly redistribute energy.
China, is looking to become a dominant player in the rising global ev market. Chinese EV manufacturers are expected to start expanding overseas, while Beijing already controls a large part of the global EV supply chain, beginning with critical minerals processing.

Hydrogen energy is versatile and can come from several sources. Due to this practicality, the world will likely go through an industry shift where hydrogen takes off.
With the ever-changing automotive industry, this year brings new political dynamics and global focuses. 2021 is going to be big for electric trucks of all kinds, but not due to any one reason in particular.
But nowhere has this change been as dramatic as the transport industry, with EV titans such as Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) and NIO Ltd. (NYSE:NIO) now commanding substantially higher valuations than their imposing ICE brethren, General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Ford Motors (NYSE:F).

Silicone hose manufacturer Venair has teamed up with Ballard Power Systems to help the marine industry implement fuel cell systems to decarbonise shipping. As part of a recent development project, Venair supplied Ballard with custom hoses to allow the transportation of hydrogen from the fuel tank to the fuel cell engine. The hoses had to be adapted to the location and position of the engine, the opening in multiple hoses for the engine inlets, the operating temperature, the specific pressure, pressure control, product control etc. In order to deliver the requirements, Venair worked together with Ballard to find the best solution and used its Vitosil product to meet the needs in the hydrogen passage. "For the conduction of any gas, an extremely low permeability hose is needed so that the gas does not pass through the hose wall and escape. In this case, we use our product Vitosil." Venair explained in a statement. "Our Vitosil product is composed of Fluorocarbon (FKM) inner layer. FKM inner layer presents a high chemical compatibility with the conducted products, as well as its extremely low permeability which allows the passage of gases without leakage loss through the material."
