Thailand Science Park, Pathum Thani
Dr.Sumittra Charojrochkul (Executive Director), Dr.Pimpa Limthongkul (Director of Energy Innovation Research Group), and Dr.Lily Eurwilaichitr (Assistant Executive Director) from National Energy Technology Center (ENTEC) welcomed Dr.Yue Jun Jiang (Chief Technical Officer of Charoen Pokphand Group and Advisor to ENTEC Board of Directors), Mr.Aaron Ling (Head of AI and Data, Charoen Pokphand Group) and delegates to the 18th NSTDA Annual Conference (NAC2023).
At ENTEC exhibitions, Dr.Sumittra and Dr.Pimpa showed key research outputs including standardised swappable battery module (designed to fit and perform across multiple manufacturers and models of electric motorcycles, with considerations for ease of operation, value for money, infrastructure requirement as well as end-of-life management) and swapping station for electric motorcycles, development of battery materials with advanced properties (e.g. electrolytes with enhanced safety, electrolyte for solid-state batteries, as well as biomass-derived carbon for uses in lithium batteries, sodium batteries and supercapacitors), and recycling of materials from degraded lithium-ion batteries.
