Urban Mining for Sustainable Materials and Energy Storage

Professor Zheng Chen

The development of next-generation energy-storage devices and systems relies on materials with significantly improved performance and lower cost. The objective of our research is not only to enhance energy storage performance (for example, energy capacity, power density, stability, safety) but also to reduce the cost of batteries. This talk will focus mainly on how to design energy-efficient recycling and the regeneration process for spent lithium ion batteries.

Instructor: Zheng Chen is an assistant professor in the NanoEngineering department and Materials Science Program at UC San Diego. He received his BS from Tianjin University and his PhD from UCLA, both in Chemical Engineering. He did his postdoc at Stanford University before joining UCSD. He is generally interested in materials for energy storage and conversion. Chen is one of the winners of the 2017 LG Chem Global Battery Innovation Contest.
