Title : Update of Life Cycle Analysis of Lithium-ion Batteries in the GREET Model
Publication Date : September 30, 2017
Authors : Q. Dai, J. Dunn, J. Kelly, A. Elgowainy
Abstract : This memo documents updates for life cycle analysis of lithium-ion batteries (LIB) in the GREET model. These updates were obtained through 1) our site visits to two LIB manufacturing facilities and one LIB recycling facility in China; 2) Argonne’s latest modeling effort by Ahmed et al to support efficient simulation, analysis, and design of advanced LIB technologies. These updates therefore reflect the current status of lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) cathode material production and LIB manufacturing, and will be incorporated into GREET 2017.
