TANTECH HOLDINGS LTD. Opens New R&D Center in Lishui
LISHUI, China, June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Tantech Holdings Ltd. (TANH) opened its new R&D Center (the “Center”) on June 1, 2015 to further enhance the development of new capacitor batteries. The opening of the Center and the introduction of three distinguished researchers to lead the Center is a significant step in the continued development and utilization of Tantech’s EDLC carbon into capacitor batteries.
The primary focus of the new R&D Center will be on the development of new capacitor batteries that can function normally under extreme temperatures (-40 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius), and allow for fast recharging, slow deploying, safe operation and increased battery life. Applications for the new capacitor batteries include, but are not limited to: electric busses, electric garbage trucks, forklifts, airport shuttles, aircraft towing vehicles, automatic guided vehicles and energy storage power stations.
The new R&D team leaders are Chief Engineer, Mr. Yuxun Yang; Chief Scientist, Dr. Limin Wang; and Senior Consultant, Mr. Yaoming Wu. Mr. Yang is an expert with more than 20 years’ experience in the battery research and manufacturing industry. Mr. Yang has several achievements in the application of carbon film based materials and the research of square power batteries. Dr. Wang has been named one of the “100 Global Experts” by the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Additionally, Dr. Wang has engaged in the research of metallic material for over 20 years and is a widely known expert in the research of hydrogen storage alloys, storage battery and the development of entropy of hydrogen storage alloys used in high-capacity NiMH battery in wide temperature region. Mr. Wu has focused his research in rare earth hydrogen storage alloy materials for over 20 years. Mr. Wu also participated in several national high-tech R&D programs and other projects sponsored by the Chinese National Science Foundation and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Both Dr. Wang and Mr. Wu are prominent research associates at Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
