Dr. Vilas Pol leads $2M Office of Naval Research project on Li-ion battery safety

Fundamental Purdue research on making batteries safer has been targeted by the U.S. Office of Naval Research for translation into prototypes of larger batteries used in technologies such as submarines and naval missile systems. Davidson School of Chemical Engineering's Dr. Vilas Pol is the lead P.I. of the prototype development process, which is supported by a $2M grant for three years. The research is a team effort across Purdue Chemical Engineering, Aeronautics and Astronautics and Mechanical Engineering, as well as two research centers in Indiana: the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division and the Battery Innovation Center.
