Daikin targeting high-voltage Li-ion electrolytes with U.S. DOE grant

Daikin America recently received a $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop fluorinated electrolytes for high voltage Li-ion batteries. We spoke with Ron Hendershot, Director of R&D for Daikin America, who told us that Daikin will match some of the DOE contribution, brin...
