EnerDel and Nissan are teaming on research for a new battery electrolyte. Nissan

A new conductive material is the focus of research under a joint project announced July 30 by lithium-ion battery maker EnerDel and automaker Nissan. The joint research for a new electrolyte will take place at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago. EnerDel and Argonne recently cooperated on the development of lithium-titanate battery chemistry. A subsidiary of Ener1, EnerDel recently cut the ribbon at its Indianapolis plant for what it describes as one of the most advanced battery production lines for large-format Li-ion cells. The facility is currently the only high-volume manufacturing facility for automotive Li-ion batteries in the U.S., according to the company.
