A3 Global, a pioneering company at the forefront of mobility solutions, announced the continuation of its collaborative research partnership with Northeastern University through 2025. This endeavor is dedicated to enhancing the lifecycle of hybrid and electric vehicle (HEV and EV) batteries.
Additionally, A3 Global has announced its plan to sponsor cutting-edge battery research to be conducted in EXP, Northeastern’s new 350,000-square-foot state-of-the-art research center. EXP underscores Northeastern’s staunch commitment to fostering a globally networked ecosystem dedicated to research, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
“Acknowledging the cruciality of sustainable battery solutions, especially given the geopolitical intricacies and environmental implications of battery raw material sourcing, our collaboration with Northeastern aims to mitigate such challenges by focusing on battery reconditioning and remanufacturing. Professor Smotkin’s laboratory within the EXP building will be instrumental in accelerating these research efforts,” said Michael Cardone III, CEO of A3 Global.
At the heart of this partnership, the Smotkin Lab will receive support from A3 Global in the form of both funding and internship opportunities. The lab, under the direction of Professor Eugene S. Smotkin, will be a significant contributor to the research on clean energy materials.
Dr. Smotkin’s contributions to the field, especially in the innovation of operando spectroscopy, have been groundbreaking. Building upon this, the Northeastern-A3 Global synergy will further develop advanced scientific methods tailored for HEV and EV batteries, uncovering potential reversible battery failure modes.
“A3 Global’s dedication to fostering innovation and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the realm of sustainable mobility is truly commendable,” said Professor Smotkin. “This collaboration promises a future rich with sustainable transportation solutions.”
In aligning with its mission to be the global leader in hybrid and electric aftermarket transportation solutions, A3 Global is poised to harness this partnership to make significant advancements in sustainable transportation.
