Unlike traditional lithium-ion batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries do not use nickel, cobalt, or manganese, resulting in an estimated 60% smaller carbon footprint than current batteries. Lithium-sulfur is low cost and light weight, which doubles energy density over existing lithium-ion technology. The batteries are nontoxic and recyclable, and with no oxygen in the battery, the fire risk is practically nil.
