PSI researchers make physical and chemical changes in batteries visible.
Researchers at PSI have taken a closer look at a previously disregarded factor in the formation of clouds. This could improve the accuracy of climate forecasting.
The electrification of transport is increasing. This means, more batteries are needed. However, some of these batteries contain an extremely problematic raw material: cobalt. PSI is researching alternatives.
Above all, meeting this goal will require sustainable fuels and a reduction in air traffic.
The ETH institutions are pooling their expertise in pursuit of the net-zero target.
