Congratulations to the 2019 Nobel Prize Laureates!


The officers and members of NAATBatt International offer their heartiest congratulations to the three winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry: Prof. John B. Goodenough, Prof. Akira Yoshino, and the Chief Science Officer of NAATBatt International, Prof. M. Stanley Whittingham.  The 2019 prize recognizes Profs. Goodenough, Yoshino and Whittingham for their discovery and development of lithium-ion battery technology. This recognition is long overdue. The battery technology these gentlemen invented powers many of the devices that shape the modern world, from laptop computers to mobile phones, medical devices, industrial equipment and, increasingly, to vehicles and the electricity grid itself.  The world is [...]
