The rapid growth of the lithium-ion battery has placed pressure on the traditional lead–acid battery to improve its performance. In understanding this challenge, it will be necessary to analyse the current issues with the lead–acid system, including those originating from the separator. This may lead to providing a packaged solution from advanced separator technology. Based on design innovation, structure improvement, process progress and quality consistency of separators, this presentation from Huakang lists its actions and contributions to the separator industry in stepping up to the challenge. Furthermore, attention will be paid to targeting research, testing, manufacturing, and application of separation technology to provide a forward-looking technical innovation plan and strategy. Huakang is promoting progress for a new generation of lead–acid batteries with support from its R&D team and following the CBI innovation roadmap. This work will ensure that the lead–acid battery will develop continuously in the face of competition from any new battery system.
