Innovator and alumnus Donald Sadoway (B.A.Sc.; M.A.Sc.; Ph.D.) seeks to establish the technologies required to make efficient use of energy and natural resources in an environmentally sound manner. His research led to the creation of sLimcell, an ultra-thin, light and portable battery that can store more energy than conventional lead-acid and lithium ion batteries. With his team, Dr. Sadoway also developed a grid-size battery made from affordable and widely available materials. His vision is to scale this battery to the capacity necessary to provide electricity storage to major electric utilities.
The John F. Elliott Professor of Materials Chemistry in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Dr. Sadoway is the author of 145 scientific papers and holds 18 U.S. patents. Founder of the battery company Ambri and the metals company Boston Electrometallurgical Corporation, he was included in TIME Magazine's 2012 list of the 100 Most Influential People. Dr. Sadoway was also elected to the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences and has won several teaching awards at MIT.
