European Li-Ion Battery Advanced Manufacturing for Electric Vehicles

Objective

The global objective of the ELIBAMA project is to enhance and accelerate the creation of a strong European automotive battery industry structured around industrial companies already committed to mass production of Li-ion cells and batteries for EVs. Europe faces strong competition from Asia and the USA where more investments and production capacities for Li-ion batteries currently exist. The ELIBAMA project will exploit advanced eco-design methods of manufacturing battery cells in order to guarantee drastic gains in cost reduction and environment-friendliness across the value chain of the battery production. This will allow the production of competitively priced EVs while improving the overall safety and efficiency of the battery pack in use. Specifically, the project will focus on the development of eco-friendly processes for electrode production, electrolyte manufacturing, fast and homogenous electrolyte filling processes, cell design and assembly. Moreover, the project will develop new technologies that will allow to improve downstream quality and reduce the rate of defective products at the end of the manufacturing chain. Such technologies include introducing clean room manufacturing processes, online high resolution monitoring and inspection solutions and non-destructive testing processes for Li-ion cells. The recycling and refurbishing of end-of-life Li-ion batteries will be realized in three ways: (a) defining schemes for their safe take back and transportation, (b) developing diagnostic methods for the monitoring of used commercial batteries to assess their second life potential, and (c) defining best practices for the eco-design conception and easy dismantling of batteries in order to maximize their recycling potential. All these technical improvements will be closely monitored and validated from the environmental point of view by providing an integrated environmental assessment of the different technologies developed in the course of the ELIBAMA project.
