Sulfur-Aluminium Battery with Advanced Polymeric Gel Electrolytes


List of possible Al alloys and inorganic electrolyte additives to prevent dendritic formation in the anode

Report on two different strategies to prevent the formation of dendrites in aluminum anodes by blocking the kink sites in aluminum surfaces, namely: i) Computational modeling of formation of near surface alloys (NSA) of Al with different elements. ii) Computational search of inorganic additives for the electrolyte that are prompt to block the kink sites.

Communication strategy

At the beginning of the project, a consortium-wide communication strategy will be created (D1.2, M6), being periodically updated along the project life

Reaction pathways and overpotential in the cathode

Report on the computation modelling of the formation of aluminum polysulfides during the charge and discharge of the battery, identifying the reaction pathways and the corresponding overpotentials

Launch of SALBAGE website, branding and logo

The project will set-up and maintain a dedicated website (D1.1, M2), acting as central information channel for the wider public and the project’s participants. The site will include a password-protected area for the partners and EC to obtain all necessary project data, reporting templates, etc

Data management plan

A research data management plan will be defined and periodically updated to ensure the control of SALBAGE data management policy. IPR management will be defined in the consortium agreement.
