Innovative 3D electro-printing method to improve power, capacity and safety of lithium ion-batteries

Project description

Better batteries to power electric vehicles

Solutions for effective decarbonisation, transportation free from pollution and reduced dependence on oil resources are urgently needed. Electric vehicles (EVs) can be an excellent solution for a clean ecological transportation. A major issue with uptake is that lithium-ion batteries are not strong enough. The EU-funded Addionics project aims to support the development of new technology batteries using addionics technology to make these batteries last longer, thanks to the unique 3D electro-printing method. The new batteries will be safer, stronger and the charging time will be much shorter.


We are currently experiencing one of the most dynamic shifts in the history of modern transportation. With a continuous
decrease of oil resources, increase in number of cars and the growth of tail gas pollution, more and more countries began to
the importance of Electric Vehicles (EVs) by setting ambitious sales targets. EU transportation sector has committed to a
60% reduction in green-house gas emission by 2050. However, despite the growth of the EV market, the development in the
battery has been only incremental, without massive breakthroughs, since 1991 when Sony launched first commercial
Lithium-Ion batteries.
Addionics innovative technology and materials can create Li-ion batteries with higher capacity, power and energy density.
Using unique 3D electro-printing method, and easy manufacturing process, Addionics will enable longer EV battery life,
shorter charging time and higher safety.
