Lithium-sulfur technology to power electric cars
The limited performance of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries represents an obstacle to the adoption of electrified vehicles (EVs). Lithium-sulfur (LiS) batteries are free of critical raw materials and have potential for high energy density and reduced cost. The EU-funded LISA project advances the development of high-energy and safe LiS cells with hybrid solid state and non-flammable electrolytes. The technology is validated at the 20 Ah cell level according to EUCAR industrial standards. The project will resolve specific LiS problems on metallic lithium protection, power rate, volumetric energy density and costs, all of which are essential selection criteria for EV cells. Assessment of the sustainability of the technology will be done with regard to environmental and economic aspects. LISA will integrate manufacturability concepts that will allow integration in future production lines.
