Advanced material solutions for safer and long-lasting high capacity Cobalt Free Batteries for stationary storage applications

Project description

Making Europe less dependent on raw materials

For decades, scientists have been exploring materials to produce a new generation of long-lasting batteries. The EU-funded CoFBAT project aims to develop novel batteries for energy storage that are cobalt free and in a modular format, rendering it suitable for different wide-ranging applications, be it domestic or industrial. New materials and components will be developed and optimised to achieve novel battery cells with longer lifetime, improved ciclability, lower costs, improved safety, lower environmental impact and more efficient recycling. The proposed solutions will allow Europe to become less dependent on raw materials for securing the supply chain, since CoFBAT gathers the whole value chain in battery production from materials to battery manufacturing, including electrochemical characterization and life cycle assessment. The feasibility, of a metal recovery process will also be deeply investigated and recommendations for future application made.
