Objective

ILLIBATT aims to develop safer and better performing Li batteries that make use of solid-state electrolytes, containing non-volatile and thermally stable ionic liquids, new nanostructured anodes and advanced cathodes. These newly developed materials are expected to be useful in a wide range of different cell sizes: from small, e.g. micro-batteries, to large, e.g. delocalised storage units (10-20kWh).

ILLIBATT has 4 key objectives:
(i) development of a green and safe solid-state electrolyte chemistry bas ed on ionic liquids and unique ionic liquid based composites;
(ii) use of novel nano-structured high capacity anodes, prepared with the help of novel ionic liquids;
(iii) investigation of electrolyte properties and the specific interactions of these electrolytes with advanced commercial and self-prepared electrode materials with the goal to understand and improve the electrode and electrolyte properties and thus their interactions; and
(iv) construction of rechargeable lithium cells with optimised elect rode and electrolyte components.

Accordingly, ILLIBATT aims to overcome the well-known technical problems of the present rechargeable lithium battery technology with the goal to:
1- perform breakthrough work to position Europe as a leader in the developing field of high energy and environmentally benign and safe batteries and to maintain the leadership in the field of Ionic Liquids;
2- develop appropriate solid electrolytes and nanostructured electrode materials which combination allows to realize true solid state lithium batteries;
3- develop all-solid-state prototype batteries operating at room temperature with (4-6):
4- specific energy higher than 180Wh/kg with respect to the overall weight of the prototype;
5- coulombic efficiency in average higher than 99% during cycling;
6- cycle life of 1,000 cycles with 40% maximum loss of capacity, cycling between 100% and 0% SOC;
7- evaluate their integration in renewable energy systems
