Project Detail

Alignment with the Industrial Strategy Challenge Funds This proposal aims to advance fundamental knowledge within the development low cost anodes for Na-ion batteries in order to accelerate the commercialisation of Na-ion batteries in the UK. Our proposed research clearly aligns with the Industrial Strategy Challenge Funds objectives and aims as following: ELECTRONIBs will closely collaborate with major industrial battery developers in the UK (Johnson Matthey and Faradion). Having them closely involved within our research will enable us to further apply jointly for various industrial funds in the future (for example via Innovate UK or the future Faraday Institute) to facilitate collaborations with other major industrial and academic battery developers in the UK. This will in turn increase the UK businesses investment in R&D and improved R&D capability and capacity. ELECTRONIBS is a highly interdisciplinary research involving materials synthesis, electrochemistry, advanced characterisation and modelling and academics with complementary expertise. We will work closely with many EU and international experts from Germany, China, Sweden and Japan and we will involve UK and International industries. Therefore, we are likely to have an important academic and industrial impact not only at national level but also internationally leading to an increased multi- and interdisciplinary research around the very challenging area of low cost energy storage. Having directly involved in our proposal several UK and international companies working in the challenging are of batteries and energy storage will likely lead to an increased business-academic engagement on innovation activities in the field of Na-ion batteries. Key results will be discussed directly with industry, with a view to applying for Innovate UK funding to develop products based on shared expertise - our knowledge and understanding of the materials and how to synthesize/process them; industrys knowledge of product development, from initial prototype to market-ready devices, as well as their keen business acumen and market knowledge needed to successfully take a product to market. ELECTRONIBS has partners ranging from well established companies like JM to smaller SMES working in the field of Energy Storage like Faradion as well as companies producing low cost carbon materials such as AVA CO2. We have collaborative links with Toyota Central Research and Development Laboratories, the pioneering hybrid motor vehicle company that has a truly international influence. We also have Chinese Academy of Science via the Institute of Physics involved which have now their own spin off in producing Na-ion batteries. This will likely lead to increased collaboration between younger, smaller companies and larger, more established companies up the value chain in the UK and internationally. Our international collaborations will likely increase overseas investment in R&D in the UK. Due to their outstanding energy and power density, lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have become the technology of choice for todays electrical energy storage. However, LIBs are not suitable for stationary energy storage because of their high costs and increasingly higher strain on lithium resources. Therefore there is a strong need to increase the diversity of energy storage solutions for energy security considerations. Sodium-ion batteries (SIBs) started to receive significantly more attention as low cost and affordable alternative to LIBs. This grant will explore new lost cost anodes based on available precursors with the aim to increase the SIB performance and facilitate their comercialisation. We will develop fundamental insights into the mechanisms of sodium ion storage, diffusion and intercalation in our designed electrodes by employing complex characterisation techniques and molecular simulations during battery operation.

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Inorganic Chemistry for Future Manufacturing (OxICFM)
Company Name University of Oxford

Project Value 6 Million
Project Detail

The OxICFM CDT, centred in Oxford Universitys Department of Chemistry, and involving eight key industrial stakeholders, two STFC national facilities, and faculty from Oxford Materials, Physics and Engineering seeks to address a UK-wide need for the training of doctoral scientists in the synthesis of inorganic materials relevant to the future prosperity of the manufacturing sector. Chemical synthesis is a key enabling scientific discipline that allows humanity to maintain and improve its quality of life. Within the UK, the EPSRCs own data show that the chemical/chemistry-using sectors contributed a total of £258B in value-added in 2007 (21% of UK GDP), and supported over 6 million UK jobs. Manufacturing processes and future materials are highlighted as key technologies in the recent UK Industrial Strategy green paper, and the long-term skills demand for scientists to develop new materials and nanotechnology was highlighted in the UK Governments 2013 Foresight report. The EPSRCs prioritisation in the area is highlighted by (among other things) the recent Future Manufacturing Hubs call. Future advances in societally critical areas such as petrochemical utilisation, battery technologies, semiconductors, smart materials, catalysts for chemical manufacturing, carbon capture, solar conversion and water supply/agro-chemicals are all underpinned by the ability to design and make chemical compounds and materials - to order - with custom designed properties. As an example, many technological developments in the last 30 years would not have been possible without Goodenoughs fundamental work (carried out in Oxford) leading to the development of cathode materials for rechargeable lithium batteries - and ultimately to a $30B global industry currently growing at 10% per annum. We will exploit the uniquely broad range of excellence, innovation and multi-disciplinarity offered at Oxford by a critical mass of world-class researchers in this area (40+ faculty), to deliver a rigrous, challenging and relevant CDT programme in what is an under-represented area of graduate training. We believe that such a programme is not only timely and complementary to existing EPSRC CDT provision, but will address the national need for resilience, growth and innovation in key manufacturing sectors. The art and craft of inorganic synthesis as applied to manufacturing is necessarily extremely diverse. OxICFM will exploit a cohort model allied to training incorporating faculty-, industry- and peer-led components, to deliver scientists (i) with a broad spectrum training across the interface between inorganic synthesis and manufacturing, and (ii) with in-depth expertise in one specific stream (molecular, nano-scale or extended materials). This model is driven by a strong end-user pull, including a desire expressed on numerous occasions by industrial partners, to recruit doctoral graduates who not only have depth of expertise in one area, but who can also apply themselves to a broad spectrum of inter-disciplinary challenges in manufacturing related synthesis with greater effectiveness than standard doctoral graduates. As expressed by our SME partners and highlighted in Econics letter of support: (we do) not need lots more chemistry (post)graduates, we needed better prepared ones who could understand and adapt to working in industry more readily. I see a clear connection with the CDT intent and our own, and other scaling chemical businesses, needs. With this clear vision in mind, a central component of our approach is the integration of industry-led training from both larger partner companies and SMEs in order to promote a holistic understanding of cross-scale issues relating to different business models. We stress that our aim is not to add significantly to total post-graduate numbers in Oxford Chemistry, but rather to provide a different training package to those currently available.

Improving energy management is vitaI for the future. It implies greener production ways and smarter conversion and storage devices. For the latter, lithium batteries (LiB) have flooded the market of electronic devices and are now also powering electric vehicles and stationary storage plants. The huge energy storage-demand involves an explosion of the battery production, which will face in the future the problem of limited resources, unlocated in Europe. Therefore, it is important to investigate alternative batteries. Recent years have seen the emergence of post-LiB, like sodium-, magnesium- or calcium technologies. The last one is very promising in terms of theoretical energy density, safety, and sustainability. However, the lack of reliable electrolytes so far impedes the practical research on rechargeable calcium batteries, CaB. In this proposal VIDICAT aims at developing a new material concept based on nanocomposite ionomers acting both as liquid-free electrolyte and electrode binders. Such approach will provide at the interface with calcium, highly chemically, electrochemically and thermally stable polymer electrolytes. Due to outstanding mechanical performance, very thin electrolytes (1 µm) are targeted, with cationic conductance close to standard lithium ones. In the frame of developing this ground-breaking electrolyte concept, VIDICAT will also search for positive electrodes with the final challenging purpose of proposing reliable and safe CaB. Innovation is omnipresent as the targeted negative and positive electrodes have never been evaluated with liquid-free ionomers as electrolyte and binder. Nonetheless, VIDICAT objective is the achieving of a CaB prototype reaching energy density similar to State of Art LiB. Multidisciplinary, VIDICAT will increase EU capacity building in low-carbon energy. Based on sustainable ores, VIDICAT will prevent the loss of non-renewable chemicals and paves the way for Europe energetic independence.

Li-ion batteries are still the limiting factor for mass scale adoption of electrified vehicles and there is a need for new batteries that enable EVs with higher driving range, higher safety and faster charging at lower cost. LiS is a promising alternative to Li-ion free of critical raw material (CRM) and non-limited in capacity and energy by material of intercalation. LISA proposes the development of high energy and safe LiS battery cells with hybrid solid state non-flammable electrolytes validated at 20Ah cell level according to EUCAR industrial standards for automotive integration. LISA will solve specific LiS bottlenecks on metallic lithium protection, power rate, and volumetric energy density; together with cost the main selection criteria for EV batteries. The sustainability of the technology will be assessed from an environmental and economic perspective. The technology will be delivered ready for use within the corresponding state of charge estimator facilitating battery pack integration. Today, LiS is twice lighter than Li-ion and has reached only 10% of the sulphur theoretical energy density (2600Wh/kg) at cell prototype level (250-300Wh/kg), with potentially 800Wh/l (600Wh/kg) achievable by improving materials, components and manufacturing. LISA is strongly oriented to the development of lithium metal protection and solid state electrolyte; and will incorporate manufacturability concepts enabling integration in future manufacturing lines. Moreover, the outcome of the project in terms of new materials, components, cells, and manufacturability will be transferable to other lithium-anode based technologies such as Li-ion and solid state lithium technologies. As such, LISA will have a large impact on existing and next-generation EV batteries, delivering technology with higher energy density beyond the theoretical capacities of chemistries using CRM – i.e. natural graphite and cobalt - or silicon-based chemistries inherently limited by their manufacturability.

The share of renewable energies such as wind and solar energy, which is fed into the electricity grids, is constantly increasing worldwide. This type of energy is highly volatile, and depending on the time of day and the weather they supply different amounts of energy. This causes two problems: 1. the energy grids are being burdened more and more - the blackout danger is growing! 2. The electricity is not available as required. That is why we need a highly flexible system in the future to compensate these fluctuations, to be able to guarantee a secure energy network and the provision of electricity on demand. Technologically, battery storages can provide this flexibility, but the price/performance ratio is still the biggest obstacle for a full market penetration. HiVOLT describes a newly developed battery system based on high-voltage technology, which offers significant cost and efficiency advantages compared to conventional systems. Savings are achieved, among other things, by eliminating transformers and reducing system costs through lower currents. The impact of the technology is outstanding and has the potential to revolutionize the storage market. This is reflected in the outstanding economic efficiency of the high-voltage lithium storage. It is at least 33% higher compared to TESLA, BYD, E3DC and results from the following factors: Higher number of charge cycles (8,000), max. depth of discharge, higher energy efficiency (92%), low investment costs (570 €/kWh) and low system costs (50% reduction). In SME Phase 2, the product is to be made ready for series. Serial production and commercialization are to be carried out. Commercial enterprises in i.a. Europe, East Asia and USA are to be reached (market size: 1.1 bn €). The high-voltage lithium storage (TRL7) was developed by TESVOLT GmbH. The global challenge of establishing renewable energies as the main pillar of energy supply can only be met with intelligent energy storages. TESVOLT -The energy storage experts.

Project Detail

With industrial and societal demands for lighter, thinner and higher capacity batteries, there has been a lot of ongoing research for novel electrode materials with improved properties. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have shown enormous potential as Lithium-Ion Battery (LIB) electrode materials as they improve LIB power capacity by a factor of >10 and charge acceptance by >200%, reducing energy loses by >15%. However, the extensive use of CNT-based LIBs is being harboured by the lack of an industrially applicable process for dispersing CNTs on electrodes. CNTs aggregate in their formation and current dispersion methods fail to effectively unbundle the, and as such, excessive amounts of CNT are required to achieve homogeneity, which often deteriorates the intrinsic properties of CNTs, degrades electrode properties and lowers battery performance. Additionally, the CNT load increase rises the overall electrode production cost (the average cost of CNT varies from €75-€400/gram). CENS has develop a cost-effective gas-based CNT dispersion process that allows for homogenous CNT application and reduced CNT loads by one order of magnitude. Our innovative approach involves the use of an ultra-sonic media to separate the Carbon Nano-Tubes and disperse them within the powdered electrode material. In this way, the enhanced electrode material, which increases battery capacity by 50%, can be produced without any degradation in the electronic mechanical properties of the battery electrodes. IonDrive is an innovative solution that will release to the world the full potential of CNT-based LIBs. The innovation has the potential to drive LIB market growth through battery cost reductions and opening new market and business opportunities.

Project Value 245,441
Project Detail

Nowadays, important safety concerns limit large-scale use of lithium batteries for electric vehicles and stationary storage. Despite their high ionic conductivity, conventional liquid electrolytes for lithium batteries are highly flammable and can leak out of the battery case. Safer electrolytes are needed to enable the next-generation of rechargeable batteries. The eJUMP Global Fellowship aims to develop innovative nanocomposites electrolytes based on Organic Ionic Plastic Cristals (OICPs) – a novel class of solid state electrolytes with intrinsic safety and high ionic conductivity. The eJUMP approach is to prepare composites materials from OIPCs and polymer nanoparticles – which can act both as reinforcement but also add function via a purposely designed nanoparticle interfaces. The knowledge generated by eJUMP will help to establish specific design criteria for the fabrication of this new class of solid electrolytes. The fellow – Dr. Luca Porcarelli – will carry out the research and training activities of the outgoing phase at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Electromaterials Science (Deakin University, Australia), under the supervision of Prof. Maria Forsyth. The incoming phase will take place at POLYMAT (University of the Basque Country, Spain) at the Innovative Polymer Group of Prof. David Mecerreyes. The quality of the multidisciplinary research program will broaden the scientific knowledge of the fellow and help him to set the basis for the development of a new class of products providing performance competitive with traditional electrolytes and improved safety standards.
