SELF-FORMING SOLID-STATE BATTERIES
Company Name University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego)
Funded By 107
Country United States , Northern America
Project Value 1 Million
Project Detail

The University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego), in partnership with Liox Power and the University of Maryland, will develop a self-forming, high temperature solid-state lithium battery that solves the critical cost and performance problems impeding commercialization of solid-state batteries for electric vehicles. The battery will possess a very long life due to a chemical mechanism that repairs cycling damage automatically. This self-healing electrolyte will also limit the growth of dendrites. Dendrites are branchlike metal fibers that can grow to span the space between the negative and positive electrodes, thereby causing a short circuit. The team plans to reduce costs by designing a manufacturing process for forming solid-state electrolytes and cathodes in a single step by depositing a graded lithium/phosphorous/sulfur composite material as both the cathode and electrolyte. In theory, this composition should be able to remove any deformations due to dendrite formation by a simple thermal cycling process. A non-flammable polymer used within this composite will both add structural strength and eliminate the need for flammable liquid electrolytes. The team projects that the battery will cost half of current lithium-ion batteries while doubling the energy density.

Project Detail

Scarce cobalt eliminated from Li-ion batteries Cobalt is necessary for the production of the most common types of lithium-ion batteries (Li-ion), like the rechargeable ones used to power our portable electronic devices and electric vehicles. The transition to electric mobility is widening the gap between supply and demand and increasing the price of cobalt. However, substitution of cobalt in Li-ion batteries, although possible, has not taken place. The EU-funded COBRA project aims to reverse this situation. It is developing a cobalt-free cathode with the participation of three universities and seven research and technology organisations as well as four SMEs and five enterprises, covering the entire value chain of the EU battery industry.

Project Detail

Transport is responsible for around a quarter of EU greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and more than two thirds of transport-related GHG emissions are from road transport. Countries around the world are betting on EVs to meet sustainability targets. Battery cells are considered as the heart of EVs, and currently EU OEMs import around 90% of the battery cells from Asian companies. New materials and processes are needed if the EU wants to catch up with Asian battery manufacturers. SAFELiMOVE will gather key European actors in the battery sector, from industrial materials producers, to R&D centers and automotive industry, covering the complete knowledge and value chain. SAFELiMOVE will not only strengthen the R&D in the energy and automotive sectors but especially the European industry in these fields. SAFELiMOVE project aims to support a market-driven disruptive technology change towards high energy density batteries (450 Wh/kg or 1200 Wh/L) and improved safety in a cost-effective manner. SAFELiMOVE delivers innovations in five main technology areas: development of nickel-rich layered oxide cathode materials; high specific capacity, lithium metal anode materials; advanced hybrid ceramic-electrolyte with improved ion conductivity at room temperature; interface adoption for effective Li transport by surface modification and/or over-coatings, and knowhow creation for the development of scale up production of all-solid-state batteries. By higher energy density batteries towards 450 Wh/kg, faster charging and longer cycle life, SAFELiMOVE aims to meet future battery requirements for EVs. Thus, the range of EVs will be extended and the electro-mobility and decarbonization will be further pushed forward with impact in climate change scenarios.

Project Detail

"We propose calcium based rechargeable batteries to be a FET helping to solve some of the Grand Challenges our modern society is facing: pollution, oil-dependency, and climate change. Today transportation contributes to >25% of the total CO2-emissions globally and while electrification of the sector is on-going still <1% of cars run on batteries – mainly due to issues of cost and driving ranges feasible (energy density limited). While the cost of the totally dominant Li-ion battery (LIB) technology has been reduced by an impressive 50%(!) the last decade, LIBs are slowly reaching their fundamental limits in terms of energy density. Furthermore, the risk of limited lithium supply and associated cost increases cannot be ignored. Therefore, new sustainable battery chemistries must be developed and Next Generation Batteries was indeed ranked as the #2 game-changing technology by the World Economic Forum in Davos 2016. Batteries based on Ca have promise of leap-frog increase in energy densities and are especially attractive as Ca is the 5th most abundant element on Earth’s crust and can be used as metallic anode in conventional wide potential window electrolytes, as recently showcased by the coordinating partner. The main objective of CARBAT builds on this breakthrough and is to achieve proof-of-concept for a Ca anode rechargeable battery with > 650 Wh/kg and > 1400 Wh/l. CARBAT will accomplish this by combining scientific efforts and excellence in computational screening, solid-state and coordination chemistry, materials science, electrochemistry, and battery engineering, and apply this to: (i) develop cathode active materials operating at 4 V and with capacities of 200-300 mAh/g (ii) optimize electrolyte formulations for fast Ca2+ transport (>1 mS/cm), and finally (iii) assembly of 100 mAh full cell demonstrators integrating such materials which will be validated and benchmarked vs. the state-of-the-art Li-ion technology using performance and sustainability indicators."

Project Value 5 Million
Project Detail

As of today, Europe remains not competitive in terms of Lithium battery cell development and especially manufacturing. This lack of competence and competitiveness could quickly spiral down into a complete loss of this key technology for electrification in the EU. Thus IMAGE will significantly contribute to sustainably develop the European Li-battery cell manufacturing competence and capability by creating a competitive, production-oriented research & development framework within Europe. A realistic and well-documented roadmap towards the manufacturing of cost-effective and competitive battery cells within Europe will emerge. This will be enforced by establishing a distributed battery cell production base that will be able, after careful upscaling of production, to supply the now burgeoning electric vehicle industry. From this context, the main goal of IMAGE is to push European’s Li-battery industry and academia to take over a leading role in the development and manufacturing of Next Generation Li-Ion cells. IMAGE has the following major objectives: 1) Develop generic production techniques for next generation battery cells based on high specific energy Li-metal battery cells. This will include a modular development approach that will be easy to up-scale while remaining flexible and safer to replace in case of any contingencies and market/ manufacturer configuration changes. 2) Identify energy and resource efficient cell manufacturing technologies and assets tailored to the existent European industrial infrastructure. This will include the identification of bottleneck factors and challenges that could be addressed in the present European industrial context. 3) Develop a progressive, multiple-tier technological and production framework that is able to cope with the inherent technological changes and advancements characteristic to this dynamic field. Thus, there will be several technologies covered by IMAGE, each having different technological maturity level.

Optimizing response to Li treatment through personalized evaluation of individuals with bipolar I disorder: the R-LiNK initiative
Company Name INSTITUT NATIONAL DE LA SANTE ET DE LA RECHERCHE MEDICALE
Funded By 38
Country France , Western Europe
Project Value 8 Million
Project Detail

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a prevalent mental disorder and a leading cause of suicide. Lithium (Li) is the key mood stabilizer for prevention of BD relapse and suicide. Whilst many cases become asymptomatic with Li treatment, the majority show sub-optimal response. Identifying biomarkers for predicting Liresponse would enable personalization of treatment, define criteria for stratification of BD cases and further refine the clinical response phenotype. The objectives of this proposal are to (i) improve outcomes of bipolar I disorder (BDI) cases prescribed Li through the application of stratified approaches; (ii) optimize the early prediction of lLi response using a set of multi-modal biomarkers (“blood omics”, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Li7-Magnetic Resonance Imaging derived-markers); (iii) develop a multidisciplinary multinational network of experts to undertake this and future projects on personalized diagnostics and therapeutics; and (iv) implement new, powerful technologies to characterize brain Li distribution and the blood molecular signature of Li in responders and non-responders. This cutting edge approach will identify the eligibility criteria for treatment with Li in BD in terms of response, safety and tolerability. The assessment of each putative biomarker (singly and combined) will be guided by preliminary findings already obtained by R-LiNK; our expertise will allow exploratory analyses and innovative modelling of multi-modal data. Likely impacts include improved outcomes and quality of life for BDI cases; development of a screening tool for clinicians; and an evaluation of the cost-effectiveness of this stratified approach. The network will develop new avenues of research on Li mechanisms of action and disease mechanisms; our industrial partnerships will enable development of medical devices to improve treatment adherence and patient’s autonomy, diagnostic kits, and tools based on the molecular signature in treatment responders.

VolThinSens. Challenging societal needs involving ions detection: New strategies for the development of Voltammetry ion Sensors based on Thin membranes
Company Name KUNGLIGA TEKNISKA HOEGSKOLAN
Funded By 38
Country Sweden , Western Europe
Project Value 1,85,857
Project Detail

Modern society is evolving to a scenario in which all daily activities will be monitored using smart sensors. The provision of rapid, reliable and decentralized data is crucial and chemical sensors are current candidates for this purpose. VolThinSens puts forward an innovative sensing strategy from the ground up for reliable detection of ions addressing problems that constitute the bottleneck for the final application of electrochemical sensors in real contexts. To achieve this, the research methodology of VolThinSens involves the exploration of thin ion-sensing membranes based on new materials by using voltammetry and innovative techniques that the project will put forward for the study of the membrane robustness. The developed sensors will be interrogated using coulometry towards a calibration-free technology based on counting charges of the ion analyte that are implied in the electrochemical process. VolThinSens will provide a solution for these two challenges offering robust ion sensors with a wide application perspective within EU priorities such as “citizens’ welfare” and “protecting nature”, among others. The final demonstration of the concept is conceived as the integration of the developed voltammetric sensors for the detection of two ions with pharmacological/clinical and environmental relevance as proof-of-concept: lithium and ammonium. Thus, lithium will be detected in urine, serum and dissolution testing of pharmaceuticals and ammonium in aquatic systems. Interestingly, in situ sensing is aimed through the implementation of the ammonium sensor into a custom-built profiler ion analyser and its deployment in a lake for levels mapping in depth and time axis. VolThinSens will enhance EU excellence and competitiveness in pharmacological/clinical control as well as water issues through the provision of trustable relevant data.
