The AM4BAT venture develops solid-state batteries made by 3D printing.
The fast rise of electrical mobility and renewable energies is pushing the marketplace for lithium batteries to new ranges. Most battery applied sciences are nonetheless primarily based on standard liquid electrolyte techniques which is a serious concern for security because of the chemical instability and flammability of liquid electrolytes.
The AM4BAT venture focuses on growing an anode-free solid-state battery (SSB), fabricated in a Vat Photopolymerization 3D LCD printing course of and delivering power densities of 400 Wh/kg and 1000 Wh/L for Electrical automobile (EV) purposes. The venture goals on the meeting and validation of a 3 Ah cell with a cost functionality of 70% of its complete capability in 5 minutes and cyclability of three,000 cycles till 80% of the unique capability.
AM4BAT’s distinctive attributes that makes it a singular and unique venture, corresponding to its potential to scale back manufacturing prices and time for each cathode and electrolyte, scale back using lithium metallic, and optimize the interface of the strong electrolyte and the cathode to acquire ionic conductivity values much like these of standard liquid electrolyte techniques.
Leitat will play an important position in coordinating and executing the actions, facilitating its mastery of the primary electrolyte formulations, which have already been despatched for testing within the vat photopolymerization course of; its formulation will later be optimized to extend ionic conductivity.
With the help of the consortium constituted by: French Different Energies and Atomic Power Fee (CEA), AIT Austrian Institute of Know-how GmbH, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Torrecid S.A, Leclanché GmbH, Toseda s.r.o., Psa Id, College School London, Photocentric Restricted, and Cambridge Nanomaterials Know-how Ltd.
- The venture allows the event of anode-free solid-state batteries, manufactured utilizing 3D printing by photopolymerization in vats, that are safer, extra sustainable and have the next capability.
- AM4BAT, coordinated by Leitat and financed by the European Union, rests on the participation of 11 entities from technological facilities and universities to the automotive business.
