Proposals should address improvements in sustainable materials designs[3] to reach the manufacturability and high safety of the selected Generation 5 technology for mobility applications.

  • Successful projects are expected to cover at least three of the following aspects regarding improvement of materials:
    • Scalable and manufacturable surface coating materials for metallic anode protection and/or activation (e.g. CVD, PLD, ALD…) to increase safety and cycle life.
    • Binders with high chemical and thermal stability to reduce toxicity and enable the use of water-based manufacturing processes.
    • Design and development of new cell technologies with higher capacities compared to Li-ion cells.
    • Improve and increase the electrodes-electrolyte compatibility with additives to increase over cell time.
    • Improve the understanding of the chemical and/or electrochemical reaction mechanisms using advanced techniques in the cells for Gen5 technologies developed.
    • Improve the insertion cathode with high charge-storage capacity.
    • Use of safe and non-toxic materials.
    • New efficient and sustainable catalysts that can promote polysulfide conversion in Metal-S batteries or the oxygen evolution/reduction reactions in rechargeable Metal-air batteries.
  • Successful projects are also expected to cover all of the following aspects regarding design and manufacturing:
    • Innovative cell design ensuring high performances, low cost and ready for recycling.
    • Develop relevant manufacturing processes and assess the possible manufacturing compatibility with the existing lithium-ion production infrastructure and production lines.
    • Proof of concept possibly at small pilot line scale.
    • Design production with low environmental impact, safe and healthy environment for workers, low energy consumption.
