Abstract:
SOMABAT aims to develop more environmental friendly, safer and better performing high power Li polymer battery by the development of novel breakthrough recyclable solid materials to be used as anode, cathode and solid polymer electrolyte and new alternatives to recycle the different components of the battery.
This challenge will be achieved by using new low-cost synthesis and processing methods in which it is possible to tailor the different properties of the materials. Development of different novel synthetic and recyclable materials based carbon based hybrid materials, novel LiFePO4 and LiMnPO4 based nanocomposite cathode with a conductive polymers or carbons, and highly conductive electrolyte membranes with porous architecture based on fluorinated matrices with nanosized particles and others based on a series of polyphosphates and polyphosphonates polymers will respond to the very ambitious challenge of adequate energy density (above 220 Wh/kg at charge rate of 5C), lifetime i.e. 4000 cycles) and safety.
An assessment and test of the potential recyclability and revalorisation of the battery components developed will allow the development of a more environmental friendly Li polymer battery in which a 50% weight of the battery will be recyclable and a reduction of the final cost of the battery up to 150 eur/KWh.
