Advanced manufacturing processes for Low Cost Greener Li-Ion batteries

GREENLION focuses on the manufacturing of greener and cheaper Li-Ion batteries for electric vehicles via the use of water soluble, fluorine-free, high thermally stable binders with the following 6 key objectives:

  • development of new active and inactive battery materials viable for water processing (green chemistry)
  • innovative processes (coating from aqueous slurries) leading to reduced electrode production cost and avoid environmental
  • pollution
  • development of new assembly procedures (including laser cutting and high temperature pre-treatment) capable of substantially reducing the time and the cost of cell fabrication
  • lighter battery modules with air cooling and easier disassembly through eco-designed bonding techniques
  • development of an automated module and battery pack assembly line for increased production output and reduced cost
  • waste reduction, which, by making use of the water solubility of the binder, allows the extensive recovery of the active and inactive battery materials
