SOMABAT aims to develop more environmentally 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, new alternatives to recycle the different components of the battery and cycle life analysis. 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. An assessment and test of the potential recyclability and revalorisation of the battery components developed and life cycle assessment of the cell 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 €/KWh. The consortium has made up with experts in the field and complementary in terms of R&D expertise and geographic distribution.
