Press release — 29 May 2020
A new EU project called ASTRABAT has been created to push forward with the development of solid-state battery cells
The aim of the project is to create such cells for electric vehicles and other applications in Europe. The project consortium comprises 14 partners from eight European countries.
The core of the project, which is funded by the EU with 7.8 million euros and is scheduled to run for four years, is the development of a “safe, high-energy, sustainable and marketable lithium-ion cell technology that can be manufactured on a large scale in Europe,” the project partners write in a press release.
The main focus of the project, which is coordinated by the French research institution CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives), is on a novel solid-state electrolyte that is compatible with next-generation high-energy electrode materials and at the same time enables processing with established production processes.
