ASTRABAT: New European Project to Develop Solid State Lithium-ion Battery Cells for the Mobility Sector

Industry News – Friday, May 29, 2020

Fraunhofer ISC has presented a new project called ASTRABAT, which aims to develop lithium-ion batteries that meet the state-of-the-art requirements of the e-mobility market in Europe. The declared aim is to help Europe achieve sustainable, environmentally friendly mobility and keep pace with the competition from the Asian region. The project is funded by the European Union with a total budget of 7.8 million Euros and is scheduled to run for four years.

The project is being carried out by the French research institution CEA (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) and is being undertaken by a consortium of 14 partners from 8 European countries. These include leading research centres and universities as well as companies from the battery industry and the energy sector. The basis of the battery cell innovation is a novel solid state electrolyte. The aim is to create new types of batteries that can be manufactured using conventional production processes, but at the same time offer improved safety properties and are compatible with advanced electrode materials.
