Presentation of ECO-SMART BATT project for sustainable 4.0 manufacturing of nanocomposites and ionogels in high energy density lithium-ion batteries

Next Thursday 3 June, ECO-SMART BATT consortium is organising a webinar at 10:00 am to present the project. The members of the consotium will explain the keys and objectives of the project, which investigates the sustainable 4.0 manufacturing of nanocomposites and ionogels for high energy density and lower cost batteries, which will boost the electrification of the mobility sector.

You can see the agenda of the event here.

Registration is open here:

The project, led by Ferroglobe Innovation, has a consortium formed by ABCR Labs, Ártabro Tech, ENSO Innovation and the CETIM Technological Centre, and is funded by the Galician Innovation Agency within the Factory of the Intelligent and Sustainable Future programme.


Strategic importance for the mobility of the future
Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) allow high energy densities to be achieved with long lifetimes; the chemical nature of the materials that make up the cathode, anode and electrolyte of the cell being a key aspect in determining the energy performance, costs and CO2 emissions of the battery.

In this context, ECO-SMART BATT will seek to significantly improve the energy density, cost and sustainability of lithium-ion batteries through novel research into sustainable and intelligent manufacturing of materials and their synergistic combinations, as well as research into monitoring, control and simulation technologies that enable the design of more efficient and profitable production processes, facilitating the evolution and transformation of the transport sector towards sustainability, decarbonisation and drastic emission reductions.

This R&D&i research is in line with the European Green Pact, which aims to transition the transport sector towards sustainable and climate-neutral technologies.

ECO-SMART BATT is a project financed by the Galician Innovation Agency (GAIN) and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (P.O FEDER Galicia 2014-2020), through the Fábrica do Futuro Program.
