GV-13-2017: PRODUCTION OF NEXT GENERATION BATTERY CELLS IN EUROPE FOR TRANSPORT APPLICATIONS
November 11, 2016
The aim of this consortium is to address the GV-13 call (see call text below) as part of the European Union's Horizon 2020 Framework Programme by developing a large-scale production line for lithium battery cells and post-lithium battery cells in Europe that would advance Europe's position in the global lithium battery market for transport and energy applications. In the course of this project, 3DB will lead the development of the machine network process for development of a battery substrate, coating, filling, testing, and burning. The process will include development of a system, manufacturing methods, mass production infrastructures, product tools, testing procedures, as well as applying for the necessary regulatory approvals, and establishing manufacturing protocols and the standardisation and qualification of the product. 3DB is looking for cooperation with partners with skills and in the relevant fields of expertise (described below) that will enable the acceleration of the process, product implementation, and render the system mature for market introduction. Each partner will support different stages of the technology development and integration in order to reach mass-scale production.
