Next Generation Battery Materials and Concepts

Project: Business Finland project

Project Details


The Next Generation Battery Materials and Concepts project will develop materials and their processing technologies for solid-state lithium batteries (SSLB). Its focus is on materials for the new Li-metal anodes, both ceramic and polymeric electrolytes as well as NMC cathodes, and especially the phenomena at the interphases between the components. In addition to state-of-the-art slurry coating and printing processes, pulsed laser (PLD) and atomic layer (ALD) thin film deposition processes will be studied. Finnish companies are global frontrunners in these processes. Moreover, cellulose based webs will be used to reinforce the battery components. The project will combine the thin film processing know-how by Pulseon Ltd and Beneq Ltd with paper processing experience by Tervakoski Oy (Delfort) and battery materials and manufacturing skills by the research organizations. Aalto University, Tampere University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd will support the companies in the battery material and component synthesis and characterization. The objective is to demonstrate the functionality of the materials and concepts developed in NMC based SSLB pouch cells. International cooperation with German, French, Italian and US companies and research organizations is foreseen.
