NOVALI: “Towards sustainable and high energy density batteries for the automotive and aviation industry”
Will you participate?
SIM received a new project idea “Towards sustainable and high energy density batteries for the automotive and aviation industry”.
The main goal of this project is to strengthen Flanders position in the automotive and aviation industry by bolstering technological developments along the battery value chain that enable next generation high energy density batteries. Because of the inherent interdependencies, the project takes on a holistic approach considering several key elements along the value chain and in doing so builds a pipeline for developing, scaling and bringing to market new battery technology, that is:
- Basic material and component development
- Development of novel nano-processing techniques and upscaling thereof
- Cell development
- Process and pilot line development
- Pack development and vehicle integration
The focus of the strategic basic research is on developing novel nano-processing techniques, materials and cell design concepts on a lab scale, but with special consideration for future upscaling potential of the technology beyond the lab.
The focus of the industrial part is on validating possible future supply chains for new materials, scaling cell design concepts, developing manufacturing processes and equipment and validating battery cells in packs and vehicles. One of the goals is to set up early-stage pilot production of next generation cells and packs in Flanders after 1,5-2 years with the intention to scale production to larger volumes onwards.
Will you participate?
- Advisory board of the SBO-part of the project
Possibility for companies to join the advisory board, in which case the consortium has already indicated that they also want to discuss relevant use cases from the companies in the project.
If you want more information on this project idea or you are interested in joining the project consortium as part of the user group, please contact Roald De Meyer: firstname.lastname@example.org
