CoFBAT: Cobalt Free Solutions for Batteries
The CoFBAT project “Advanced Material Solutions for Safer and Long-lasting High Capacity Cobalt Free Batteries for Stationary Storage Applications” has kicked off on 12 November in Brussels, Belgium.
EASE is participating in the project that aims to develop novel solutions for battery storage with a modular technology, suitable for different applications fulfilling the increasing need of decentralised energy production and supply for private households and industrial robotised devices. CoFBAT will strengthen the EU competitiveness in advanced materials and the related battery value chain by developing a cobalt-free solution and safe polymer electrolytes.
The project seeks to involve stakeholders from the whole battery value chain: from materials to battery manufacturing, including electrochemical characterisation and life cycle assessment. CoFBAT is the result of a collaboration 19 partners from 9 different countries. EASE will be in charge of developing and carrying communication activities for this project, and is looking forward to work within this innovative initiative.
