Liquid-Processed Solid-State Li-metal Battery: development of upscale materials, processes and architectures (R-10408).
SOLIDIFY is a Horizon 2020 Framework Programme research project LC-BAT.
The SOLiDIFY project proposes a unique manufacturing process and solid-electrolyte material to fabricate Lithium-metal solid-state batteries – known as Gen. 4b on the EU battery roadmap. The main goal of SOLiDIFY is to bring the liquid-processed solid-state cell fabrication concept from demonstration in the lab (TRL3) to demonstration of prototypes in pilot line (TRL6), with upscaling of the concept both towards:
- the development of manufacturable materials and processes and
- the discovery of full cell assembly schemes with ultimate demonstration of 1Ah pouch cells.
The material research will focus on:
- solutions enabling the upscaling process and manufacturability and
- further improvement of cell integration steps to enhance performance.
Manufacturable parameters such cost, environmental impact and recycling will also be handled. The larger scope of the SOLiDIFY project entails the development of a novel and potentially European-lead solid-state battery technology with fully covered EU value chain.
