GREENLion – Advanced Manufacturing Processes for Low Cost Greener Li-ion Batteries

GREENLION is a Large Scale Collaborative Project within the FP7 leading to the manufacturing of greener and cheaper Li-Ion batteries for electric vehicle applications via the use of water soluble, fluorine-free, high thermally stable binders, which would eliminate the use of VOCs and reduce the cell assembly cost. GREENLion has 5 key objectives:

  • Development of new active and inactive battery materials viable for water processing (green chemistry)
  • Innovative processes (coating from aqueous slurries) leading to reduced electrode production cost and environmental pollution
  • Development of new assembly procedures (including laser cutting and high temperature pre-treatment) capable of substantially reducing the time and cost of cell fabrication
  • Development of an automated module and battery pack assembly line for increased production output and reduced cost
  • Waste reduction, which, by making use of the water solubility of the binder, allows the extensive recovery of the active and inactive battery materials
