Abstract

GREENLION is a Large Scale Collaborative Project within the FP7 (GC.NMP.2011-1) 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. The project has 6 key objectives: (i) development of new active and inactive battery materials viable for water processes (green chemistry); (ii) development of innovative processes (coating from aqueous slurries) capable of reducing electrode production cost and avoid environmental pollution; (iii) development of new assembly procedures (including laser cutting and high temperature pre-treatment) capable of substantially reduce the time and the cost of cell fabrication; (iv) lighter battery modules with easier disassembly through eco-designed bonding techniques; (v) waste reduction, which, by making use of the water solubility of the binder, allows the extensive recovery of the active and inactive battery materials; and (vi) development of automated process and construction of fully integrated battery module for electric vehicle applications with optimized electrodes, cells, and other ancillaries. Achievements during the first 18 months of the project, especially on materials development and water-based electrode fabrication are reported herein.
