Cathode with 3.0 g/cm3 density and anode with 20 wt. % of Si (730 mAh/g capacity). Stable electrolyte up to 5.0V.
Testing as part of the materials development, assessment of the performance in 1st and 2nd life (including LCA, costs, and TRL). Demonstrated recyclability, at 90% recycling efficiency.
Ultrafast 3D electrode multilayer coating and laser structuring at a speed of ≥ 5 m/min against LNMO||Si/C.
TRL scale-up of the HighSpin LNMO||Si/C to enter the market as “second-step Gen. 3b” LIB in 2028 (automotive) and 2030 (aeronautics).
LNMO cells at 390 Wh/kg and 925 Wh/l at a cost target of 90 €/kWh (pack level). 300 cells/150 CMUs produced and 2 sets of module demonstrators delivered at TRL 6.
A team of more than 60 researchers are involved in HighSpin, with 3 Ph.D. students supervised, one each at KIT, FZJ and CICE.
To achieve the objectives, the key project activities encompass:
HighSpin aims to demonstrate the developed technologies at the battery module level (automotive as well as aeronautic) at TRL6, and the recyclability of the developed cells using a direct recycling process as well as an advanced hydrometallurgical process.
