SUSTANIABLE BATTERIES FROM FOREST RESIDUES

GreenBattery

GreenBattery

The GreenBattery project focuses on building the prototype of a green battery. The key idea behind the project lies in establishing a battery prototype with green (or greener) components without compromising the performance of the battery.

Energy storage is an increasingly growing research area and electrical energy storage systems are in great need because of the rapid expansion of digital appliances, portable electronics, electric vehicles, etc. Batteries are one type of energy storage system with increased demand in recent years.

Due to the increased demand for batteries, several Gigafactories are being built in Europe. Unfortunately, these are not yet following the principles of sustainability set by EU, because harmful or even toxic compounds are used in cell assembling, and active electrode material contains critical raw materials. The project want to develop a prototype of a biobased battery by using residual products from the forest industry such as (hydrolysis) lignin, bio sludge, fiber sludge, bark, ash and filter dust etc.
