All partners have prior experience in international collaboration in research projects. Relevant combination of academic, applied research and industry partners to ensure research, dissemination and exploitation of the results. Competencies from multiple domains to cover the multidisciplinary research aspects of SOMABAT. Involvement of battery manufacturing companies to improve their business in the Battery Market. In order to receive feedback on the technical progress an Industrial Users Group has been set up. The project is granted by European Commission in the frame of FP7 by 3.7 million € and 5 million € of global inversion. The duration of the project is 3-years life.
Public-Private Partnership "Green Cars": Cross-Thematic cooperation between NMP, ENERGY; ENVIRONMENT (including Climate Change); TRANSPORT. Area topic; GC.NMP.2010-1 Better batteries for Electric Vehicles SOMABAT aims to develop a more environmentally friendly, safer and better performing lithium polymer battery for Electric Vehicles. The consortium is composed of experts in materials, battery field, and end-of-life management which lead to a strong complementarity in terms of expertise and geographic distribution. General OBJECTIVE: SOMABAT will exploit the use of alternative synthesis and processing methods to develop novel nanostructured solid materials for their use as lithium polymer battery components. This strategy will conduct to a battery with an energy density up to 220 Wh/kg and a final cost less than 150 €/kWh. General Vision of FP7-SOMABAT Project.
The Project is coordinated by Dr. Mayte Gil-Agustí from Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía (ITE) Valencia, Spain. In photo: SOMABAT Director and Consortium leaders. MATERIALS * DESIGN and INTEGRATION * SUSTAINABILITY
To develop an environmentally friendly, safer and better performing high energy density Li polymer battery. Development of different novel synthetic and recyclable materials using new low-cost synthesis and processing methods Carbon based hybrid materials anode Novel LiFePO4 and LiFeMnPO4 based nanocomposite cathode Highly conductive electrolyte polymeric membranes Study and test of the potential recyclability and revalorisation of the battery components ( at least 50% by average weight of the lithium polymer battery will be recyclable - DIRECTIVE 2006/66/EC). Life cycle assessment of the battery
Specific objectives and associated milestone, to reach the general objective: Study of technical specifications for batteries and new emerging potential markets Development of synthetic and recyclable materials with very well controlled properties by new synthesis and processing methods in order to improve the energy density of the Li polymer battery (i.e 220 Wh/kg), enhance the stability of electrodes and electrolyte involved in the battery, prolong the cycle life up to 4000 cycles, increase of the cell charge rates to 5 C (1C-rate signifies a charge or discharge rate equal to the capacity of a battery in one hour) and reduce internal resistance improving present values of 2 milliohms. Careful selection of cathode and anode pairs in order to maintain an acceptable cell voltage of at least 3 V and to realize a reasonable energy density without unduly increasing the weight or volume of the cell through the insertion compound anode. Validation of the developed materials and evaluate their scaling-up to produce them as components of a high power Li polymer battery
Development, integration and test of a new battery management system useful for the new developed materials Modelling of Li polymer cells behaviour composed by selected and optimised solid materials obtained in the project Integration of the optimised solid materials as a prototype Li polymer battery and test it. Fabrication of a few cells at pilot plant scale. These cells will be designed to target between 10-40 Ah capacity and reach the ambitious goal of >200 Wh/kg. Recyclability of components of Li polymer battery; theoretical study and laboratory test analysis in order to obtain a more environmentally friendly Li polymer battery in which at least 50% by average weight of the lithium polymer battery will be recyclable (DIRECTIVE 2006/66/EC). Reduction of the cost of the Li polymer battery down to 150 €/kWh by the use of low cost synthesis and processing methods, high energy density electrodes, lithium polymer technology and the revalorisation of the materials developed as battery components. Analyze the environmental impact and sustainability of the developed lithium polymer battery by a complete life cycle assessment
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas [CIN2 (CSIC-ICN)] and Umicore will obtain novel nanostructured cathode materials based on lithium iron and manganese phosphate. The advantage of this new material is that it offers maximum energy storage in minimum space, safety and it is environmentally friendly. Université de Liège, Kiev National University of Technologies Design, and ITE will develop anode materials based on synthetic carbon, and other obtained from agricultural wastes. With these materials the energy density will be improved in about 30% with respect to carbon based conventional anodes. Both electrodes will be much less costly and a lot more reliable than traditional alternatives. Therefore, it will meet the essential requirements for the mass industrial development of electric vehicles. Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía and Institute of Chemistry Timisoara of Romanian Academy will develop new porous polymeric materials and series of flame-retardant polyphosphoesters which will reduce safety problems such as leakage, short circuits, overcharge, over-discharge, crush and exposure to fire as all the components of the battery will be solids. Cegasa International, Virtual Vehicle Competence Center, Lithium Balance, Cleancarb, and Atos Origin will perform strategies centered on the improvement of materials integration, modeling procedures, and optimizing the management system of the battery. Recupyl and Accurec will focus on recyclability alternatives for the used components, achieving a more environmentally-friendly battery in which at least 50% by average weight will be recyclable. A Life Cycle Assessment will be included in the development of the new battery.
Strategic IMPACT of the SOMABAT Project Large scale introduction of emission-free vehicles (environmental concern and energy dependency in EU countries) Novel nanostructured solid materials - tailoring properties of materials (reduce outstandingly the safety problems) Recyclability alternatives (focus on direct re-use of battery components) Reducing of the total manufacturing costs Increase of energy efficiency
The roots of the Institute of Chemistry of the Romanian Academy are bound with the formation of some research groups which developed the basic nucleus of the Chemistry Department of the Romanian Academy – Timisoara Branch in 1958, which further became an independent institute, namely Centre of Chemistry Timisoara (CCT). The Institute of Chemistry of the Romanian Academy is nowadays organized in three Departments: Inorganic Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Computational Chemistry. Research Directions Fundamental research in chemistry is the main activity but the scientific research has ranging to concrete forms of applied research.
oInorganic and hybrid compounds with relevance in nanostructured materials science. oAdvanced materials with special optoelectrical properties based on meso- arylporphyrins (or their complex combinations) oSynthesis, applications, structure and reactivity of organic and element- organic compounds of Phosphorus, Nitrogen and Fluorine. oMolecular design assisted by computer.

Polyols will be also used to obtain a crosslinked network. Environmental friendliness of these innovative technologies will be performed (biodegradable, flame-retardant properties). Finally, SPE membranes will be characterized from structural, thermal, morphological and electrochemical points of view.
