Logo GreenLion Project Coordination

GREENLion project

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 6 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 reduce the time and cost of cell fabrication
  • lighter battery modules with air cooling and easier disassembly through eco-designed bonding techniques
  • 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
