GREENLION is a Large Scale Collaborative Project with the FP7 (topic 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.
GREENLION has 6 key objectives:

  •  development of new active and inactive battery materials viable for water processes (green chemistry);
  • development of innovative processes (coating from aqueous slurries) capable of reducing electrode production cost and avoid environmental pollution;
  • 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;
  • lighter battery modules with air cooling and easier disassembly through eco-designed bonding techniques
  • 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
  • construction of fully integrated battery module for electric vehicle applications with optimized cells, modules, and other ancillaries.

Accordingly, GREENLION aims to overcome the limitations of present Li-ion manufacturing technology for electric vehicle batteries with the goal to:
1- perform breakthrough work to position Europe as a leader in the manufacturing of high energy and environmentally benign batteries;
2- develop highly effective eco-designed processes;
3- develop automotive battery module systems with:
A) specific energy higher than 100 Wh/kg and specific power higher than 500 W/kg with respect to the overall weight of the system;
B) coulombic efficiency on average higher than 99.95% during cycling;
C) cycle life of 1,000 cycles with 20% maximum loss of capacity upon cycling between 100% and 0% SOC; and D) evaluate their integration in electric cars and renewable energy systems.
