Sustainable Supercapacitors

CRM-free technology for the next-generation supercapacitors


Graphene, MXene and ionic liquid-based sustainable supercapacitor

The EU project GREENCAP will develop a CRM-free technology to produce high-performance and sustainable supercapacitors, which exploit layered 2D materials, including graphene and MXenes as electrode materials, and ionic liquids as high-voltage electrolyte.

GREENCAP joins a multi-disciplinary consortium with 5 Universities, 1 R&D Institute, 5 companies, located in 7 European countries including Italy, Germany, France, Ireland, United Kingdom, Estonia, and the Netherlands, to unlock the full potential of supercapacitors (SCs) as electrochemical energy storage systems.

GREENCAP in figures

48% progress

of the total project.
GREENCAP started at the first of January 2023 and will run for 36 months


funding from the European Commission in Horizon Europe program

11 partners

from 8 different countries

Third Milestone achieved!

We are proud to announce that GREENCAP has achieved another milestone: “Identification of the first set of functionalized EMs for SC using IL-based electrolytes”.
