On 28-29 June 2023 the HYDRA international workshop took place in Trondheim, Norway. HYDRA is a European project aiming to develop high-performance and sustainable lithium-ion batteries. This workshop brings together world-leading battery experts from both research and industry to discuss the latest advances and prospects for Li-ion batteries.
The workshop promoted technologies enabling Generation 3b Li-ion batteries, combining high-voltage electrodes and high-capacity anode blends with novel electrolyte formulations. Cutting edge physics-based and data-driven modelling tools were demoed and publicly released to help accelerate battery development from laboratory research to pack-scale engineering.
The workshop included presentations and panel discussions on the role of eco-design and advanced manufacturing methods in the battery industry. The workshop was open to battery students, researchers, and industry representatives.
Among other attendees were: Oxford uni., SINTEF, Fraunhofer- Gesellschaft, FREYR, Elinor, RWTH Aachen Uni., DLR, Imperial College London, Helmholtz Institute Ulm, Uppsala Uni., Topsoe, Politecnico di Torino, IREC, Vianode, Corvus Energy, ICSI, UC Louvain, Elkem, CEA.
As Solvionic is, besides GREENCAP, also a partner of HYDRA, Sebastien Fantini attended this event and presented an overview of today’s Li-ion electrolyte problematics as well Solvionic’s electrolyte development, production and outlook. During that presentation, the GREENCAP project was presented as one of Solvionic’s research projects focused on the development of novel and sustainable electrolytes for supercapacitors.
