Post-Li-ion technologies and relevant manufacturing techniques for mobility applications (Generation 5)

👉 HORIZON-CL5-2024-D2-02-02

Proposals should address improvements in sustainable materials designs to reach the manufacturability and high safety of the selected technology.

Successful projects are expected to cover at least three of the following bullet points:

  • Improvement of materials:
    • Scalable and manufacturable surface coating materials for metallic anode protection and/or activation (e.g. CVD, PLD, ALD…) to increase safety and cycle life.
    • Binders with high chemical and thermal stability to reduce toxicity and enable the use of water-based manufacturing processes.
    • Design and development of new cell technologies with higher capacities compared to Li-ion cells.
    • Improve and increase the electrodes-electrolyte compatibility with additives to increase over cell time.
    • Improve the understanding of the chemical and/or electrochemical reaction mechanisms using advanced techniques in the cells for Gen5 technologies developed.
    • Improve the insertion cathode with high charge-storage capacity.
    • Use of safe and non-toxic materials.
    • New efficient and sustainable catalysts that can promote polysulfide conversion in Metal-S batteries or the oxygen evolution/reduction reactions in rechargeable Metal-air batteries.
  • Design and manufacturing:
    • Innovative cell design ensuring high performances, low cost and ready for recycling.
    • Develop relevant manufacturing processes and assess the possible manufacturing compatibility with the existing lithium-ion production infrastructure and production lines.
    • Proof of concept possibly at small pilot line scale.
    • Design production with low environmental impact, safe and healthy environment for workers, low energy consumption.

Projects are encouraged to demonstrate also techno-economic suitability of the solution for other emerging markets, such as motive power for off-road applications, or energy storage applications.


Activities are expected to achieve TRL 6-7 by the end of the project.
