  • Project »INERRANT«
    © Project »INERRANT«

    The INERRANT project is committed to pushing the boundaries of current LIB technologies by focusing on the development of innovative material combinations, advanced electrolyte formulations, and eco-friendly recycling methods that prioritise safety and recyclability. This holistic approach targets the entire battery lifecycle, from design and manufacturing to end-of-life recycling.

    With increasing registration numbers of electric vehicles, sustainable production and recycling of traction batteries are gaining in importance - literally. Thanks to coordinated joint research efforts, battery cells should also be able to be produced in Germany and Europe in the future. Against this background, cell production processes must be as environmentally friendly and battery materials must be recovered and reused as efficiently as possible. Only in this way can battery-based electromobility become truly future-proof and sustainable.

    The separation of dissolved valuable substances and pollutants in low concentrations is essential for efficient water treatment and raw material supply. Thus, it is imperative to develop solutions for better separation of heavy metals or drug residues from industrial/clinical wastewater as well as Li concentration for batteries and water desalination for green hydrogen.

    Lithium-ion batteries require in addition to lithium metal a number of sophisticated functional materials for their performance. Some of them sound rather unspectacular: conductive additives. In fact, conductive additives like carbon black or carbon nanotubes are a decisive component for the performance and environmental benignity of lithium-ion batteries. The recently launched collaborative project HiQ-CARB aims to provide new carbons with a superior performance and a low carbon footprint for future green batteries in Europe. HiQ-CARB is receiving EU funding from EIT RawMaterials to scale up and validate this important battery material.

    Battery production and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) methods are two key technologies for Germany and Europe as well. For the production of battery cells, an increase in productivity is necessary, among other things. This can be increased by reducing scrap, material and energy use. By digitizing production and using AI-based methods, this productivity can be significantly increased.
