OPINCHARGE – Innovation in producing safe and long-lasting batteries

The main goal of the initiative “OPINCHARGE – OPerando analyses and modelling of INterface dynamics and CHARGE transport in lithium-ion batteries” is to develop a set of effective operando nano-scale and sub-nano-scale techniques and methodologies. The aim being the analysis and understanding of interactions between the interfacial structure, its chemical evolution and charge dynamics in unprecedented level of detail.

The project plans to:

1/ create advanced tools and methods for studying electrode/electrolyte reactions at a nanoscale by adapting previously limited techniques with innovative technologies and protocols,

2/ integrate Artificial Intelligence/Machine learning algorithms for low dose high-throughput data acquisition, and for data treatment,

3/ develop a multi-technique integrating platform towards characterizing interfacial reactions at unprecedented time and length scales in working conditions,

4/  increase the lifetime and safety of batteries, by linking the new understanding of battery interfaces developed through this project to the degradation models of batteries during and after their usage,

5/ maximize outreach and exploitation of the tools and data generated through OPINCHARGE: to deepen the knowledge of the big understanding within the research and industrial communities.

Main benefits of the project

OPINCHARGE will contribute to the groundwork towards BATT4EU priorities and other transversal priorities. The improved understanding of batteries and their chemical reactions will allow manufacturers to produce safe and long-lasting batteries. In such a way it will be possible to diminish their carbon footprint, and contribute to a clean and sustainable industrial transition of the battery industry. This will further add up towards achieving a climate neutral energy sector.

The initiative is coordinated by the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). The project consortium is comprised of PEDAL Consulting and 8 partners from Luxembourg, France, Spain, Germany, Netherlands.
