Delivering the 3b generation of LNMO cells for the xEV market of 2025 and beyond

3beLiEVe aims to strengthen the position of the European battery and automotive industry in the future xEV market by delivering the next generation of battery cells, designed and made in Europe, for the electrified vehicles market of 2025 and beyond.

Project Activities

  • Development of automotive battery cells that are highly performant (target energy density 750wh/l, fast charge capability, long cycle life) and free of critical raw materials such as cobalt and natural graphite.
  • Development and integration of sensors into and onto the cells to enable smart, adaptive operating strategies and advanced diagnostics in order to extend the useful life of the battery in first and second life applications and improve safety.
  • A comprehensive manufacturing approach that is designed from the outset for a circular economy and industrial volumes. This encompasses green manufacturing processes for cell, module and pack, as well as recyclability assessment of the components, and a target lifecycle cost of 90 €/kWh at scale.
