Overview of anydrous battery platform.

Project LiPLANET
(supported by Horizon 2020)

  • Aiming to build a more competitive Li-ion battery cell manufacturing ecosystem
  • Increasing the production of Li-ion cells towards industrial scale
  • Bringing together the most relevant European Li-ion cell pilot lines and the main stakeholders of the battery sector
  • Creating of a standardised legal framework and a data exchange platform for the cooperation between industry, academia and pilot lines
