Project description

The development of better materials for use in rechargeable batteries is vital for the future of the electric vehicle market. One of these materials is lithium nickel manganese oxide (LNMO), a cobalt-free cathode material that’s a cost-effective alternative to current lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery materials. Using LNMO, the EU-funded 3beLiEVe project aims to produce the next generation of Li-ion rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles in 2025 and beyond. Along with the next-gen battery cells, the project will also develop and integrate internal and external sensors for the cell. The data obtained from these sensors will provide a more timely and accurate view of the state of the cell and will be used to implement smart operating strategies that extend the life of the cell and improve its safety. The smart battery management system will process this data and manage an adaptive liquid cooling system. Manufacturing, second life and recycling aspects are also considered. The project’s innovations will play a role in strengthening the European battery and automotive industry.

Avesta's role

  • Integration of BMS advanced diagnostics, adaptive operating strategies and cooling
  • Testing and verification of the advanced diagnostics and adaptive operating strategies
  • Development of company-specific and 3beLiEVe exploitation strategies.
