Avesta's project Gigagreen

GIGAGREEN proposes a structured research plan to develop and scale up novel electrode and cell component manufacturing processes that follow a Design to Manufacture approach in line with Europe’s strategic goal of becoming a global leader in the Li-ion battery value chain. This means that GIGAGREEN seeks for the minimum environmental impact and energy consumption, cell designs which facilitate the re-use and disassembly, increase of the cost-efficiency and safety of processes and products, and high-throughput technologies able to be easily scaled up and automated in the context of industry 4.0/5.0 gigafactories

Project description


GIGAGREEN, a 48-month-long project under the coordination of POLITO, is currently underway with ABEE as a Technical and Scientific Coordinator. The project aims to develop a green gigafactory of the future through innovative design, materials and, processes, therefore positioning Europe at the forefront of sustainable and safe battery manufacturing processes. The consortium consists of 16 partners from 8 European countries, synergistically bringing together European experts in various aspects of battery production.

ABEE is tasked with ensuring the successful progression and conclusion of the GIGAGREEN’s scientific and technical targets. Additionally, ABEE will make use of its pilot line to prototype 10 Ah pouch cells. With this project, ABEE commits to the sustainable development of batteries with minimal environmental impact.
