EZD develops vanadium oxide-based high-performance electrodes for sodium ion batteries

The demand for self-sufficient energy storage solutions has reached an all-time high in recent months. Associated with this, the pressure on the industry to develop affordable, safe and additionally non-toxic battery storage systems is growing. The European Center for Dispersion Technologies (EZD) in Selb is addressing this issue as part of the newly launched "VOXCoat" project.

Cooperation project with Leibnitz institutes targets home storage of decentrally generated, renewable electricity

EZD is working on the project together with the project partners Leibnitz Institute for Plasma Research and Technology (INP) and Leibnitz Institute for New Materials (INM). Within the project, a novel, large-scale manufacturing process for the generation of electrodes based on nanostructured vanadium oxide (VOX) and carbon will be developed. This creates the basis for high-performance sodium ion batteries and the use of cobalt-free storage systems. The aim of the project is to develop a new, cost-effective process for the production of nanotextured vanadium oxide, a suitable formulation strategy for the suspension product, and initial technical performance data for sodium ion batteries compared to lithium ion batteries based on the new electrode material. Possible applications include home storage of decentrally generated, renewable electricity.

Companies interested in participating in the project's accompanying committee are welcome to contact the EZD. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) within the framework of the program for the promotion of joint industrial research (IGF) based on a resolution of the German Bundestag.
