MATERIALS FOR SUSTAINABLE SODIUM-ION CAPACITOR
MUSIC targets a new supercapacitor technology that reaches energy density comparable to that of power batteries, but still recharges within few seconds and offers long cycle life with minimum efficiency loss over time. MUSIC incorporates a strong policy of sustainability and environmental friendliness. Thus, any use of CRM will be avoided for the development of the SIC technology and advanced novel carbonaceous electrode materials, binders and green electrolytes that are sustainable by design will be developed.
Technical and economic impacts
- Improvement of 15-20% of the energy and power output of Sodium-ion batteries
- Manufacture sodium-ion capacitors to contribute to the electrification of the transport and industry (avoiding polluting greenhouse gas gases and CO2 emissions)
- Design sodium-ion capacitors cells with gravimetric energy and power of at least 40 Wh/kg and 10 W/kg and over 100k cycles, enabled by a solution-processable, air-stable, low-cost presodiation strategy
- Sustainable super-capacitors made of sodium, recycled fibres and green chemicals
