Obtaining more conductive and performant electrolytes, by means of phase-separation of the DES and polymer phases

New Future

Al-S based batteries can have a place in certain market niches as a new future technology on batteries.

Aluminium and Sulphur

a combination especially attractive because of the very high abundance of both elements.

Innovative

Our goal: to put Europe back at the forefront of the research in the field of new battery technologies.

About us
AMAPOLA will foster the developments achieved in the FET-Open SALBAGE project, towards real applications and towards market. The focus will be put in turning the promising research results obtained in SALBAGE into genuine technological innovations demonstrating that Al-S based batteries can have a place in certain market niches as a new future technology on batteries. The project is founded in the combination of sulfur and aluminium in a battery, what is especially attractive because of the very high abundance of both elements. The Al-S cell has the potential to store very high energy, and very high prospective values of energy density of 660 Wh/l and specific energy of 400 Wh/kg are calculated at a cell level, taking advantage of the incorporation of innovative Polymer Gel Electrolytes (PGEs) based on novel highly conductive and inexpensive Deep Eutectic Solvents (DES) for a cheaper, lighter, tougher and safer battery concept.

AMAPOLA is an EU-funded FET PROACTIVE project for the development of Aluminium Sulfur batteries. Rooted in the successful results of SALBAGE project (H2020-FETOPEN-1-2016-2017 G.A:  766581) the project will explore the challenges observed and will progress in the TRL of the Aluminium Sulfur battery with polymer gel electrolytes (PGEs). 

The focus is put in:

  • obtaining more conductive and performant electrolytes, by means of phase separation of the DES and polymer phases
  • obtaining more performant cathodes that overcome the capacity fading observed
  • exploring the scale-up and market aspects.

For that, a consortium of top-level research groups led by ICTP-CSIC has been gathered. 

Our aim is to develop a new battery based on Aluminium and Sulphur combined with a polymeric electrolyte.

Our goal is to put Europe back at the forefront of the research in the field of new batteries technologies.
