Scientists from Wrocław University of Science and Technology working on new generation batteries


The Department of Process Engineering and Technology of Polymer and Carbon Materials, Wrocław University of Science and Technology is implementing the ZABAT project which is financed by the M-ERA.NET 3 competition for research in materials engineering. The network selected 70 projects, including 19 with the participation of scientists from Poland.

The new generation of environmentally friendly, reversible zinc-air cells storing much more energy than the currently used lithium-ion cells will be developed at Wrocław University of Science and Technology.

Scientists will use porous zinc materials, hydrogel electrolytes based on synthetic and natural polymers, and new multi-functional materials using transition metal compounds, graphene materials and porous carbon materials.

The following participants are involved in the ZABAT project: Acondicionamiento Tarrasense – Leitat Technological Center (Spain), SINTEF AS (Norway), Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and Heraeus Battery Technology GmbH (Germany) and the Wrocław University of Technology.
