Sustainable Materials for the Battery Value Chain (SUMBAT) KSP

Alternative title: Bærekraftige materialer for batteriverdikjeden (SUMBAT) KSP

Awarded: NOK 40.0 mill.

The "SUMBAT-KSP" project aims to strengthen existing battery activities and build up new competence within the institutes and universities to support the growing Norwegian battery industry. With a focus on materials, and in collaboration with the most central Norwegian stakeholders, the project covers the whole battery value chain, from sustainable sourcing of raw materials, development of battery active materials, via development of technologies and production processes for battery cells, to recycling and reuse of batteries. "SUMBAT KSP" will support the "SUMBAT Main project" (and the corresponding sub projects led by the industry partners) and be rooted in R&D. The project will facilitate the future production of battery materials, cells and systems as a sustainable Norwegian export industry, and hence contribute to the generation of new jobs connected to the green transition. By strengthening the collaboration in the national battery R&D community, the project will help Norwegian stakeholders to become internationally competitive.
