SIMBA: Efficient and Sustainable Next-Generation Energy Storage

February 2021:

Altris is participating in the SIMBA project (Sodium-ion and sodium metal batteries for efficient and sustainable next-generation energy storage) which kicked off in January 2021.

The SIMBA project has the goal of delivering safe and low-cost all solid-state sodium battery technology for stationary applications. Reducing the use of critical materials is at the core of SIMBA, which will use sustainable battery materials to reduce supply risks, restrictions and environmental impact – all of which currently affect other technologies, such as Lithium-ion batteries.

The unprecedented concept of SIMBA is based on the integration of a sodium metal anode into a sodium free assembly architecture, including a highly porous support on the anode side, a single-ion conductive composite/hybrid polymer electrolyte and an innovative cathode material.

SIMBA gathers a consortium of 16 partners from 6 European Union and associated countries, with €8M in funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
