The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology has been chosen to lead Opincharge, an EU Horizon Europe project to study the solid state interfaces of lithium-ion batteries, so that future iterations will be better, safer and more recyclable. The project, which has received €5m from the European Commission and €700,000 from the Swiss government, aims to develop prototype nanoanalytical instruments for analysing current and future battery interfaces. Luxembourg is also home to Circu Li-ion, a start-up that aims to increase the use of battery cells, claiming that 80% of them can be reused.
