Month 18 virtual General Assembly meeting

February 21, 2024|

The NoVOC team met again to discuss the project progress On February 13 and 14, 2024, we had our second General Assembly meeting and virtually met for 2 half days to discuss our project progress since we last saw each other in October last year ad the premises of Cidetec in beautiful San Sebastián, in Spain. The leaders of our scientific work packages, Mattia Giuliano, Guiomar Hernández, Syed Muqurrab Ali Zaidi, Dr. Nicolas Bucher, and Romain Chane Ki Chune, provided updates on their teams' progress and we engaged in enlightening discussions on various topics including coating, wet and dry processing, silicone and graphite availability, and more. We've also spent some time catching up and reconnecting with our glorious peers. As always, we welcomed NoVOC "newbies" to the team, who introduced themselves at the beginning of the meeting and were warmly greeted and integrated to our group.

First Battery Heroes workshop

November 9, 2023|

First Battery Heroes workshop: stay tuned for TRA2024! On the 4th of October we did our first workshop with our clustering group, BatteryHeroes. 🔋💪 Together with representatives of our sister projects BatWoMan, greenSPEED EU Project and GIGAGREEN project and hosted by our dear Iratxe de Meatza at the premises of CIDETEC we brainstormed, inspired each other. Specifically, we worked on what to bring to the TRA conference, and ultimately came up with a great plan for an engaging workshop including the key experts and challenges of the battery field. 🔋 💡Have you heard about this event? 🚙The Transport Research Arena (TRA) takes place in Dublin, the 15th to the 18th of April. And is the foremost European transport event. Don’t miss it! 👀

NoVOC project kicks-off in Sweden!!

November 23, 2022|

In September 2022, our new NOVOC project started with a Kick-off meeting in Stockholm at the premises of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. NOVOC (eliminating VOC from battery manufacturing through dry or wet processing) implements an entire innovation cycle by calibrating the needs of automotive end users, transferring these to battery manufacturers and the leading battery R&D teams and component producers for the development of novel components, and finally closing the cycle by involving a recycling plant for the recycling and harvesting of low and high value components at the end-of-life. What a great start into 4 years of collaboration within the scope of the NOVOC project!! We are very excited to start working with this enthusiastic, experienced and fun group of people! 🥳
