Solvay undertakes major sustainability project – Energy Harvesting Journal

Solvay Specialty Polymers has announced the launch of the LIFE+ GLEE project, a highly focused sustainability program that aims to use water instead of organic solvents in the rechargeable lithium ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturing process. The major environmental project is supported by the European Commission via funding from the LIFE financial instrument of the European Community (LIFE12 ENV IT 000712).

As cathode materials are usually water-sensitive, well established rechargeable lithium ion (Li-ion) battery manufacturing processes imply usage of organic solvents most of which have been classified by the European Chemicals Agency as”substances of very high concern” because of their carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic effects for reproduction properties. The European Union’s REACH regulation encourages progressive substitution of these solvents.
