In SALBAGE Project, a new secondary Aluminium Sulfur Battery will be developed. The focus will be put in the synthesis of
solid-like electrolytes based on polymerizable ionic liquids and Deep Eutectic Solvents in order to obtain polymer-gel
electrolytes with an overall ionic conductivity in the range of 1-10 mS/cm at room temperature. At the same time, the
aluminium negative electrode will be combined with a sulfur positive electrode including the unprecedented use of redox
mediators, to facilitate sulfur reaction kinetics and boost performance.
The new battery is expected to have a high energy density (1000Wh/kg) and low price compared with the actual Li-ion
technology (-60%). Moreover, we will take advantage of the special features of the resulting battery (flexibility, adaptability,
shapeability) to design a new device with the focus put on strategic applications such as transport, aircraft industry or ITs, for
which the SALBAGE battery will be specially designed and tested in relevant conditions.
