Advanced materials for batteries (MAT4BAT)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Feb 28, 2017,

"Li-ion technologies initiated in the 90’ at a fast development pace thanks mainly to emerging ICTs with more than 20 GWh sold in 2010. Soon, it appeared as a credible technology for electrical vehicles as it could provide average energy densities of about 140 Wh/kg. However and since then,major breakthroughs have been expected to reach higher storage levels of 250 Wh/kg on battery system level wi ...

RE-NERGY 2014 – Building the sustainable economy

Start date: Nov 1, 2014, End date: Oct 31, 2016,

The RE-NERGY Project, with the proposal of 5 weeks transnational mobility, renews its commitment in the field of vocational training by focusing on new themes, but always starting from the needs of the cluster, as a response to the training needs of the productive sectors of the eastern provinces Piedmont (especially Alessandria Province). The focus then becomes polarized toward the handicraft s ...

"Economical use of PEM fuel cell power for stationary applications demands a lifetime of the fuel cells of at least 5 years, or more than 40,000 hours of continuous operation. The prospect of large scale application for automotive use has focused PEM research on low cost production techniques with practical lifetimes of the fuel cells of 5,000 hours. For the stationary use, especially in the chemi ...

PEM with Innovative low cost Core for Automotive applicatioN (PEMICAN)

Start date: Apr 1, 2011, End date: Mar 31, 2014,

"Up to now, much work has been performed on the catalyst but much on the active layers’ structure and on the two other major components (carbon and electrolyte) whereas they do have a major impact on the MEA’s performance and on Pt utilization.Based on this analysis, PEMICAN proposes to reduce the Pt loading for automotive application down to 0.15 gram of Pt per kW, by a twofold approach:1.to incr ...

Embedded Organic Memory Arrays (MOMA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

The advent of non-volatile flash memory -- silicon-based semiconductor memory that does not lose its data when the power is turned off -- revolutionized consumer electronics. Similar types of organic memory will play a pivotal role in the wide range of new market opportunities of flexible electronics based on organic transistor technology. Currently, these memory elements do not exist, thus formin ...
