Projet R&D COBRA

Cobalt-free batteries for the mobility of the future

Cobalt is an essential component in the production of the main types of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries, such as the rechargeable batteries used to power portable electronic devices and electric vehicles.

The forced transition to electric mobility is widening the gap between supply and demand and increasing the price of cobalt. However, the substitution of cobalt, a rare and expensive element in Li-ion batteries, although technically possible, is not yet effective. The EU-funded COBRA project aims to reverse this situation by developing a cobalt-free cathode. Involving 3 universities, 7 research and technology organisations, as well as 4 SMEs and 5 companies, this project covers the entire value chain of the European battery industry.
