The company Rimac Automobili, of which we wrote in our second BRACKET Newsletter, is the partner in the project “European Battery Innovation” approved for funding by the European Commission in January 2021 in the total amount of 2.9 billion EUR.
The project will develop new technologies related to battery production: from the extraction of raw materials, through the design and production of battery cells and assemblies, to recycling and disposal in the circular economy, with a strong emphasis on sustainability. Innovations are expected in the new chemical composition of cells, new production processes, and other innovations in the value chain of batteries.
Rimac Automobili produces batteries for hyper electric cars for which it is globally known.
In addition to empowerment, growth and employment in the company Rimac Automobili, the project will enable cooperation with a number of stakeholders, including educational institutions in Croatia.
