BMBF project “SoLiS” explores innovative lithium-sulfur battery concepts

Solid-state battery to leap into industrial application

Press release (Nr. 14) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

The research project “SoLiS – Development of Lithium-Sulfur Solid State Batteries in Multilayer Pouch Cells”, which started in July 2021, aims to transfer a promising battery concept from basic research into an industrial application. Thanks to high storage capacities and low material costs of sulfur, this cell technology potentially enables the construction of very lightweight and cost-effective batteries. Under the leadership of the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS in Dresden, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding five partners from science and industry with a total of nearly 1.8 million euro. The research results could, for example, enable applications in electric aviation.
