High quality data for batteries to accelerate green transition


HiQ-LCA Workshop on Life Cycle Assessment

Meet HiQ-LCA in Bordeaux

The EIT RawMaterials-funded project HiQ-LCA proudly presents a workshop on “Better Battery Data – Collaborative data generation for high-quality battery LCA” with Prof Guido Sonnemann from the University of Bordeaux.

This event will include presentations and discussions on regulation policy, data management, and best practices in the battery industry.

The workshop will take place from 2 pm to 5 pm on the University of Bordeaux Campus, or join us online.

HiQ-LCA virtual stakeholder meeting

Better battery data – Collaborative data generation for High-Quality battery LCA

HiQ-LCA invites industry stakeholders to a virtual meet-and-greet with our partners. We will introduce the HiQ-LCA project and discuss your potential as data suppliers, our methods of data processing, and the benefits of a collaboration between academy and industry. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Andreas Bittner (andreas.bittner@lithium-institute.eu).

The meeting was held online on November 30th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

Press release

High quality LCA database and services to support green batteries transition – European project tackles first actions

Individual mobility must become greener – this could briefly summarize the requirements for the future development of vehicles. The European Union, with its Green Deal, has set a goal of net zero emission cars, which is driving the growing market for electric vehicles. However, electrical mobility is often criticized for the environmental impact of the battery value chain and insufficient recycling activities. The European HiQ-LCA project aims to change this situation by enabling more reliable Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) based on better data and therefore, by empowering stakeholders to find the best starting points for greater sustainability in their production and recycling processes.

HIQ-LCA in a nutshell

What data are the so-called Life Cycle Assessments (LCA for short) based on, how up-to-date are they and do they really reflect the current status quo for the ecological footprint of lithium-ion batteries? The HiQ-LCA project team has asked itself these questions and wants to fill the gaps with an advanced semantic database s and new validated data sets. Twelve well-known companies and research institutions will build a battery LCA database s and related battery-specific services for companies who are operating along the value chain and who want to reliably determine the carbon footprint of their processes and products due to the new Battery Regulation of the EU.
