From the Instituto Tecnológico de la Energía (ITE) we have the objective of facilitating the process of sustainable and efficient energy transition to companies and society.


Development of new generation cathodes by means of printing deposition techniques


The CATIM project addresses the synthesis of new structured materials for use in future generation cathodes in lithium batteries. The development of the electrodes and with them the cathode marks the potential of the future cell, the performance of which depends primarily on the electrochemically active materials.  The new generation of high-energy lithium-ion batteries requires innovative cathode materials with greater capacity and/or working potential.

It is intended to address three challenges:

  1. Development of new next-generation cathode materials for spinel-based lithium batteries.
  2. Test new manufacturing systems for cell components, such as different printing technologies.

Development of a lithium-solid cell proof of concept

Development of cathode materials with selected properties for solid lithium cells; inks or pastes of these cathode materials suitable for electrode deposition by inkjet and screen printing; components deposited by printing and electrochemical results of a prototype solid lithium cell with the developed and assembled electrodes. Specifically, and in line with the stated milestones, the projected results are as follows: 

  • Future-generation cathode materials 
  • Inks/ pastes for cathodes, silkscreen and inkjet printing 
  • Electrodes and components developed by inkjet printing and screen printing. 
  • Proof of concept of a next-generation lithium-solid cell. 


2022 Results 

  • LNMO type cathode material. This material has been evaluated by several characterization techniques such as TGA, XRD, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), BET and shows a spinel structure of LNMO without unreacted starting material content. 
  • Analysis of various solid-state battery components. Analysis of four different ceramic materials and their XRD characteristics, SEM scanning microscopy and particle size.
