Project Announcement: NMP-free Li Ion Electrode Development and Manufacturing

The project will develop battery manufacturing technology without N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP) in electrodes, and incorporate these electrodes into 6T modules. NMP-free electrode batteries must meet or exceed baseline battery performance as defined in 6T Li-ion Battery Specification MIL-PRF 32565, at 15% reduced cell cost. Prototype cells produced at a battery production line with the NMP-free technology shall be delivered to TARDEC for testing and evaluation.

Those interested in participating in this project should contact Lisa Stobierski, lisas@ncms.org by November 15, 2017.  We encourage participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
