Millor will manufacture cobalt-free lithium-ion batteries in Europe

The COBRA (CObalt-free Batteries for FutuRe Automotive Applications), a European consortium that aims to develop a new cobalt-free lithium-ion battery technology, has chosen Millor Battery to make the prototypes and first batteries.

COBRA and Millor Battery seek to reduce the proportion of critical raw materials in batteries without compromising energy and energy performance. Among these raw materials is cobalt, which is expensive, scarce and not found in Europe. 

The first functional battery prototypes are expected in early 2022 and the results of the project will be made public by the end of 2023.
