AIMPLAS plans more efficient transformation processes for battery casing composites

The VETERIA21 Project is aimed at developing new and more efficient transformation processes for thermoplastic composites used in EV battery casings.

With funding from Spain’s Valencia Regional Government and implementation by Spain-based plastics company AIMPLAS, the VETERIA21 project aims to replace metal casings with thermoplastic composites. The company says thermoplastic composites provide several advantages, including weight reduction, “adaptability to different manufacturing processes, short manufacturing cycles, ability to be combined with other materials, weldability, easy recyclability and adaptability to the circular economy.”
