This joint proposal between the group of Prof. Park, ETHZ and Prof. Fromm, Uni Fribourg, deals with the development of new carbon-nanotube-based membranes as well as electrolytes that will be used in the context of lithium (metal)-water or metal-air batteries. These batteries possess an enormous theoretical energy density of ca. 10'000 Wh/kg, of which only a fraction can be exploited with today's technology. Within the frame of the SCCER Heat and Energy Storage to which we contribute in Work Package 1, we will develop new Li-water and Li-air batteries by developing new membranes and electrolytes which allow the safe use of such systems and excluding unwanted side-reactions.
