Main results of the ASTRABAT project

EU Horizon 2020 ASTRABAT project, part of which is carried out at the Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT project manager: Leszek Niedzicki), is nearing the end of its four-year path to develop new high-performance all-solid-state lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles.
The project's critical work and innovation have been summarised in five informative packs on various technical aspects – from the electrolyte tailorisation to the fluorine-free ionic liquid plasticizers.

An innovative way to remove radioactive cesium isotope

How can the toxicity of cesium, which is frequently used but dangerous for people and the environment, be dealt with? What can help are nanomaterials containing sumanene. Artur Kasprzak, PhD, from the Faculty of Chemistry at the Warsaw University of Technology, is working on it. He is the only researcher in the world who specializes in such a use of this compound.
