A new EU project called E-MAGIC (European Magnesium Interactive Battery Community) that was recently funded with 6.5 million euros, will focus on the development of a new type of magnesium-based battery for electrified vehicles, among other uses.

The project, which runs until the end of 2022 and is coordinated by the Spanish Fundación Cidetec, brings together the expertise of a total of ten scientific institutions, including the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU), a research institute founded by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in cooperation with the University of Ulm and the partners DLR and ZSW.

More powerful, cheaper and safer than lithium-ion batteries: These are the targets that the scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and their cooperation partners hope for from the magnesium battery project. Magnesium as an anode material enables a higher energy density and would also be much safer. “Magnesium is a promising material and one of the most important candidates in our post-lithium strategy,” says Professor Maximilian Fichtner, Deputy Director of the Helmholtz Institute Ulm (HIU).
