GREENCAP will realize a novel type of sustainable and high-energy density supercapacitors, which exploit layered 2D materials, including graphene and MXenes as electrode materials, and ionic liquids as high-voltage electrolyte.
Uniresearch Role

UNR supports the day-to-day management of the GREENCAP project, which includes financial and project administration. Next to the management activities in GREENCAP, UNR is also leading the tasks on dissemination, communication and exploitation activities.

GREENCAP aims to create new, high-performance energy storage devices that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. The project will use innovative, two-dimensional materials and ionic liquids to create cylindrical supercapacitors with their own management systems. These devices will have a high energy density (more than 20 Wh/kg or 16 Wh/L), a superior power density (more than 1000 W/kg or 500 W/L), and a long cycle life (more than 1 million charge/discharge cycles). GREENCAP will also eliminate the use of critical raw materials (CRMs), and will be developed to reach technology readiness level 6 (TRL6).
