In 2020 the Consortium formed by more than 10 Organizations started the project RECYCALISE. Led by the WAITRO Member, the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), RECYCALISE received €5.5 Million in funding from Horizon 2020.
RECYCALISE aims at enhancing the energy storage market through the novel and recyclable catalytic materials made of abundant elements. The innovative idea of RECYCALYSE consists of disrupting the energy storage through the development and manufacture of highly sustainable oxygen evolution catalysts, which will help reduce critical raw materials and therefore decrease CO2 emissions as well as reduce costs.
Some WAITRO Members are part of this inspiring project. The European Consortium was formed by by Fraunhofer ICT, Sustainable Innovations, Vertech Group, TWI, Danish Power Systems, Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg (Institute for Nonferrous Metallurgy and Purest Materials), Bern University, Prüfrex, HyCentA Research GmbH, and Accurec; led by the Danish Technological Institute.
WAITRO was glad to enable partnerships that work towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. RECYCALISE is a great example of how to promote the SDG 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns.
