Faraday funded history project kicks off



Our HISTORY Project has recently kicked off and our team are getting stuck in to the environmental and circularity assessment of the solid state battery (SSB) under development.


The HISTORY project will focus on the development of a multi-layer, solid state pouch cell to automotive levels of performance. HSSMI will lead Life cycle and End of Life assessment activities, with the goal of ensuring sustainability is embedded in Ilika’s solid state battery cell.



The kick-off meeting for project HISTORY took place on February 27th at Ilika’s headquarters in Southampton, UK. Along with Ilika, also in attendance were team members from Nexeon, HSSMI, CPI, University College London, University of St Andrews and Imperial College London, as well as our monitoring service provider, MSP (previously known as “monitoring officers”) and members of Innovate UK.


The meeting was in part an opportunity for all partners to physically meet in the same place and start this 24-month collaborative project with a common understanding. After all, we are going to spend a lot of time working together in the next 2 years.
