Advanced Light materials for sustainable Electrical Vehicles by Integration of eco-design and circular economy Strategies


Detalles del proyecto

Abbreviation: LEVIS

Start date: 2021-02-01End date: 2024-01-31

Budget: 5.570.581 €

Centre bugdet: 299.000 €

Funding: H2020: €299.000


By adopting an eco- and circular design concept from the design phase to the end-of-life stage, LEVIS project will develop, verify and demonstrate lightweight components and/or structures in electrical vehicles. Enhanced sustainability, improved raw material use, energy and cost efficiency, reduced weight yet high structural integrity and reliability are expected to be achieved. LEVIS envisages the use of multi-material solutions based on fibre reinforced thermoplastic composites integrated with metals, which will be produced using cost-effective and scalable manufacturing technologies. The benefit and competitiveness will be showcased through three real-case demonstrators: a suspension control arm, a battery holding set and a cross car beam.
