Here you can find some information about European projects funded, as Fatigue4Light, under the call “LC-GV-06-2020 Advanced light materials and their production processes for automotive applications” of the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Union. These projects are working on the development of solutions with the objective to promote a more sustainable and greener mobility and Electric Vehicles construction, based on eco-design and circular economy values.
Recently, Fatigue4Light project has initiated different cooperation and collaboration activities between these projects in order to find synergies and maximise the project’s impact.
Light materials for electric vehicles
The LEVIS EU-funded project aims to develop lightweight components for electric vehicles using eco-design and circular economy approaches. To achieve this, the consortium uses multi-material solutions based on carbon fibre thermoplastic composites optimally integrated with metals, which will be produced using cost-effective and scalable manufacturing technologies.
Supporting the Electric Vehicle revolution through maximising EV range and end-of-life vehicle recovery through optimisation of recycled plastics and advanced light materials
The REVOLUTION project has the objective to demonstrate automotive components by using polymer solutions which feature optimised recycled materials to increase light-weighting opportunities that extend the range and efficiency of Electric Vehicles and improve end-of-life separation of components facilitating a proper dismantling and materials’ reuse, recovery and recycling.
Lightweight Aluminium Metal matrix nano-composites and validation in Green Vehicles
The FLAMINGo European project proposes a novel industrial manufacturing route for the efficient production of high-performance lighweight Aliminium composite materials thanks to a novel metallurgical and forming combined approach for making automotive parts for Green Vehicles.
Advanced Light Materials and processes for the eco-design of electric vehicles
The ALMA’s ambition is to make electric cars more sustainable, lightweight, and efficient through an eco-design approach using advanced materials. ALMA’s strength is in its cooperation and altruistic approach for the people and planet. The project’s developments will decrease the environmental impacts of electric vehicles by reducing the weight of the structure, saving materials and energy thereby reducing CO2 emissions.
