Kickoff meeting of the H2020 Cell3Ditor Project coordinated by IREC

The Nanoionics and Fuel Cells Group of IREC coordinates the H2020 European project "Cost-effective and flexible 3D printed Solid Oxide Fuel Cells stacks for commercial applications- Cell3Ditor" within the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. The main goal of the Cell3Ditor project is to develop a 3D printing technology for the industrial production of multilayer multimaterial ceramic devices such as Solid Oxide Fuel Cells. The project will cover research and innovation in all the stages of the industrial value chain: inks formulation, 3D printer development, ceramics consolidation and system integration. The 3D printed power devices will show unfair advantages compared to conventionally manufactured systems including joint-less devices and cost-effective and simplified manufacturing processes.

The project is product-driven and involves five SMEs from five different EU countries (Promethean Particles -UK, 3DCeram -France, FAE -Spain, SAAN EnerGI -Sweden and HyGeAR -The Nederlands) and three research groups: IREC and ULL in Spain and DTU in Denmark.
