Meeting of the Cell3Ditor Project in Nottingham (Promethean Particles Ltd. Headquarters)

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 (SOFC). After 29 months, hybrid SLA+Robocasting multiceramic 3D printer has been developed and it is being used for the fabrication of SOFC prototypes. Moreover, inkjet printing is being used for the fabrication of functional SOFC components. Electrochemical performance of the fabricated products is being tested. During the meeting the consortium discussed on the next actions to end up with the fabrication of industrial scale SOFCs.

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.
