The Centre National de Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) is a government-funded research organization, under the administrative authority of France’s Ministry of Research. With 33.000 staff, the CNRS is active in all fields of knowledge, drawing 1144 research groups in France and in the world. CNRS is active in the research for redox flow batteries, through the creation in 2019 of a research group dedicated to this technology (GDR Redox Flow).
CNRS is represented in the project by three research groups associated with Université de Lorraine:
1) Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Microbiology for Materials and Environment (LCPME)
2) Institut Jean Lamour (IJL)
3) Reactions and Chemical Engineering Laboratory (LRGP)

We participate in HIGREEW, because this project gives an opportunity to perform quantitative analysis of electrochemical reactions of a various range of electrode materials with a new generation of organic electrolytes. It is also a great opportunity to evaluate the produced materials at a pilot scale and to analyze the life cycle of this new battery.
