06 Oct: Pilot Action for Securing a Sustainable European Next Generation of Efficient RE-free magnets, H2020-SC5-2020-2

PASSENGER proposes improved strontium ferrite (Sr-ferrite) and a Manganese-Aluminum-Carbon (MnAlC) alloy as a substitute to guarantee a sustainable production of permanent magnets in Europe: an alternative without critical raw elements, based on resources that are widely available in Europe, with enough research to provide a solid base for a successful transition from the lab to the industrial production in our Pilot Plants. The project mission is to contribute to a green, sustainable Europe by developing an alternative to raw materials in the construction of permanent magnets and testing their performance in the electromobility sector. The project started in 2021 and will be finished in 2025. Currently the project is in the phase of fabrication if innovative materials for permanent magnets.
