AIMPLAS develops a highly efficient heating system for electric vehicles by using electrically conductive compounds


Heating and cooling systems are very important in terms of energy consumption in electric vehicles (up to 40 % of the total energy consumption). Therefore, developing a more efficient heating system will have a huge positive impact on the energy consumption, thus allowing the increase of the distance range of the vehicle.


AIMPLAS, together with other partners of the EU project JOSPEL, funded by the Horizon 2020 Programme under Grant Agreement no 653851, has carried out the research tasks to develop an innovative heating system consisting of heating panels, which can be placed in different parts of the car, thus reducing the energy consumption in a 30 % compared to conventional heating systems. This system is based on the Joule effect, in which electrical conductive materials produce heat when a voltage is applied.


Conductive fillers have been introduced in the thermoplastic polymer matrix by melt compounding in AIMPLAS’ pilot plant. According to Begoña Galindo, main


researcher at AIMPLAS for the project JOSPEL, “the processing parameters are very important in order to achieve the proper electrical properties with the lowest content of conductive filler”.


These innovative compounds can be used in items produced by injection moulding and extrusion for heating in vehicles and houses.


AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, is a non-profit research association located in Valencia (Spain). Its aim is to operate as a technological partner for enterprises from the plastics industry and thus offering them integral and customized solutions by coordinating research, development and innovation projects as well as technology services (analysis and testing, technical assistance, training as well as competitive and strategic intelligence).


In its brand-new compounding pilot plant, the centre has five co-rotating and counter- rotating twin-screw extruders, as well as a great variety of peripherals on a surface of 400 square meters.
