Battery Development Laboratory
IFE has a well-established infrastructure and facilities for R&D on rechargeable batteries and battery materials. The focus is on lithium-ion batteries, and the Battery Material Development Laboratory houses a collection of equipment for synthesis, optmiziation and development of materials, electrode preparation, as well as cell assembly and characterization.
The Battery Material Development Laboratory can offer:
- Extensive experience with silicon anode in the lithium-ion battery, with transfer values to other battery types
- Electrode preparation
- Electrolyte testing
- Development and testing of binders
- Cell assembly
- Coin cells, pouch cells, 3-electrode cells and full cells available
The R&D focus of the Laboratory is on new electrode material for next generation batteries with a higher energy density, lower cost and sustainable processing.
