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.
