Dresden dry electrode coating technology allows environmentally friendly battery cell production

Economical energy storage for the electric car of tomorrow

Press release (No. 8) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden / 3.6.2019

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS in Dresden have developed a new production process with the aim of efficient and environmentally friendly future battery production. They coat the electrodes of the energy storage cells with a dry film instead of liquid chemicals. This simplified process saves energy and eliminates toxic solvents. A Finnish company is currently successfully testing the new IWS technology in practice.
