Partners introduce GIGABAT in Germany to discuss heating and drying technologies for batteries

NEWS

GIGABAT was presented as an exemple of new technologies in the annual meeting of DECHEMA for industrial experts in Magdeburg, Germany

On March 11th to 13th the city of Magdeburg hosted an important event for experts involved in industrial processes especially related to heating and drying systems, but not only: the Annual Meeting of the DECHEMA Professional Group for Heat & Mass Transfer and Drying Technology

Many GIGABAT partners from the Institute for Particle Technology at TU-Braunschweig, Jagenberg, and Excelitas Noblelight, took part in it.

During the event, Payam Hashemi (TUB) delivered a presentation introducing the EU Project GIGABAT, its objectives, partners, and key areas of focus. He then explained the roll-to-roll drying and post-drying technologies for producing Li-ion battery electrodes in Gigafactories. The presentation was followed by a highly productive discussion with the audience, who had extensive expertise in drying technologies.

Max von Horstig (TUB) presented a brief overview of electrode drying technologies in Li-ion battery electrode production, and shared the most recent findings on electrode drying using inductive heating in pilot plants under the NEWBIE project.

GIGABAT focuses on many aspects of Li-ion battery production, including electrode drying and post-drying. Accordingly, Dr. Hashemi highlighted the mutual benefits in establishing connections with DECHEMA and the valuable utilization of the community’s expertise to address challenges in electrode drying and post-drying within Gigafactories, a focus area of the ongoing GIGABAT project, alongside various other aspects of Li-ion battery production.
