Altech Advanced Materials AG: EXPANSION OF ALTECHS RESEARCH LABORATORIES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LI-ION POUCH CELL BATTERIES
Heidelberg (pta027/29.08.2022/13:50 UTC+2)
- Expansion of Research and Development Laboratories in Perth, Australia
- Production of Li-ion pouch cell batteries planned
- Scale-up anode material production with an additional special oven for ceramic treatment
Altech Advanced Materials AG (AAM / the Company) (FRA: AMA1) announces that Altech Chemicals has expanded its Research and Development Laboratories in Perth, Western Australia as part of its collaboration with AAM to manufacture Silumina Anodes™, a coated anode composite material. The technical expansion enables the production of Li-ion batteries in pouch cell construction format and thus the application and research of Silumina Anodes™ for high-performance applications in electromobility.
With its own production and test facilities for pouch cells, applications of Silumina Anodes™ material can be tested under any thermal and physical conditions where, for example, the cell is operated outside the rated voltage and current limits. The pouch cell, a common design of a lithium-ion battery, is in a vacuum-packed thin plate shape in which many layers of thin cathode and anode electrodes are arranged. Conductive foil tabs welded to the electrode and sealed to the pouch carry the positive and negative terminals to the outside. The pouch cell design is currently mainly used in industry and electromobility.
Manufacturing a pouch cell with multiple layers requires more anode material and additional cell manufacturing assembly equipment. In particular, Altech has installed and commissioned a larger special ceramic treatment oven at its research and development laboratories in Perth. The new furnace is capable of producing larger quantities of Silumina Anodes™ per batch.
The new research facility will further accelerate the market entry of Silumina Anodes™.
