DEFACTO PARTICIPATES IN THE INTERNATIONAL BATTERY PRODUCTION CONFERENCEdefacto
On November 7-9, our colleagues from CIDETEC and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) attended the International Battery Production Conference in Germany.
There, Clara Ganuza, energy storage researcher at CIDETEC showcased the initiative in the framework of Bridging battery performance ageing and electrode calendering parameters through model-based estimation of tortuosity.
Additionally, Benjamin Kellers gave a talk about optimization of battery microstructures and their electrolyte filling process using pore-scale simulations where he explained a simulation based on a workflow that couples a multi-phase flow lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) to a pore network model (PNM). This coupling is key because it joins forces of the accurate and detailed but computationally demanding LBM simulations and the simple and approximate but performant PNMs.
Since 2018, the International Battery Production Conference has been dedicated to production-related topics including recycling, circular economy and Supply Chains fostering the transition of the mobility system and establishing an international exchange and networking platform that addresses the latest developments in the area of battery production.
