Micromeritics collaborates with Fraunhofer for battery cell production training

US-headquartered Micromeritics Instrument, a manufacturer of systems for measuring density, surface area and porosity, powder rheology, and catalyst activity, is partnering with German battery research institute and production facility Fraunhofer FFB, which is part of the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance. The collaboration focuses on educating future scientists and engineers and the production of training content for those employed in the European battery value chain.

Such Micromeritics technologies as the TriStar BET Surface Area Analyzer will be employed in the materials characterization lab at Fraunhofer’s new battery cell production site in Münster to develop methods for characterizing rapidly evolving battery materials.

“Material and particle characterization are crucial for performance and quality assessments during our lithium and sodium-ion battery production,” said Jonas Henschel, Fraunhofer’s Head of Department Product and Process Development. “By analyzing promising new materials as well as solid-state battery material, we can scale up the synthesis and production process of next-generation battery systems.”
