We currently have about 580 employees, who carry out research and development in our core competences of chemical processes, energy systems, explosive technology, drive systems, polymer technology and composite materials.
We focus on the scalability of processes and the transfer of research results from laboratory scale to pilot plant scale and in some cases to pilot-level application.
The research group “Batteries” in the Department of Applied Electrochemistry is working on development and characterization of lithium and sodium ion battery systems, solid-state batteries and battery safety tests (on cell and modular level).
Main tasks and responsibilities in the project:
Fraunhofer ICT will work on the production of lithium hydroxide from solutions derived from the upstream process of geothermal and continental brines from our Partners EnBW and KIT.
