Landshut University of Applied Sciences (LUAS) has a well-equipped battery laboratory under the direction of Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Pettinger at the Technology Centre for Energy. A complete process line is available along the value chain for the semi-automated cell production of lithium-ion batteries on a laboratory and pilot scale. All production steps are integrated, in particular mixing and coating up to electrical cell tests. It is possible to produce electrode coatings with all common anode and cathode materials with running lengths from 1 to 50 m. Manufacturing processes for water-based and solvent-based binder systems are implemented. There are battery test equipment available to perform electrochemical characterization at half-cell, cell and module level. In addition to the electrochemical characterization, a high-resolution field emission scanning electron microscope and an X-ray tomograph are available for characterization.
Moreover, research is carried out at system level in the field of energy storage, intelligent energy networks, energy efficiency and energy systems.
In the joint project ÖkoTroP of the ProZell cluster, Landshut UAS validates the quality of the dry-coated electrodes and optimizes the dry-coating processes in cooperation with the project partners by adapting process parameters and components. To validate the dry coating methods, the manufactured electrodes are installed in half and full cells, electrochemically characterized and referenced with standard electrodes.
Furthermore, the existing process know-how for the production of Li-Ion cells will be used for the ecological and economic evaluation of the dry coating processes in order to investigate the cost advantages.
