Bridging the Gap Between Research and Commercialization
The procedures used to make small, research sample of materials are typically not suitable for large scale production. Manufacturing processes for the newly discovered advanced materials must be scalable to facilitate the transition from basic research to commercial application.
This program has been developed to provide a systematic approach to process R&D and scale-up, and to provide sufficient quantities of advanced battery materials for industrial evaluation. Ongoing work in the interim electrolyte and cathode materials scale-up labs and an overview of the Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF) will be presented.
