Argonne scientists and engineers work on a new frontier, pioneering a broad suite of new technologies to synthesize and process complex materials for a myriad of applications, including:
- High-capacity, long-lived, safe, recyclable, and grid-compatible batteries
- Membranes and sorbents that are selective and resistant to fouling and degradation in energy-intensive applications
- Materials that are resilient to mechanical, thermal, and chemical stress
- Materials for the circular economy, designed with recycling, upcycling, and end-of-life in mind
- A secure supply chain of critical materials from diverse sources, substitutes and recycling
In the 26,000 square-foot Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF), researchers develop scalable manufacturing processes for advanced materials. By leveraging co-located scientific user facilities for in situ measurements, real-time analysis, artificial intelligence, and modeling, Argonne accelerates process development and scale-up so that promising new materials can go to market faster.
Partnerships with companies, universities, and other entities further accelerate the transition of new materials invented at the lab — and elsewhere — into commercial applications.
