Battery Tuesdays 2022

Batteries are the key enabler for emission-free mobility, renewable based energy systems, advanced robotics and mobile medical equipment. The iBAT association represents industry, authorities and research institutions along the complete value chain from manufacturing to recycling. iBAT is the national platform enabling and promoting battery-based innovations in Switzerland. The goal of iBAT is to accelerate the path from innovative ideas to final products, supporting success and competitiveness of the Swiss industry.

The iBAT association wants to close the emerging gap between science, economy and authorities around the topic of battery applications and technologies and offers its members a platform for networking, knowledge exchange and innovation promotion.

Battery Tuesdays support knowledge transfer and are one of several activities iBAT conducts with the goal of networking stakeholders and promoting innovation.

On the first Tuesday of each month, research members present their competencies and infrastructure in a one-hour online event. After the presentation, short questions can be asked – for further information, the iBAT office or the research institutes can be contacted directly.

In 2022, iBAT’s network partners will also have the opportunity to present their company, its competencies, products and services.

Upcoming event

  • Networking Event Series – iBAT Battery Tuesdays on October 4 (16:00 – 17:00) presents:

    L-Europe AG – Ultra-high Membrane Perforation by using Infrared Laser Application

    L-Europe AG, a Swissed based company, is a manufacturer of a new type of high-performance permeable membrane. Separators are key components within Li-ion batteries. The foil is placed between the anode and cathode to prevent electrical short circuits and to allow the smooth transport of ionic charge carriers. The heart of L-Europe’s patented breakthrough technology is its heating system. This method not only achieves an ultra-high perforation but also creates a separator with better performance, reliability, and safety.

    Compared to other production methods, this method can be an enable to reduce overall manufacturing costs and improve battery charging times at the same time. Last but not least, the production process is more sustainable as only water-based solution is used, instead of highly toxic etching processes.
