Topic Close-up #2

Symposium A04: Advanced Manufacturing Methods for Energy Storage Devices 2

Symposium Focus: The Advanced Manufacturing Methods for Energy Storage Devices 2 symposium will be held at the 236th ECS meeting in Atlanta, GA. It is the second installment of the series and was first held at the 232nd ECS meeting in fall 2017. The organizers are expecting up to three times as many presentations as the first installment, and there will be a variety of invited speakers from industry, universities, and government laboratories.

This symposium will cover energy efficient, high-speed, and smart manufacturing methods that are rapidly being developed for the production of advanced energy storage electrodes and full cells, including the integration of 3-D printing and additive manufacturing processes. Novel coating architectures are being designed that include patterned electrodes with 2-D and 3-D features, and electrode processing methodologies are being developed that significantly reduce or eliminate the amount of organic solvent, or completely eliminate the liquid phase altogether. Cell manufacturing methods and associated componentry are being researched that significantly reduce the mass of inactive material (binders, separators, current collectors, etc.). When combined, these technologies reduce both the operating and plant capital expenditures while simultaneously improving cell performance, energy density, and power density. (more…)
