High performance batteries, made from cheap and abundant materials are of utmost importance. To master this major challenge, control of interfaces during materials formation and operation is needed.
The DECHEMA Infoday “Electrochemically active interfaces in batteries”, to be held on May 13, 2020 in Duisburg at Fraunhofer-inHaus-Zentrum, focuses and discusses these important aspects of interfaces:
The change in automotive industry towards electric vehicles will become one of the biggest societal transitions within the next decades. High performance batteries with long-term stability during charging and discharging, made from cheap and abundant materials are of utmost importance. To master this major challenge, control of interfaces during materials formation and operation is needed. It covers both, solid-liquid interfaces in conventional lithium-ion batteries as well as solid-solid interfaces in all-solid-state batteries.
All information can be downloaded in the Conference announcement
We are concerned about the health of our conference participants and staff. According to the public authorities, at present there is no danger involved in attending events in Germany. Current information can be found on the web site of the Federal Ministry of Health via the following link: https://www.bundesgesundheitsministerium.de/coronavirus.html (in German).
DECHEMA is in contact with the health authorities and will implement their recommendations and orders immediately. In consultation with the respective event location, cleaning measures for highly frequented areas (door handles, handrails etc.) will be intensified.
Furthermore, our staff will provide disinfectant wipes, which you can ask for at the conference reception desk. They will also have information about doctors and medical contact points in case of suspected cases.
DECHEMA is closely following the developments. Should the situation change and further recommendations be made by the authorities, we will react promptly.
