Micromeritics launches technical collaboration with Fraunhofer research institution for battery cell production FFB

Micromeritics Instrument Corporation and Fraunhofer FFB, part of the Fraunhofer Battery Alliance, announced a technical collaboration focused on the education and training of future scientists and engineers.

As part of this collaboration, Micromeritics technologies such as the TriStar BET Surface Area Analyzer will be deployed in the materials characterization lab at the new Fraunhofer FFB battery cell production site »PreFab« in Münster.

Fraunhofer and Micromeritics scientists will collaborate to develop methods to characterize rapidly evolving battery materials, and training content for individuals employed across the battery value chain in Germany and Europe.

Material and particle characterization are crucial for performance and quality assessments during our lithium and sodium ion battery production. By analyzing promising new materials as well as solid state battery material, we can scale up the synthesis and production process of next generation battery systems. This collaboration with Micromeritics extends our aspirations for a deep understanding of battery materials and its interaction with product characteristics.

—Jonas Henschel, Ph.D., Fraunhofer FFB’s Head of Department Product and Process Development

Micromeritics Instrument Corporation is a leading manufacturer of high-performance systems to measure density, surface area and porosity, powder rheology and catalyst activity.



The collaboration aims to develop methods for characterizing rapidly evolving battery materials, as well as training content for individuals employed across the battery value chain in Germany and basket random. This suggests that the partnership will contribute to advancing knowledge and expertise in the field of battery technology.
