ONLINE-SEMINAR Green Batteries Through Computational Life Cycle Engineering


Join us for our online seminar on GREEN BATTERIES THROUGH COMPUTATIONAL LIFE CYCLE ENGINEERING (March 28th, 2022 from 9 am to 4:30 pm at Advanced Battery Conference). The seminar is organized by Felipe Cerdas and Alexander Kaluza and includes multiple battery experts from Battery Lab Factory (BLB) at Technische Universität Braunschweig.

The seminar provides an overview of the state of research regarding sustainability assessment along the life cycle of traction batteries. The method of computational life cycle engineering will be introduced and discussed and related to specific issues in the field of traction batteries and electromobility. The programme includes:
· Introduction to Life Cycle Assessment, Social Life Cycle Assessment and Life Cycle Engineering, in particular
· Overview of the state of the art in life cycle environmental assessment of traction batteries and battery electric vehicles (Raw materials and sustainable supply chains, Manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries, Use stage of electric vehicles and influence of electricity mix, Sustainable recycling pathways for lithium-ion batteries)
· Computational Life Cycle Engineering for traction batteries including an application example
· Consolidation of findings and discussion of pathways for further development of sustainable traction batteries.

Special Issue “Particle Design and Processing for Battery Production”


With the very fast-growing markets of electrical vehicles (EVs), it is absolutely necessary to improve battery design and the long process chain of battery production, including pack and module, cells, electrodes, and particularly functional particles as active material in anode and cathode electrodes. For the future battery generations, the design and production of solid electrolyte particles for all solid-state batteries are of special interest. Improvements in active and passive material particles and their processing should result in batteries with a high level of safety, increased environmental friendliness, and lower cost. This Special Issue (SI) aims to present the latest studies on all aspects related to the design, synthesis, and fabrication of anode and cathode active material particles from primary and secondary material resources as well as electronic and ionic conductive particles (carbon additives and solid electrolyte particles). Moreover, particles’ behavior during the processing of anode and cathode slurries, electrodes, and cells of different battery generations as well as safety concerns via experimental and modeling/simulation investigations are in the focus of this SI. Additionally, studies about lifecycle analysis and cost of battery material particles and their production and processing are welcome. The SI includes not only lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) but also other batteries with potential for commercial production and marketing.
