Leading chemical company BASF will discuss trends in battery manufacturing and the impact on electric vehicle growth at Argus Batteries in Automotives 2018, to be held on 18-19 September in Wiesbaden, Germany.


The talk will be presented by BASF Senior Manager of Mobility Martin Rheinfurth, who is responsible for the company's mobility-related industry advocacy and environmental policy. Focusing on lithium-ion, cathode chemistries and anode technology, Martin will discuss how to incorporate high-conductivity garnet lithium-ion electroydes, into tailored multi-layered microstructures. Cell performance, safety and surface films will also be addressed.

Other highlights from the presentation by BASF will include an assessment of lithium metal anodes and garnet electrolyte-based batteries with different cathode chemistries, insight into tackling energy density targets through higher energy cathodes, and a look at higher nickel content and higher voltage for the parallel development of electrodes with enhanced stability.
