Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB
Renewable energies and electromobility are to be significantly expanded in Germany; these and other new technologies require increasingly powerful, secure and sustainable energy storage systems. The commercial battery cells required are supposed to come from Germany in future. With its application-oriented research and technology transfer to large-scale production, the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB located in Münster builds the urgently needed bridge between research and series production. The project, which is unique in Germany, is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). MEET Battery Research Center at the University of Münster, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, other institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Chair of Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components (PEM) of RWTH Aachen, and Forschungszentrum Jülich are involved in this facility, which is unique in Germany. With their work on the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Battery Cell Production FFB, MEET scientists and the involved partner are creating the conditions for battery cells "made in Germany" to be produced in large series.
