Accelerated battery materials R&D

High throughput experimentation is a key to faster and more efficient R&D. It can give battery material producers and cell manufacturers a competitive edge by minimizing the time to market for new innovations.

hte is a leading provider for battery materials, catalysis and process development with more than 20 years experience in industrial R&D for global blue chip customers. Digitalization has always played an important role in our offering and is critical for the parallelization and automation of laboratory workflows. Our solutions are based on our unique high throughput mindset and are always tailored to the customers specific requirements. Our offering spans from consulting and joint developments to validated hardware products.

The aim will always be to allow for:

  • Preparation and screening of large sample numbers withscalable unit operations
  • Reduction of time and costs
  • Fully automated operation, sampling and data tracking
  • High degree of reproducibility and flexibility

hte’s cathode material workflow illustrates our R&D approach

Closing the circle from material preparation to cell testing.

The performance of battery materials in a cell is a function of numerous interdependent parameters. Automated laboratory workflows allow the recording of huge amounts of process data during synthesis and screening to comprehensively describe these parameters. The key to successful and target oriented research is in the management of this data. hte provides tailor made software solutions to make this data available for advanced analysis and value creation.
