IDEEL project: Industry-relevant scaling of laser drying
processes for lithium-ion batteries is within reach

Press Release of the Laserline GmbH /

Innovative process technology enables energy-efficient drying of anodes and cathodes while at the same time reducing space requirements. As part of the IDEEL research project (Implementation of Laser Drying Processes for Economical & Ecological Lithium-Ion Battery Production), project partners from industry and research are developing a laser drying process for the more climate-friendly and economical serial production of lithium-ion batteries. Now, for the first time, the process has been successfully scaled up to a coating and drying speed of 5 m/min in a continuous process, proving that industrial implementation is technically possible and economically viable.
