The next battery generation is (also) being created in Graz

CEO Herbert Schein, VARTA AG © VARTA AG

In this case the globally operating company relies on know-how from Austria. VARTA is an innovation and technology leader in the field of lithium-ion-micro batter cells and operates its own research and innovation hub in Graz. VARTA Micro Innovation is a joint subsidiary of VARTA Microbattery GmbH and the Graz University of Technology.

The research facility in Austria is considered to be an important factor for the future. The EU Commission agreed to an Austrian funding of the project within the context of an International Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI). "The additional funding will make it possible for us to further intensify and accelerate our research in the field of lithium-ion technology", states Herbert Schein, CEO of VARTA AG.

The priority in the coming years will be to further increase the energy density of battery cells and thus fulfil the prerequisites for high-performance batteries "made in Europe". Furthermore, another challenge is to reduce the CO₂ footprint and use of critical raw materials such as cobalt as much as possible or avoid it altogether. The research team will intensively focus on material and process technologies and also further optimise the research process itself through far-reaching digitalisation.
