Description

Argonne?s Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF) enables engineers to develop manufacturing processes for producing advanced battery materials in sufficient quantity for industrial testing. Central to the facility, it includes high-hazard ?Group H? occupancy pilot- and high-bay laboratory spaces, enabling the process development and scale up of batch and continuous production of the necessary quantities of materials for subsequent validation and/or evaluation in prototypes cells. The labs are equipped to quickly scale and validate battery chemistries from bench-top experiments to production of bulk quantities of battery materials for prototype testing. As an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified laboratory, Argonne?s new MERF facility adheres to the internationally recognized standards for business practices and environmental management. The facility is supported by the US Department of Energy, Office of Vehicle Technologies.
