Welcome to the second week of the course!
In the previous module, we learned that there is a growing need of batteries with increased energy density and longer run times. Lithium-ion batteries are becoming crucial for both the industry and the society, and the increased demand that this entails requires a production at a much larger scale.
To understand everything that’s involved in large-scale battery production it is important to look at the supply chain and the manufacturing processes in the facilities. We also need to understand how much the lithium industry has evolved over the years.
With Yann Laot, Strategic Marketing Manager at SAFT, a battery company part of the Total group, we will dive into the lithium-ion battery cell and acquire insights in the manufacturing process of batteries, to finally understand where the industry is today regarding lithium-ion batteries.
