ARTS Energy chemistry and electrochemistry team expertise develops and improves performance of Nickel-Cadmium and Nickel-Metal hydride cells produced at the Nersac site. The electrochemical design of electrode is carried out mainly internally. We also work closely with BASF and suppliers of raw materials (nickel hydroxide, separator, alloys ….) to improve the performance of our nickel batteries. Research is still an important part of our R & D through partnerships. The objectives are:
The design team is responsible for defining the parameters of the tests (choice of electrode composition, weight, thickness …), assembling the cells (spiralling prototype or industrial welding connections, electrolyte filling and sealing the cell) and monitoring electrical performance. We make electrochemical analysis and electrical characterisation of the cells. This data can guide the choice of technology to ensure the best compromise of performance (electrical), quality and cost.
