Closing the gap in the battery market

In Europe, the market for electric cars is growing particularly fast. Now is the time to quickly build local production capacities for battery cells and systems. The Dürr Group is benefiting from the multi-billion-euro investments in new plants.

The automotive market is all charged up. In 2021, nearly one fifth of all car buyers in the European Union opted for a passenger car with an electric drive. Experts predict that sales, particularly of vehicles powered exclusively by batteries, will continue to see strong growth. By 2030, the market for all-electric cars is set to rise to 8 million vehicles per year in Europe.

Until now, the batteries for Europe’s electric cars have come primarily from Asia. However, transporting lithium-ion batteries over long distances is time-consuming and costly. Many producers would like local and reliable supply chains, and the EU is offering financial assistance for building production sites. This is why automotive manufacturers and their suppliers want to create huge production capacities in Europe. The storage capacity of all the batteries produced in 2030 is expected to reach a total of 800 gigawatt hours — this also includes plug-in hybrids.

In 2030, in terms of sales, Europe will be the world’s second largest market for electric vehicles after China.

Production capacity for battery cells in Europe (in gigawatt hours)

The core technology in battery production is the coating of electrodes: Graphite is mostly used at the anode end, while the cathode end is usually coated with a precisely blended mix of nickel, manganese, cobalt, and lithium. These materials make energy storage possible in the first place. Through its own solutions and its partnership with the Japanese plant engineering firm Techno Smart, Dürr is offering all relevant technologies for the coating of electrodes.

Order for German battery plant

Dürr’s coating technology will soon be used by the German battery producer → Cellforce. This company, in which Porsche has a 50% stake, is currently building a battery production facility in the Swabian city of Reutlingen. This is where electrodes will be coated using system technology developed and patented by Dürr. The new process enables both sides of the electrode foil to be coated simultaneously, thus achieving a particularly high level of quality.

 

From a single source

From the cell through to integration into the vehicle: The Dürr Group offers a wide range of technologies and know-how around the battery.

Cell manufacture:
End-to-end solutions for electrode coating, including drying and solvent recovery

Module assembly:
Modular system for the application of glues, sealants, and fillers as well as assembly and testing technology for battery modules

Battery systems:
Assembly and testing technology for battery packs and installation of the finished battery into the vehicle

Consulting:
Expertise for the economical building and operation of new factories

Battery production:
a market with potential

By 2030,

investments in European battery production plants are expected to exceed €75 billion.

15% to 20%

will be spent on equipment for which the Dürr Group has a solution in its portfolio.
