The new building has a ca. 750m2 footprint, including over 600 m2 of battery development laboratories and production equipment. Two dry rooms, installed to ISO 7 standard, ensure high level particle filtration and near zero humidity for handling moisture sensitive materials. The labs include state-of-the-art equipment for the characterisation of source materials, the preparation of solid-state batteries and the testing of produced cells. The GPPL is a pre-pilot line to accelerate the scale up and transfer of the solid-state battery technology to pilot production level.
