SABIC has highlighted its dedicated and all-encompassing approach to ‘Powering Excellence in Batteries and Energy Storage’ – across industries from automotive and e-mobility to others who rely on stationary energy storage applications at this year’s Battery Show Europe 2021 from November 30 to December 2 in Stuttgart, Germany.
At Booth 6-651, the company is demonstrating its commitment, expertise and broad portfolio of polymer and specialty technologies to help customers implement safer, more sustainable and economically scalable concepts for more efficient energy storage.
“Most countries on this planet are committed to delivering on carbon neutrality ambitions, so accelerating innovation in batteries – from lead-acid to lithium-ion and fuel cells – is key for the world’s transition to clean energy,” says Bob Maughon, Executive Vice President, Sustainability, Technology & Innovation and Chief Technology and Sustainability Officer at SABIC. “Our drive is to power the energy storage value chain with second-to-none application technology, material engineering, regulatory expertise and one of the most comprehensive and focused thermoplastic offerings in the market.”
SABIC’s exhibit at The Battery Show Europe 2021 will highlight a range of polymer solutions targeted at optimizing all structural battery pack components, while also addressing the vast potential to re-imagine specific battery and energy storage applications with advanced engineering thermoplastics.
SABIC’s wide range of non-halogenated flame retardant (FR) resins can offer unique intumescent and char-forming properties, delivering the potential to stop the propagation of flames in the case of a fire and eliminate the need for additional thermal blankets, such as those required when using metal designs.
At the same time, SABIC’s non-halogenated FR resins provide greater design flexibility, significant weight savings – an important feature for supporting the improved driving ranges of EVs – and recyclability to support the circularity of battery materials.
Exhibiting side by side, SABIC’s Petrochemicals and Specialties businesses are taking the opportunity of The Battery Show Europe 2021 to demonstrate how their complementing material portfolios and application development support can help manufacturers reduce system cost and speed the time-to-market of safer and more energy-efficient batteries. An additional focus is material solutions for indoor and outdoor EV charging units, a growing need to meet the growth of the EV fleet.
SABIC’s offerings are targeted at all types of battery components for EVs, E-bikes and industrial vehicles (forklifts, caterpillars) as well as EV charging infrastructure and energy storage systems (ESS).
