BASF inaugurated its Research and Development Laboratory and Application Technology Center for Battery Materials in the Amagasaki Research Incubation Center (ARIC), Amagasaki, Japan. It is the company’s first combined battery materials R&D and application technology operation in Asia Pacific. The facility covers 600 m² of new offices and laboratories. The total investment is several million euros.

The laboratory will focus on developing electrolytes and electrode materials for high-performance lithium ion batteries as part of BASF’s global R&D network, leveraging technology platforms from around the world. In addition, it will run development programs jointly with Japanese customers; Japan is seen as a leader in battery manufacturing and development.
The laboratory will combine organic and inorganic synthesis, analytics and electrochemical testing within one group. This facilitates understanding of how different materials such as electrodes and electrolytes interact with each other in battery applications, thus supporting materials optimization.
