(MOSCOW (MRC) -- Evonik presents a new material technology for printable batteries at the virtual exhibition LOPEC, as per the company's press release.
The specialty chemicals group together with the company InnovationLab proves the integration of TAeTTOOz technology in printed electronics to open up new applications. TAeTTOOz was develop based on so-called redox polymers from Creavis, the strategic innovation unit from Evonik.
With TAeTTOOz Evonik presents an innovative technology for the efficient production of rechargeable battery cells.
The new materials can be processed with screen printing into very thin and flexible batteries. Compared to regular batteries, organic polymer batteries have a number of advantages. They can be produced with regular printing methods, which allows a high degree of design freedom. Additionally, the battery materials do not contain metals or metal compounds.
"We are very pleased to be working with InnovationLab”, says Dr. Michael Korell, responsible at Evonik for the development of TAeTTOOz. “With the TAeTTOOz technology, we want to enable new applications. Especially with the increasing interconnection of everyday life objects - in the 'Internet of Things' - the development of a metal-free and printable energy storage solution opens up future areas of application”.
In the health sector, sensors to monitor vital function can be worn much more comfortably when using printed batteries. In the field of logistics, sensors powered with printed batteries can also monitor packaging, like in the supply chain of sensitive goods, including vaccines or food.
As MRC informed earlier, in February, 2020, Dow and Evonik entered into an exclusive technology partnership. Together, they plan to bring a unique method for directly synthesizing propylene glycol (PG) from propylene and hydrogen peroxide to market maturity.
Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 141,870 tonnes in January 2021 versus 123,520 tonnes a year earlier. Supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased.
