The offer of the EEP department

  • Research and development of components for electrochemical systems
  • Development and production of components for electrochemical systems
  • Non-destructive defectoscopic analysis of materials (plastics, composites, ceramics, non-ferrous metals)
  • Morphological analysis of heterogeneous materials

Examples of our services:

non-destructive analysis of the internal structure of materials, search for internal defects of materials, eg after fatigue tests and detection of weak points, comparison of products with the model during the innovation


Usage:

industry (defectoscopy, product innovation), energy (secure energy storage), ecology (recyclability, renewables)

Reference

As part of contract research, we performed defectoscopic, morphological, and spectral analyzes for our partners.      

Current projects - EEP team

HIGREEW: High-performance green redox batteries available - European Commission, 01/11/2019 - 28/02. 2023

The aim of the project is to develop an advanced redox battery based on new, water-soluble, inexpensive organic electrolytes compatible with the optimized membrane.


Development of advanced flow-through electrochemical energy storages - TAČR, 01. 08. 2019 - 31.12. 2023

The aim of the project is the development of advanced energy storages using high-capacity cathodes based on an oxygen electrode. Two groups of systems will be studied: Metal-air and organic-air and research into so-called high-performance flow cell bundles.
