NECCES Battery Dry Room


NECCES Dry Room and Battery Facility is an open user facility providing researchers from academia and industry state-of-the-art lab environment for lithium batteries manufacturing and testing. With our climate-controlled dry room (< 0.5% relative humidity) equipped with a full pouch cell assembly line and top-of-the-line cell testing equipment, an explicit evaluation of battery materials/chemistries in a timely manner is provided in a close-to-industrial format, closing the gap between the lab discovery and industrial applications. Furthermore, partnering with NECCES and Binghamton University offers unique opportunity to collaborate with talent and creative experts on campus and access to other state-of-the-art labs and facilities.

The NECCES Dry room will assist the Southern Tier in maintaining its leadership position in the energy and transportation field, as it will allow for academia and industry to research, develop, manufacture, and test advanced energy storage devices that will be used in transportation as well as renewable energy applications such as solar, wind, grid and home storage units.


Equipment includes: 

• Slurry Mixing Machine
• Electrode Preparation Machines (Coating, Calendering and Punching)
• Pouch Cell Making Machines (Pouch forming, Zig-zag Stacking, Welding, Electrolyte Filling and Sealing)
• Degassing and Vacuum Sealing Machine
• Formation Cycler System with 32 Channels
