MATTER - Maintenance of Battery Production
Research Project, 2022 – 2023

The manufacturing industry’s transformation towards a sustainable future hinge on a fast and extensive upscaling of battery production. Yet, despite the ongoing planning and building of multiple battery factories in Sweden, industry and academia express a consensus about the severe lack of adequate knowledge about maintenance of battery production. This is remarkable as maintenance is fundamental to the ‘inner circularity’ of production systems – i.e., extending the lifespan of technical equipment, increasing resource efficiency by minimizing disturbances, and reducing scrap and waste through failure-free production. Therefore, the main project idea is to gather the combined strength of industry and academia and take a firm grip on understanding the why’s, how’s, and what’s of maintenance of battery production.
