Maintenance of Battery Production (MATTER)
Research Project, 2022 – 2023

Purpose and goal
The purpose of the MATTER project 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. The goal is to build the foundation for a sustainable battery production industry in Sweden. The project will set the stage for research on maintenance of battery production and solve the emerging maintenance-related challenges in battery factories already from the start.

Expected results and effects
The Step 1 feasibility project will focus on uncovering the uniqueness of maintaining battery factories, identifying key enabling responses, building and realizing the Step 2 project application, and packaging the project results for industrial and educational dissemination. The major effect goal is to achieve maintenance operations that ensure the ‘inner circularity’ of battery factories - i.e., extending the lifespan of technical equipment, increasing resource efficiency by minimizing disturbances, and reducing scrap and waste through failure-free production.
