Final Technical Meeting and Discussions on International R&D Projects
P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”
P482 "Recycling Spent Batteries for Electric Drive Vehicles"
Materials Research Centre, August 2013
That research projects were organized by the U.S. Department of Energy (United States Department of Energy (DoE), Argonne National Laboratory, USA, for the development of new batteries for electric drive vehicles.
Main objective of that projects is to develop and manufacture a number of experimental and new lines of experimental equipment for the development of technologies and materials for manufacturing of batteries for electric drive vehicles.
Final Technical Meeting on International R&D Project P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”, August 7th, 2013
Meeting of Ukrainian participants of the project P483 "New materials for electric drive vehicles" and U.S. partners was held in the MRC office and work premises on August 7th 2013. It was attended by P483 project technical monitor Dave Carter and Andrew Castiglioni (Argonne National Laboratory, USA), American partner Igor Barsukov (American Energy Technologies Company, USA), P483 project manager S.Saenko (KIPT), O. Gogotsi (Materials Research Centre), M.Gubinskyi (NMetAU), and STCU representatives- STCU’s Deputy Executive Director (USA) Vic Korsun, I.Tomashevskaya (STCU).
The participants have summed up the project P483 on manufacturing experimental equipment for pilot technological line. Also packaging and transportation and subsequent mounting in the United States have been discussed. Complex of experimental equipment designed, manufactured and assembled by MARC due to the project, was demonstrated to American party. Shown equipment is completely ready for shipment to the customer.
Technical Meeting and Discussion on International R&D Project P482 "Recycling Spent Batteries for Electric Drive Vehicles", August 8th, 2013
MRC was visited by US project manger Upendra S. Rohatgi (Brookhaven National Laboratory), Igor Barsukov (American Energy Technologies Company), Ukrainian P482 project manager M.Gubinskyi (NMetAU), S. Fedorov (NMetAU), O. Gogotsi (Materials Research Centre), V.Lutsenko (DO Yuzhnoe), Ya.Tyrygin (DO Yuzhnoe), and STCU representatives - STCU’s Deputy Executive Director from USA Vic Korsun and N.Dudko (STCU).
The workshop took place in the production of Material Research Centre, which discussed work issues on manufacturing equipment due to the project P482. At the work premises of MRC was presented developed and already manufactured, completely and partly assembled units and items of equipment for technological line.
Meeting with Expeditor on Packing and Transportation of Equipment Manufactured by MRC due to the Project P483 “New Materials for Electric Drive Vehicles”, August 28th, 2013
P 483 project collaborator Joseph Doninger (Dontech Global Inc., USA) and STCU’s Deputy Executive Director (USA) Vic Korsun visited MRC to discuss work issues on packing and shipment of completed equipment with expeditor and MRC Director O.Gogotsi.
