11 Feb COLFEED4Print and young CSIC researchers working together for a suitable energetic world
Our collaborator Oxel Urra was interviewed by CSIC Science journal about his research in energetic materials and how the 3D printing can help in the new designed electrodes for batteries.
Rapid prototyping is a key application in the energy sector. It helps in decreasing the time to market and that’s why 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies are already widely integrated in the industrial sector.
In the interview, Oxel points that additive manufacturing (AM) is an increasingly important part of modern batteries due to its ability to create complex features for electrodes with more energy storage capacities. His research in the Colloidal Processing group at ICV-CSIC runs parallel to colfeed’s Filament ECO product line. The development of carbon and graphene-based filament in combination with polylactic acid filaments, end up with a filament that is highly conductive and enables the printing of highly efficient battery electrodes in 3D.
The objective of Oxel’s PhD and the Filament ECO line of conductive filaments is to promote the energy transition towards a model based on renewable energies, less dependent on fossil fuels.
Congratulations, Oxel, on your achievements!
