Working closely with Lancaster University, UK-based LiNa has commissioned and installed the modular cleanroom in four weeks
LiNa Energy has commissioned and completed a first-of-its-kind modular cleanroom. The solid-state sodium battery manufacturer chose Dawsongroup for this new project.
Working closely with Lancaster University, UK-based LiNa was able to commission the first-of-its-kind modular cleanroom in record time to further accelerate the R&D of its future generations of battery cells.
The Dawsongroup plc cleanroom is actively cleaned to maintain a very low concentration of airborne particulates filtered at the micron scale providing an ultra-controlled environment for research. A traditional cleanroom installation or expansion would take 4 months, but working with Lancaster University enabled LiNa to install a portable mobile cleanroom and cut down installation and commissioning to only 4 weeks.
The new cleanroom is housing research and development work on our next generation of ultra-high energy density battery cells.
As the world makes rapid progress towards electrification, industry is increasingly reliant on critical raw materials such as lithium and cobalt. Alternative battery chemistries like LiNa’s technology are critical for long-term capacity growth whilst also enabling safety, sustainability, and cost advantages.
