The International Workshop on Zinc-Air-Based Batteries (IZABW) is a conference focused on the research and development of zinc-based batteries that could serve as an alternative to lithium batteries. The event attracts researchers, experts, and industry representatives from around the world, providing a platform for knowledge exchange in this field. This year's 3rd IZABW conference, scheduled for September 18th and 19th, 2023, is organized by the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) in Ulm and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) at the Stadthaus in Ulm's Münsterplatz. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding this event.
The IZABW (International Zinc-air and other Zinc Batteries Workshop) has established itself in recent years as a platform for discussing the current state and emerging trends in zinc-based battery technologies at an international level. More than 100 experts will gather in Ulm for this conference. The event will bring together stakeholders from academia, research institutions and companies from 14 countries, including 13 Japanese experts. Over the two days of the conference, 22 talks and 36 posters are planned, covering topics ranging from the fundamentals of electrode reactions to the development of commercial battery products.
The ZSW in Ulm is hosting the 3rd IZABW in cooperation with the DLR Institute of Technical Thermodynamics in Stuttgart. Three Ulm experts in zinc-air technologies initiated this event: Dr Sylvain Brimaud, group leader at ZSW, Professor Birger Horstmann, group leader at DLR, and Professor Jürgen Garche, former head of ZSW.
The importance of this conference for the German research landscape and international collaboration in zinc-based battery technologies is underlined by the funding of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It also reflects the German government's commitment to promoting sustainable energy storage solutions and supporting groundbreaking research projects.
