GF Piping Systems has announced its debut in the battery industry with its knowledge of lightweight and corrosion-free systems for the battery sector, focused on applications from energy-efficient cooling and water treatment to process automation.
The company will attend the Battery Show event, from 23 to 25 May 2023 in Stuttgart, Germany.
The battery industry plays an essential role in facilitating the transition towards a decarbonized future – in Europe alone, new production capacities of around 1.4 TWh of battery cell capacity per year are expected by 2030.
However, it is crucial to ensure that battery production is conducted sustainably and with minimal impacts on human health and the environment.
This involves implementing efficient piping systems that are capable of transporting water, gas, and chemicals for processes including lithium extraction, material preparation, battery assembly, as well as recycling.
As a flow solutions provider specializing in thermoplastic piping systems, GF Piping Systems aims to optimize material flow, temperature, pressure, and flow rates, while also minimizing the environmental impact of closed-loop systems for fluid and gas recycling.
Cyrus Ardjomandi, Business Development Manager Battery and Hydrogen at GF Piping Systems emphasizes the importance of the market to the company: “Sustainability and material performance are indispensable for the battery revolution. With many decades of experience in the most demanding applications across industries, we believe that our lightweight and corrosion-free piping systems can empower the battery sector. By offering complete and customizable solutions with support throughout all project phases, we can help pave the way towards a net-zero future.”
Starting May 23 to 25 in Stuttgart, Germany, GF Piping Systems will attend the 2023 Battery Show which focuses on innovations in battery and electric vehicle technology.
Visitors will be able to experience COOL-FIT, a pre-insulated and vapor-proof plastic piping system for refrigeration applications that is up to 30% more energy efficient than metal alternatives.
In addition, the company will display product ranges for process automation and water treatment.
