Technical Seminar at LABAT Shows High Demand for Similar Events
Attendees of the recent technical seminar on “Lead-Acid Batteries for Start-Stop and Hybrid Electric Vehicles” were the beneficiaries of some of the most recent technical data on advanced lead-acid batteries, and made it known that more of these events are needed in the near future. The one-day seminar, which took place June 9 prior to the 8th LABAT Conference in Varna, Bulgaria, was organized for the first time by the ALABC and the Lead-Acid Battery Department of IEES, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The event included presentations by some of the industry’s leading experts, including Allan Cooper of EALABC, Boris Monahov of ALABC, Francisco Trinidad of Exide Technologies (Spain), Eberhard Messner and Joern Albers of JCI Power Solutions EMEA (Germany), and Jun Furukawa of Furukawa Battery (Japan).



LABAT Conference Demonstrates Lead-Acid Industry is Alive and Well
This year’s LABAT Conference provided attendees with a more robust picture of the lead-acid battery industry, as experts from all over the world shared their visions for technological innovation and expanding markets. The conference, which was held June 10-13 at the Grand Flamingo Hotel at the Albena Resort near Varna, Bulgaria, is traditionally devoted to basic battery science, technology innovation and market growth, but also showed the industry’s potential for further development and a strong future.



Things to See This Month at 14ELBC and The Battery Show
The ALABC will be highly visible this month at both the 14th European Lead Battery Conference (14ELBC) in Edinburgh, Scotland, and The Battery Show 2014 in Novi, Michigan (USA). Here are a few items to remember:

ALABC Members & Contractors Conference and Fall Steering Committee Meeting, Sept. 8-9 (at the Edinburgh International Conference Center)

ALABC Public Affairs & Marketing (PAM) Committee Meeting (Europe), Sept. 11 (at the adjoining Sheraton Hotel)

ALABC Public Affairs & Marketing (PAM) Committee Meeting (North America), Sept. 17 (at the Hyatt in Novi, Michigan)

The ALABC will share a booth with the International Lead Association (ILA) at 14ELBC, and will display its NGHV demonstrator at The Battery Show at booth #1211.

Since its inception in 2008, Advanced Battery Concepts has grown from a small, start-up operation to one of North America’s most innovative battery technology producers. Its GreenSeal® battery electrode technology has proven to enhance the performance and functionality of, as well as generate significant cost and weight benefits for, today’s large-scale lead-acid batteries, and it has drawn the attention of several high-profile manufacturers.

Soon after first publicly demonstrating its GreenSeal® technology in 2011 at The Battery Show in Novi, the Michigan-based company partnered with ALABC battery producer member Crown Battery to produce batteries with the novel technology, and the company has been going strong ever since.

Today, Advanced Battery Concepts continues to introduce new products, including a high-voltage, dual-polarity AGM battery that is expected to make a valuable contribution to the ALABC R&D program and eventually become a strong market candidate. The company is also actively developing a low-cost, high-voltage, high-performance mono-block partial state-of-charge (PSoC) advanced lead-acid battery for automotive applications.
