European Center for Dispersion Technologies (EZD)
Booth number: 5L-03F
EZD – Your partner when it comes to dispersion
The European Center for Dispersion Technologies (EZD) is an interdisciplinary research and innovation center with expertise in the production and characterization of dispersions.
The EZD focuses on the formulation, dispersion, coating and characterization of battery slurries, inks, coatings and adhesives.
It was established by Germany's largest plastics institute, the SKZ, in close cooperation with industry and with considerable support from the Free State of Bavaria. Since the start of operations in 2014, more than 700 industrial and research projects as well as more than 40 courses with over 600 participants have been carried out at the EZD.
Our offer to industrial customers includes:
- Contract research: Consultancy, product development, process optimization as well as application of coatings and inks
- Analytical services and material testing
- Public funded projects
- Training: On-site and online

Products & Services
To meet future battery demand, the battery manufacturing sector must become greener and more cost-effective. This can be achieved by reducing the energy consumption during production and by incorporating digital tools to enhance the entire process.
BATMACHINE project (www.batmachineproject.eu) is a Horizon Europe-funded initiative that aims to boost Europe’s sustainable industrial battery cell manufacturing value chain by developing an optimised machinery with intelligent control processes to minimise costs, waste and energy consumption.
The core vision of BATMACHINE is to improve and strengthen EU battery cell industrial production by developing new manufacturing machines that minimise energy required for production, increase efficiency rates, and integrate AI-based control processes to reduce scrap.
The EZD is proud to be partner in the European project BATMACHINE and focuses on the dispersibility of components for the production of high quality battery slurries.
