German Innovation Award 2019 for fire protection in lithium-ion batteries
The innovative fire protection systems for lithium battery storages from Stöbich Technology reliably prevent inflammation and contamination of the environment in the event of a cell failure and were awarded the German Innovation Award on May 28, 2019 in Berlin. Current incidents of burning lithium-ion batteries in smartphones, hoverboards, electric vehicles, pedelecs or industrial buildings show the risk of cell fires and violent explosions. The protection system was designed and protected with IP design. The MIPLM case study Stöbich is available here.
On May 28, the German Design Council, which was initiated by the German Bundestag and has been supporting the German industry in increasing their competitiveness for 65 years, presented this year’s German Innovation Awards in Berlin. The winners were celebrated at a festive gala in the German Museum of Technology with guests from business, politics and the media.
This year there were almost 700 international submissions for the German Innovation Award, including industry giants such as Samsung, Bosch, Deutsche Telekom and the Swiss group ABB – as well as hidden champions and start-ups. The focus of the assessment is user-centered – it is about people.
Over 300 well-known companies from different industries use the advantages of membership in the foundation German Design Council (foundation members).
