Safion's core is based on a scientifically novel method for battery state diagnosis. After more than 10 years of interdisciplinary research at RWTH Aachen University, our founding team decided to transfer its far-reaching findings into innovative industrial solutions to enable real technological progress. The combination of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and advanced evaluation algorithms, this is where we see the first and only way of truly understanding the inner processes of batteries.
Thanks to years of cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, our combined battery knowledge led directly into our product development and formed the cornerstone of our expertise.
More space for even more ideas: We are moving to our new facilities in Tempelhofer Straße in Aachen.
