About
Batemo

Bate­mo was found­ed by Dr.-Ing. Michael Schön­le­ber and Dr.-Ing. Jan Richter in Karl­sruhe, Ger­many, in March 2017. After prod­uct devel­op­ment for one year, the Bate­mo Cells soft­ware was intro­duced to the mar­ket in March 2018.

Bate­mo is 100% inde­pen­dent and com­plete­ly self-financed. Our cus­tomers come from var­i­ous mar­kets: We work with com­pa­nies who are active in the pow­er tool, light mobil­i­ty, auto­mo­tive, indus­tri­al and cell man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tors. 

Oper­a­tion of the Bate­mo bat­tery lab­o­ra­to­ry began in June 2018. Since then, we char­ac­ter­ize all types of cells with ambi­ent tem­per­a­tures between ‑40°C and 60°C  using ter­mi­nal cur­rents of up to 720A.

Cre­at­ing Bate­mo Cells does not work with­out look­ing inside of the bat­tery cells. That is why we oper­ate our own glove­box with a puri­fied argon atmos­phere since May 2019. We open bat­tery cells and ana­lyze the elec­trodes, the elec­trolyte and the sep­a­ra­tor inde­pen­dent­ly.

Dr.-Ing. Jan Richter stud­ied elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy at the Karl­sruhe Insti­tute of Tech­nol­o­gy (KIT). He focused on elec­tric mobil­i­ty and the fields of elec­tro­chem­i­cal ener­gy stor­age, pow­er elec­tron­ics, and elec­tri­cal machines. Dur­ing his stud­ies, he spent half a year work­ing in the Dalian Insti­tute of Chem­i­cal Physics in Chi­na and for Mer­cedes-Benz Research & Devel­op­ment North Amer­i­ca in the USA. He com­plet­ed his doc­tor­ate at the Insti­tute of Elec­tri­cal Engi­neer­ing (ETI) at KIT, grad­u­at­ing sum­ma cum laude, on mod­el­ling, para­me­ter iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and con­trol of high­ly-uti­lized syn­chro­nous machines. He received the PCIM Young Engi­neer Award for his research. As part of his activ­i­ties, he devel­oped a mod­el-based devel­op­ment tool for pow­er elec­tron­ics and elec­tri­cal machines for a Tier‑1 auto­mo­tive sup­pli­er. Dur­ing his under­grad­u­ate and grad­u­ate stud­ies, he received a schol­ar­ship from the Stu­di­en­s­tiftung des deutschen Volkes.

Cto

Dr.-Ing. Michael Schön­le­ber stud­ied elec­tri­cal engi­neer­ing and infor­ma­tion tech­nol­o­gy at the Karl­sruhe Insti­tute of Tech­nol­o­gy (KIT). He spe­cial­ized on elec­tro­chem­istry and sys­tem the­o­ry, with a focus on lithi­um-ion-bat­ter­ies. At the end of his stud­ies, he worked for Robert Bosch LLC in the USA for one year and devel­oped algo­rithms for com­bined para­me­ter and state esti­ma­tion in mod­ern bat­tery man­age­ment sys­tems. He was hon­ored with the Con­ti­nen­tal Auto-Moti­vat­ed Award and rec­og­nized as top stu­dent of his year with the Siemens Ener­gy Award.
He com­plet­ed his doc­tor­ate at the Insti­tute for Mate­ri­als in Elec­tri­cal Engi­neer­ing (IAM-WET) at KIT, grad­u­at­ing sum­ma cum laude. He researched the low fre­quen­cy behav­ior of NMC cath­odes and aging of lithi­um-ion-bat­ter­ies in an indus­try project with an auto­mo­tive man­u­fac­tur­er. For his doc­tor­al the­sis, he received the Carl Freuden­berg Prize.
