Cyclotron Road project Sepion Technologies will partner with Berkeley Lab under a newly announced High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4mfg) award from from the U.S. Department of Energy. Sepion will be working with Berkeley Lab Staff Scientist David Prendergast, who is the Theory of Nanostructured Materials Facility Director at the Molecular Foundry. The project will use resources at the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) to address key challenges in membrane manufacturing that could lead to longer lifetimes for Li-S batteries.
HPC4Mfg, "is designed to create an ecosystem that allows experts at DOE national labs to work directly with U.S. manufacturers to teach them how to adopt or advance their use of HPC to address challenging problems in manufacturing. The program gives participants access to world-class supercomputers and scientific expertise from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, which leads the program, as well as Lawrence Berkeley and Oak Ridge national laboratories."
