Eduardo Cattaneo received a PhD in solid state physics from the University of Cologne.
After working as a postgraduate at the physical-chemistry institute of the University of Bonn he joined in 1988 the R&D staff of HOPPECKE Batteries.
He has more than 20 years R&D experience on battery technology including published works on continuous casting of lead grids, continuous plate making, lead alloys corrosion, VRLA batteries and anodic stability of electrolytes for Lithium-ion cells
Bernhard Riegel received his PhD in inorganic chemistry at the University of Stuttgart. He worked in his postgraduate time at the Max Planck Institute for Solid state chemistry in Stuttgart, the University of Texas at Austin, followed by the Center of Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research in Ulm (ZSW).
Since 2001 he is working for HOPPECKE batteries with the responsibility as the director for Research and Development.
His major R&D experiences are in the field of electrochemistry of lead-acid, alkaline and Li-Ion batteries.
