The Baden-Württemberg Environmental Engineering Award recognizes companies whose processes and products contribute to climate and resource protection. A total of 123 companies – more than ever before – responded to this year's call for entries. Of them, 30 were chosen for the final round after a demanding selection process. Among them was teamtechnik, which can celebrate its nomination in the material efficiency category. The awards ceremony was held on October 24 in the Schwabenlandhalle in Fellbach. At the event, teamtechnik CEO Stefan Rosskopf stated: ‘"Sustainable mobility and energy production are important levers for achieving our climate goals. teamtechnik intends to make a relevant contribution here through innovation, creativity and team spirit."
Lead-free, resource-saving solar module production
teamtechnik has been part of the Dürr group since 2021. The international market leader in production technology is known for its assembly and functional test systems. The company entered the Baden-Württemberg Environmental Engineering Award competition with a production process in which solar cell strings for solar modules can be produced faster using less energy and no environmentally harmful lead. The company, which specializes in automation, calls the production system it developed "stringer." It uses electrically conductive adhesive (ECA) to join individual solar cells into strings instead of the soldering process used previously. This method is particularly good for modern cell types such as HJT and perovskite solar cells. "Doing away with lead makes solar cell production more environmentally compatible and recycling easier," said Philipp Enzel, the Marketing Director at teamtechnik. With a production rate of 4,000 cycles per hour on a small footprint, the stringer is also the highest-performing method in the world right now. Its low energy consumption and high output have already made waves in the industry. A larger number of machines have already been delivered this year, according to Enzel.
Sustainable products for the energy transition
teamtechnik has worked in the solar technology sector since 2004. The automation solutions specialist benefited from its existing standardization and modularization concept and was quickly able to launch systems that were competitive on the international level. Since then, the Freiberg-based company has developed into a technological leader in the field of photovoltaic cell types and production processes.
Production system specialist runs on 100% green electricity
With its focus on production systems for photovoltaics, e-mobility, and batteries, teamtechnik is active in sustainable growth markets. Almost half of the company's sales volume is already classifiable as "green" under the EU classification system. Environmentally sensitive production is also a declared objective of the company's daily activities. The production systems specialist already runs on 100% green electricity. It plans to achieve a 70% reduction in direct CO2 emissions by 2030. teamtechnik's climate concept is in line with that of the Dürr Group, which aims to be entirely climate-neutral in all corporate sectors by 2030.
