Producing Cathode Active Materials for Growth Markets
Cathode Active Materials Plant
We will supply high purity cathode active materials to growth markets in the UK, Europe and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
We will produce both high energy density cathode active materials (NCM) and lower energy density cathode active materials (LFP and LMFP) at our Cathode Active Materials Plant to deliver the specific cathode active chemistries required by battery cell and electric vehicle manufacturers.
Our Battery Chemicals Complex will produce cathode active materials and pre-cursor chemicals (Pre-CAM) using lithium hydroxide, nickel, cobalt and manganese sulphate from the adjacent Lithium and Nickel Chemicals Plants. The Complex will supply domestic demand for cathode active materials from battery cell manufacturing plants to be built in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Fast-tracking supply of cathode active materials into UK and Europe
We are committed to becoming a global leader of CAM to UK and European markets, where demand is poised to outstrip supply.
The Battery Chemicals Complex has been designed with processing and production capacity to supply growth markets in strategic locations in UK and Europe. As part of our growth plan, we are also actively evaluating opportunities to supply high purity cathode active materials from directly within the European market to meet ‘rule of origin’ regulatory demands for the geopolitical alignment of supply chains.
Our studies indicate that pre-CAM can be produced at our Battery Chemicals Complex and shipped to UK/European CAM Plants located close to battery cell and electric vehicle manufacturing plants.
Cathode Active Materials
Cathode active materials are high purity chemicals that define the performance characteristics of a battery, and therefore the battery’s application.
