Cathode Active Materials are critical to the energy transition
Cathode Active Materials
Cathode Active Materials (CAM) are high purity chemicals that define the output and application of different types of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles and renewable energy storage.
Electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers are facing unprecedented demands for lithium-ion batteries, which are expected to increase considerably over the next decade. CAM is one of the most important components that determine performance, efficiency, reliability, costs, durability and the size of the lithium-ion battery, therefore unlocking the potential of its application.
Custom chemistries to meet unique requirements
EVM understands the need for bespoke formulations of CAM, which are subject to strict quality specifications.
EVM has a broad range of cathode chemistries that will differentiate by energy density required for specific applications. Independent market studies and analysis by our market research partner, Benchmark Mineral Intelligence (BMI), report two dominant cathode chemistries for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries over the next 20 years: high energy density CAM; and lower energy density CAM.
Developing a secure and transparent supply of localised battery materials from directly within the European market enables electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers to meet ‘Rules of Origin’ regulatory demands for the geopolitical alignment of supply chains.
