Cathode Active Materials are the core of our business
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 demand for lithium-ion batteries with demand expected to increase considerably over the next decade. Cathode active materials are one of the most important components that determine efficiency, reliability, costs, durability and the size of the lithium-ion battery, and therefore its application.
Custom chemistries to meet unique requirements
We understand the need for bespoke formulations of cathode active materials, which are subject to strict quality specifications.
Cathode chemistries 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 for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage over the next 20 years: high energy density CAM containing lithium, nickel, cobalt and manganese (NCM); and lower energy density CAM containing lithium, iron (Fe) and phosphate (LFP) and lithium, manganese, iron (Fe) and phosphate (LMFP).
EVM is focused on establishing long term offtake agreements with electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers seeking to control costs through secure, stable and transparent supplies of cathode active materials. We will work in collaboration with businesses to tailor cathode chemistries to meet their specific requirements.
