Li-Metal advanced anode development facility becomes operational
Markham-based Lithium Anode Materials Lab to Increase Development Capacity for Next-Generation Battery Manufacturers in North America
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 25, 2021 / Li-Metal Corp. (CSE: LIM) (FSE: 5ZO) (“Li-Metal“or the”Society“), a leading developer of lithium metal and lithium metal anode technologies critical for next-generation batteries, today announced that its advanced anode materials development facility (the”Establishment“) in Markham, Ontario, has reached initial operational capability.
The facility houses small-scale deposition equipment that can rapidly produce anode materials for evaluation and testing, which is a key part of the highly scalable, cost-effective and sustainable lithium anode technology development strategy. by Li-Metal. These advanced anode materials will be produced at the facility for evaluation and optimization, followed by initial industrialization at the roll-to-roll anode facility in Rochester, New York.
“Our advanced anode material development facility will dramatically improve our ability to develop our second and third generation products and customize them for each of our customers’ specific and unique needs,” said Maciej Jastrzebski, co-founder and CEO of Li-Metal. . “This facility increases our ability to meet our product roadmap and grow our product and intellectual property portfolio.”
To meet the rapidly growing demand and need for premium lithium anode materials, Li-Metal hopes to reach commercial scale by 2025. As electrification continues to gain momentum, the adoption of next-generation batteries will accelerate and electric vehicle manufacturers will seek high performance. -generation of batteries to power more economical, longer range and safer electric vehicles. The need for high-performance anodes is expected to increase as total demand for lithium-ion batteries is expected to exceed 2.6 TWh per year, according to BloombergNEF, and total annual production of electric vehicles is expected to exceed 30 million vehicles per year. The world’s leading manufacturers of electric vehicles, including BMW, GM and Volkswagen, are expected to advance next-generation batteries towards product qualification for future electric vehicles in the coming years – sufficient production of lithium metal anodes will be essential to overcome this obstacle.
