NEO Battery (NBM) has completed the conceptual design and initiated engineering of its semi-commercial plant in South Korea.
The conceptual design report has validated the facility’s annual production rate of 120 tons of silicon anode materials.
The report also determined the necessary raw materials and utilities to accommodate annual production, in addition to facility guidelines for health, safety and environmental protection.
The conceptual design was carried out in full consideration of scaling up to a full commercial plant with no limitation on building future plants in Europe and North America.
The company has also finalized basic engineering design data, as well as the configuration and equipment for major production processes for its one-pot nanocoating technology.
NEO has begun the engineering, procurement and construction stage for its semi-commercial plant with the intention of having it completed and commissioned by the end of 2022.
Spencer Huh, President and CEO of NEO Battery Materials, stated,
“NEO is now another step towards commercializing our silicon anode materials for EV lithium-ion batteries and is actively expediting our timelines and milestones.
Concerning the site selection of the semi-commercial facility, NEO is currently negotiating with two South Korean provincial governments to find the most suitable and economical option for construction. The company is considering the benefits provided to foreign-invested companies by the government and the proximity with South Korean battery manufacturers.
We are also in the last stages of establishing the South Korean subsidiary NEO Battery Materials Korea, and we are proceeding with all business and engineering activities without delay. As all developments are secured and completed, we will accordingly announce all updates as soon as possible.”
J. H. Park, NEO’s Director and Chief Scientific Advisor added,
“The semi-commercial plant is of great significance as NEO’s management and engineers have successfully designed the plant to enable both low-cost production of the silicon anode materials and flexibility of specification to satisfy the needs of various customers in the supply chain.”
