BASF entering into electrolyte activities

ZoomBASF entering into electrolyte activities
BASF is entering the business of electrolytes for lithium-ion batteries (LIB) and is forming a global electrolytes team in its Intermediates division for this purpose. By adding electrolytes to its existing portfolio for the LIB industry, BASF is able to offer another key component for the battery technology.
 
Electrolytes are complex formulations that are essential for the transport of electronic charge inside batteries. High-quality electrolytes are prerequisites for improving the battery performance.
 
BASF is already developing specific formulations for high-quality electrolytes based on organic carbonates for customers in the battery and automotive industries. The first products will be commercially available by the end of this year.
 
"By entering into electrolytes activities we are taking yet another step to support our customers' competitiveness in the electromobility business. We will offer top-quality products and processes. We are perfectly positioned to do so thanks to our many years of experience in cooperating with the automotive industry. We also contribute our globally unmatched Research Verbund, which we are continually expanding through research cooperation projects," said Dr. Andreas Kreimeyer, Member of the Board of Executive Directors and Research Executive Director of BASF . "In the electrolytes business we intend to become a system supplier that is capable of offering tailor-made solutions to our customers" he added.
 
Together with partners in industry and science BASF is developing materials and technologies for today's and next generation lithium-ion batteries as well as for future battery systems. The aim is to reduce the time to market for new solutions to energy storage. A major step on this road is the construction of a manufacturing plant for battery materials in Elyria, Ohio/USA. Along with battery materials, plastics and composites for lightweight automotive design and solutions for improved heat management, such as IR-reflective pigments for coatings and vehicle interior uses, have major roles to play.
 
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air  External Link in June in Stuttgart, Germany. Never before has there been an opportunity in Europe for people in land, water and air electric vehicles and their components, infrastructure and test equipment to compare notes in one event. Delegates already signed up vary from those seeking components such as Airbus, Ford, GKN Drivetrains, Hudson Power Sports and Hudson Yachts to those with many interests such as Sony, the Bulgarian Electric Vehicle Association and Robert Bosch Venture Capital.
