Vianode expands production capacity of advanced battery materials in Norway

  • This initiative aims to reduce time to production and increase Vianode’s overall capacity at the Herøya Industrial Park.
  • Herøya’s potential fast-track plant can add an additional 5,000 metric tons of production capacity, bringing the total production of Vianode at Herøya to about 60,000 metric tons of synthetic graphite.

Founded as a wholly owned subsidiary of Elkem ASA, dedicated to strategic growth opportunities for advanced battery materials, Vianode has successfully operated an industrial pilot in Kristiansand, Norway. To enable faster market entry of Vianode’s products, the company has signed an additional building lease agreement at the Herøya Industrial Park in Porsgrun, Norway. This initiative aims to reduce time to production and increase Vianode’s overall capacity at the Herøya Industrial Park.

The building is secured by a lease agreement between Vianode and Herøya Industrial Park. The building is next to the site where Vianode plans to set up a large plant and is intended for fast truck options that are being considered to meet strong customer demand and reduce time to market. It is said. The fast track plant will also be a platform for further technology and process development.

Chris York, VP of Vianode, said: At the same time, the acceleration of the market is driving the need for large quantities of industrially produced materials faster than expected. Our goal for fast truck plants is to meet the demands of this customer. “

Herøya’s potential fast-track plant will add an additional 5,000 metric tons of production capacity, bringing the total production of Vianodes at Herøya to approximately 60,000 metric tons of synthetic graphite. That’s nearly one million electric vehicles a year.

The Vianode organization is looking to add more talent for those in need of help to “live a more environmentally friendly life.” Vianode is creating a long-term solution for active anode materials that supports the transition of clean energy to renewable energy and energy storage in electric vehicles.
