Johnson Matthey

CAMX Power has granted specialty chemical supplier Johnson Matthey a license relating to its CAM-7 platform of nickel-based cathode materials for use in lithium-ion batteries.

The CAM-7 platform covers a range of nickel-rich cathode materials that are designed to offer excellent energy density, cycle life, gassing and power handling, making them well suited to EV and PHEV applications.

Johnson Matthey believes that its experience in the scale-up and manufacture of battery materials and its in-depth knowledge of nickel chemistry put it in a strong position to bring CAMX Power’s technology to market.

“This license is another important step in our Battery Technologies strategy where we are building a broad portfolio of battery materials aimed at satisfying the most demanding performance requirements,” said Martin Green, Director of Johnson Matthey’s Battery Technologies business. “Access to CAM-7 will enable Johnson Matthey to accelerate its entry into the nickel-rich cathode material sector of the automotive market. The CAM-7 platform is highly complementary to our existing R&D programs.”
