JR Energy Solution opens foundry in Korea to make electrodes using Enevate’s silicon battery tech

JR Energy Solution (JR ES) has opened an electrode foundry in South Korea to make electrodes using Enevate‘s silicon-dominant battery technology.

JR ES manufactures lithium-ion battery electrodes and offers battery cell makers and other partners custom electrodes and cell solutions. Enevate claims its silicon-dominant battery enables charging speeds up to 10 times faster than those of traditional graphite-based lithium-ion batteries. According to the companies, the new technology easily integrates with JR ES’s industrial infrastructure, avoiding the need for expensive new production equipment and processes. 

JR ES’s 20-acre electrode manufacturing plant in the Yongsan Industrial Complex produces 500 MWh of anodes and cathodes annually. The company plans to build an additional 2 GWh electrode plant in 2025.

“Our business model, resembling a semiconductor foundry, allows partners to access customized, advanced technology electrode solutions,” said JR Energy Solution CEO Duke Oh. “It allows us to produce a variety of advanced electrodes including anodes with Enevate’s fast-charge technology.”
