NOVONIX to receive $103 million in tax credits to support production of critical battery materials in Tennessee.

Battery materials and technology company NOVONIX has been selected to receive a $103-million tax credit under section 48C of the Qualifying Advanced Energy Project Allocation Program, to support production of critical battery materials at its Riverside facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The 48C tax credit is designed to incentivize clean energy property manufacturing, industrial decarbonization, and critical materials processing, refining and recycling in the US.

Under the IRA, a Qualifying Advanced Energy Project credit can be used to offset income tax liability, or sold for cash. The company has a period of two years within which to satisfy the requirements and claim the tax credit.

NOVONIX was previously awarded a $100-million grant for this facility by the DOE’s Office of Manufacturing & Energy Supply Chains, and continues to pursue funding support under the DOE Loan Programs Office’s Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Program.

“The approval of our 48C application strengthens our financing strategy and demonstrates another significant landmark for NOVONIX,” said Dr. Chris Burns, CEO of NOVONIX. “With this support, we are poised to further expand our operations, create high-quality US jobs, and advance our mission of developing technologies and materials to service the EV and ESS sectors.”
