Sakuu to collaborate with SK On to industrialize dry-process EV battery manufacturing platform

Sakuu, a provider of commercial-scale equipment and technologies to the battery manufacturing industry, has announced a joint development agreement (JDA) with EV battery manufacturer SK On. Central to the agreement is the industrialization of Sakuu’s dry-process Kavian platform.

Sakuu says its dry-process manufacturing, together with its electrode printing technology, eliminates the use of solvents and enables the use of new processes in battery manufacturing that will enable cost-effective, higher performance batteries that are also environmentally friendly.

SK On currently operates two EV battery plants in Commerce, Georgia, and is constructing additional EV battery plants in the US through joint ventures with Ford and Hyundai.

“We are pleased to announce this strategic partnership with Sakuu,” said Dr. Rhee Jang-weon, Chief Technology Officer of SK On. “We look forward to working closely with Sakuu to accelerate innovations in the manufacturing processes for EV battery electrodes.”

“Together, SK On and Sakuu are ushering in a new era in battery manufacturing technology, advancing safety, sustainability and innovation in battery technology,” said Robert Bagheri, founder and CEO of Sakuu. “With Sakuu’s pioneering technology and SK On’s best-in-class EV battery manufacturing expertise, we’re addressing the core issues facing battery makers today.”
