Sepion Technologies, a manufacturer of EV batteries, has opened a separator coating facility for lithium-metal batteries for EVs.
The renewable-energy-powered building spans 25,000 square feet, increasing Sepion’s separator coating capacity by 1,000-fold and polymer synthesis scale by 100-fold. It also enables the production of up to 10 Ah pouch cells.
Sepion’s separators are designed using a closed loop, data-driven materials development program that combines computational chemistry, machine learning and experimental electrochemistry to safely replace graphite anodes with lithium metal and boost e-mobility range by 40% while improving charging performance.
“The opening of our lithium-metal separator coating facility represents a major leap forward in our production capacity,” said Zahid Shafi, VP of Operations at Sepion.
