Honeywell technologies to support American Battery Factory's new gigafactory

The facility will be the largest gigafactory to produce LFP battery cells in the United States upon completion

  • By ICN Bureau | September 15, 2023

Honeywell announced that American Battery Factory (ABF), a Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery cell manufacturer, is fully integrating Honeywell's automation and process safety solutions in its new gigafactory located in Tucson, Ariz.

At approximately 2 million square feet, the facility will be the largest gigafactory to produce LFP battery cells in the United States upon completion. Energy storage systems made from ABF's battery cell production will be available to households, businesses and utilities, allowing them to optimize their use of energy from the grid or from their own systems.

The Arizona gigafactory will integrate Honeywell's Manufacturing Excellence Platform, Experion Batch, and Integrated Remote operations to help ABF optimize its manufacturing process and workflow.

"We will be able to quickly and effectively establish a sustainable foundation for our network of gigafactories by utilizing Honeywell's exceptional tools and technology," said John Kem, President of American Battery Factory. "This partnership marks a substantial advancement in our objective to supply the nation with U.S.-manufactured lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are essential for meeting federal and state government energy resilience and sustainability initiatives as well as national security requirements for products manufactured in the U.S."

"Honeywell is playing a key role in American Battery Factory's growth with our innovative solutions," said Chad Briggs, Vice President and General Manager of Projects and Automation Solutions at Honeywell Process Solutions. "Our approach to automation and process controls will change how gigafactories operate in the future by helping to increase battery production and reduce energy consumption."

American Battery Factory is developing the first-ever network of safe LFP cell gigafactories in the United States.
