Samsung SDI starts construction of pilot plant for solid-state batteries
The company is planning to achieve the market-leading research results and production technology of solid-state batteries
Samsung SDI announced that it has started the launch of the pilot plant (S-line) for manufacturing solid-state batteries at SDI R&D Center located in Yeongtong-gu, Suwon-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
The pilot line’s size will be about 6,500㎡.
Samsung SDI named solid-state batteries’ pilot line as ‘S-line’ which is the acronym for three words: solid, sole, and Samsung SDI.
The company is planning to achieve the market-leading research results and production technology of solid-state batteries through ‘S-Line.’
‘S-Line’ will be composed of facilities for manufacturing solid-state batteries. Samsung SDI plans to introduce facilities and system to produce cathode and solid electrolyte and adopt new production method and infrastructure such as assembling cells to allow ions to move smoothly within.
The company has been leading the technology development such as manufacturing prototype of solid-state batteries through successful design and compound of a solid electrotype. In addition, it came up with the technology, securing industry-leading level of higher energy density and safety by developing the anode-free lithium cell architecture. And, this technology was published in the ‘Nature Energy’, a global scientific journal.
YOON-HO CHOI, President and CEO of Samsung SDI, stated that the new S-line will be the stepping stone to make Samsung SDI as the true No.1 Company via 'Super-gap' technological competitiveness, superior quality, and qualitative growth that prioritizes profitability.
