Huntsman to increase EV Battery Materials capacity by mid-2023

Huntsman Corporation has announced that its Performance Products division is planning to significantly increase EV Battery Materials capacity ULTRAPURE Ethylene Carbonate at its Conroe, Texas facility by mid-2023. 

ULTRAPURE Ethylene Carbonate is critical to the reliable operation and long working life of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and electronics. 

Huntsman has seen a strong growth in ULTRAPURE Ethylene Carbonate tied to the evolution of EVs and the localization of lithium-ion battery production. To meet this increased demand, Huntsman has added a range of new high-purity grades of Ethylene Carbonate for EV battery applications. 

"This capacity expansion will leverage our position as the only US producer of cyclic carbonates and support the rapid growth of the US and European lithium-ion battery markets for EVs," said Chuck Hirsch, Senior Vice President of Huntsman's Performance Products division. 

"We are committed to providing excellent service to our customers and are well positioned to grow with this sustainable industry, helping to reduce emissions in the transportation sector," added Hirsch.
