SVOLT introduces cobalt-free lithium-ion battery cell-introduces

SVOLT, a spin-off of the Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall, was already in discussion last week when it came to setting up a battery cell factory in Europe. Already at this time we have announced that you make good progress in developing a cobalt-free lithium-ion battery. In the meantime, the cobalt-free lithium-ion battery cell has been introduced.

With the NMx – cobalt-free lithium-ion battery cell – SVOLT have developed a battery cell that is in no way inferior to the performance of an NCM-811 cell. By doing without cobalt, the material costs should be reduced by five to fifteen percent and the unit costs by five percent. SVOLT has not disclosed any more detailed information on the materials used or the structure of the cell. The date of launch on the market is also still open.

In addition to the NMx cell, a so-called NCMA cell has also been created. This should surpass the NCM-811 cells in many areas. According to SVOLT, in a direct comparison, this comes with a longer service life, improved heat resistance and more safety. Here, too, the company does not give any further data.

There are still ten percent cobalt in a NCM-811 cathode. In addition to nickel, cobalt and manganese, aluminum is also added to the NCMA cell. The nickel content can account for up to 90%, which in turn further reduces the cobalt content.
