Morrow Batteries and ReSiTec have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the development and supply of silicon based anode materials to Morrow Batteries’ planned lithium-ion battery cell facility in Eyde Energy Park, Arendal, Norway.
ReSiTec has been recycling Si wastes from the Photo Voltaic industry for several years. The Si products are already being sold to many different industries, and for the past few years ReSiTec has been developing Si for use in Li-ion batteries. Part of this development is taking place in the EU funded Horizon 2020 project COBRA (https://projectcobra.eu/), where ReSiTec is collaborating with 18 other European partners for development of the next generation battery for future automotive applications. ReSiTec recycled silicon is inherently exceptionally low-emission, low-cost, and low-energy, contributing to Morrows ambition of becoming the world`s most cost efficient manufacturer of battery cells with the lowest possible CO2 footprint.
