SLURRY PREPARATION

Mixing

COATING

Coating of slurry to current collector
followed by drying

CUTTING

Electrodes cut to predetermined length

TOXIC ORGANIC
SOLVENT (NMP)

WATER

Toxic organic solvent (NMP), and expensive and non-green fluorinated polymers.

Higher capital expenditure, and production, material and regulatory costs.

Higher energy consumption in electrode production and solvent recovery processes.

Higher risk of future liabilities.

Water as a solvent and water-soluble fluorine-free polymer as a binding agent.

Lower capital expenditure, and operational and material costs.

Lower energy consumption for electrode drying and high throughput.

Complements customer and partners’ vision of green supply chain.
