C-MET looks for co-funding partner for manufacturing Li-ion & Na-ion battery
The Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET) under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) is looking for co-funding industrial partners to design and develop machinery for lithium-ion (Li-ion) and sodium-ion (Na-ion) battery cell manufacturing and transfer indigenous technology for cell manufacturing in India.
C-MET looks for co-funding partner
Th C-MET is developing cost-effective technologies for the development of Lithium-ion and Sodium-ion batteries to help the EV industry. This partnership is open to the public sector units, Navratna companies, and private companies or consortium thereof in India.
The project aims to become self-reliance in 5 years through revenue generation from technical and consultancy services to the industry. It is seeking Rs 4 crore funding support partner from the selected industry that includes design and development of machinery for batteries manufacturing to be placed at C-MET.
The machinery includes a battery cycler system 450V, 200A with a thermal chamber for testing various types of cells and batteries of different capacities and voltages ranging from 3V single cells which can be used for mobile phones and large battery packs up to 450 V for electric vehicles, laser welding machine for prismatic cells and continuous electrode coating machine.
Recently, a Mumbai based Epsilon Carbon, a coal tar derivatives company announced that it has commissioned India’s first manufacturing facility in Karnataka to produce graphite anode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LiB). India’s first Li-ion battery manufacturing unit will produce 50,000 tonnes per annum by 2025.
