Showa Denko to Establish Advanced Battery Materials Operation

Showa Denko K.K. (SDK) is establishing an Advanced Battery Materials Department to meet growing demand for lithium ion batteries (LIBs).

The new department will take unified control of SDK’s businesses in battery components, including VGCF (additive in cathodes/anodes of high-performance LIBs) and SCMG (graphite anode material already adopted in LIBs for electric vehicles). (Earlier post.)

The new department will collect and analyze battery-related information in a unified manner, accelerating the development of innovative technologies for battery components.
