Enevate licensee JR Energy Solution starts operation of Korea’s first electrode foundry

Enevate, a developer of technology enabling extreme fast charge with high energy density batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and other markets, announced that JR Energy Solution (JR ES) has started operation of Korea’s first electrode foundry, with capability to manufacture electrodes containing Enevate’s technology.

JR ES develops and manufactures high-performance lithium-ion battery electrodes with a unique electrode and battery cell foundry model, enabling lithium-ion cell manufacturers and other partners to purchase tailor-made electrodes and, in the future, cell solutions.


Operators hold an anode and cathode roll at JR ES, Korea’s first electrode foundry, with capability to manufacture electrodes containing Enevate’s technology.

Enevate’s silicon battery technology enables significant advances in battery performance. This technology charges up to 10 times faster than traditional lithium-ion batteries. The technology not only achieves superior energy densities but also provides enhanced safety features and operates efficiently in low-temperature environments, making it a versatile solution.

Enevate’s technology readily integrates with existing manufacturing infrastructure, such as that of JR ES, eliminating the need for costly new production equipment and processes, leading to higher profitability.

JR ES has strategically invested in an electrode manufacturing plant, demonstrating its commitment to advanced battery technology and sustainable energy solutions. The plant, located on a 20-acre site in the Yongsan Industrial Complex, Eumseong, Chungcheongbuk-do, is well-positioned to serve both the Korean market and beyond, with an annual production capacity of 500MWh of anode and cathode electrodes.

JR ES projects electrode sales to reach $15 million in 2024, reflecting strong market demand. Looking ahead, JR ES plans to expand with an additional electrode plant in 2025, featuring a capacity of 2GWh.



Enevate is the company with silicon anodes, they provide higher capacity with faster charging. The silicone swells when it's charged and contracts when it discharges, so they have to find a way to keep that swelling from cracking, apparently they've done it.
