Süd Chemie invests EUR 60 million in production of the lithium iron phosphate for e-mobility

World’s largest production plant using a new high-quality production process for lithium iron phosphate for a new battery generation for electric vehicle drives to be established.
Süd-Chemie AG, a worldwide leading specialty chemical company based in Munich/Germany, is investing approximately EUR 60 million in the production of lithium iron phosphate (LFP), a high performance energy storage material used in batteries for electric vehicle drives and other applications. On the new site of its wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, Phostech Lithium Inc. in Candiac/Quebec, the German group is constructing the first industrial production plant for LFP using a new, proprietary production process based-on wet chemistry. By using this process, high grade LFP can be produced in both stable and …

EV Charging Stations as Smart Metering Solutions

 Smart metering, the remote monitoring of electricity meters via a communications network, is of significant interest to public utilities and power producers who seek to level the grid load over the course of the day. Through smart monitoring of electricity consumption by consumers, utilities can reduce peak loads and achieve better efficiency. This can also help consumers save on electricity costs when charging electric vehicles at non-peak hours, particularly at night when there is an excess of power.
The budding development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles provides a useful application for smart metering. If present in charging infrastructure technology, smart metering can transfer the load of electric vehicles to times of day with overproduction of …
