Advanced Cathode Material Production Facility.
TODA America has been designed and licensed to be the major cathode materials supplier to Li-ion battery manufacturers throughout North America and Europe. TODA America’s principal objective is to establish itself as a high volume cathode materials production facility becoming a strong and supportive strategic partner to the North American and European advanced battery industry.
TODA America produces LiNiCoAlO2 (LNCA), LiNiCoMnO2 (LNCM) and LiMn2O4 (LMO). TODA’s top performing products have the highest customer yields and customer satisfaction. We strive to produce the highest quality, purity and consistency through continuous improvement and following the strictest ISO guidelines.
TODA’s Battle Creek facility produces a variety of oxide cathode materials to serve both existing TODA customers and emerging players in this industry. With the DOE grant, Toda America constructed the facility in 2 phases: Phases 1 and 2. Phase 1, was outfitted with state of the art equipment in 2010-11 followed by Phase 2 expansion in 2014-15.
In addition, TODA Kogyo Corporation continues to provide TODA America Inc. with ongoing support using its robust R&D capabilities. They are continuously developing next-generation Li-ion battery materials using cutting edge technology with their intellectual property protected by licensing from Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). TODA America produces several cathode products and grades using proprietary Li-metal oxide combinations (LiNCA, LiNMC, and LiMO). TODA America serves various industry sectors, such as: transportation (automotive, rail, and marine), consumer electronics, energy storage systems (including grid application), and industrial heavy equipment and tool markets worldwide.
TODA America’s plans for the North American cathode materials production facility has progressed beyond expectations. TODA America is planning for substantial further investment in the U.S., paced with the expected growth of the global LIB battery manufacturing industry. TODA America continues to collaborate closely with federal, state, and local stakeholders and to engage in creative industrial partnering options. We are poised to serve as a key contributor in the development of a robust advanced global battery manufacturing industry.
