Green technologies: a promising application for ERACHEM Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD)

Friday, October 31, 2014

2014 has been the year of rising green technologies. For the first time, sales of green vehicles have been significantly growing especially in the USA, sales of smartphones and tablets have tremendously increased compared to other consumer electronics devices: proof that we have entered a new era.

Each and any of the application mentioned above are powered by lithium-ion battery technologies. If li-ion battery materials are promising, Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) is a player (among others) in the race for being the critical material to a better battery performance.

Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) could be used as the manganese component to cathode active material, critical to the battery performance. ERACHEM Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) has already been considered by key industry players as one of the most reliable for Lithium Manganese Oxide (LMO) cathode technology.

ERACHEM Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) is known as a high performance product, already used by the alkaline and primary li-ion battery industry pioneers.

ERACHEM Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) is manufactured in two locations: New Johnsonville, Tennessee - with an annual capacity of 32KT - known as the largest North American plant for Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) and in Chongzuo, China – with an annual capacity of 25KT – serving Asia and European customers.

In addition to Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD), ERACHEM has developed a new product Mn3O4 LB which will be added to its existing portfolio targeted to li-ion batteries applications (Manganese Sulfate (MnSO4 HP) manufactured in Belgium, and Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide (EMD) manufactured in the USA and in China).
