Breaking ground for our large-scale 8.000 tpa production!

11 July 2023 – Kaiserslautern/Germany

Last week, the construction work for our outdoor tank farm started! Initially, there will be 4 x 100 m³  solvent tanks with 2 x 50 m³ chambers each! We transfer the solvents from the tanks directly and automatically controlled into our reactors!  And this is only a small part of our new and innovative production plant!

Our pilot plant is on the move!

2.4 tons of our high quality electrolyte in 200 L drums have made their way to one of our European customers

14 June 2023 – Kaiserlautern/Germany

Today, 2.4 tons of our high-quality electrolyte in 200 L barrels found their way to one of our European customers! And that was just the beginning! We are proud to be able to contribute an important part to the development of the European battery ecosystem with our electrolyte production!

We are doubling our production capacity!

E-Lyte News - double production capacity

!!!Exciting news!!! We are doubling our planned production capacity. Instead of the planned 4,000 tons per year, our new plant will be able to produce 8,000 tons per year! Construction is in full swing. Recently two 20m3 storage tanks for our electrolytes were delivered.

To meet the high demand for tailor-made electrolyte solutions, our production plant, which was already designed for scaling in the initial planning, is now being completed for a throughput of at least 8,000 tons of electrolyte solution per year. The plant is on track to start production in early 2024 and is expected to be expanded by 2026. Furthermore, what is special about our plant is that due to its unique flexible design and high degree of digitalization, the plant is not limited to specific electrolyte formulations! Part of our mission is to produce the perfect electrolyte for each energy storage system. We will remain true to this mission also with our large-scale production!

The first 200 L barrels are on their way to our customer's cell production!

Interview mit Dr. Ralf Wagner

Since the beginning of this year, our pilot plant in Kaiserslautern, where high-quality electrolytes are produced in a unique process, has been running at full speed.

In an interview in “Wir.Hier – Die Chemieunternehmen in Rheinland-Pfalz” (Wir.Hier – Chemical Companies in Rhineland-Palatinate), our Managing Director Ralf Wagner, PhD, answers the question of how his early vision of founding a company made it possible for E-Lyte to grow from a small electrolyte manufacturer to an internationally competitive large-scale producer within a very short time.
