In early 2020, the World Economic Forum’s Global Battery Alliance (GBA) introduced the “Battery Passport,” a list of ten guiding principles to develop a sustainable battery value chain by 2030.
The Battery Passport and accompanying guidelines are aimed at promoting social and environmental sustainability on the global stage, by ascertaining that finalized battery products be ethically sourced, produced, and recycled. The program will have substantial ramifications for the battery material supply industry, as ensuring regulatory compliance will significantly disrupt current sourcing methods, for the greater good.
HPQ Silicon’s sustainable supply of high purity silicon metal nano-powders for Li-ion batteries will play an important role in helping battery manufacturers fulfill one piece of compliance. The below “Quick Insight” video produced by pvbuzz.com explains how:
Since 2015, HPQ Silicon Resources Inc has been working on developing a new one-step process to manufacture High Purity Silicon (Si) and transforming that Si into the nano size Si powders that batteries manufacturers need.
