BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Solvay’s Global Business Unit Aroma Performance will supply two Bollore Group affiliates, Batscap and BatHium Canada Inc, with specialty lithium salt grades (LiTFSI) for their lithium-metal-polymer (LMP) batteries. Aroma Performance will manufacture its lithium salt electrolytes in its manufacturing specialty fluorinated derivatives plant at Salindres, France and in China.

This contract complements the strategic supply contract with both companies for specialty grades of Solvay’s high performance polymer Solef PVDF which it struck last year. Both supply contracts are a result of a common R&D programme of both groups. “This signature with a worldwide leader in energy storage represents a significant step in the development of LiTFSI solutions answering to the high safety and performance requirements of large capacity electric batteries,” said Jean-Francois Mousset, Battery Development Business Director, Aroma Performance.

“LiTFSI is a prime material to enhance performance of our LMP batteries. The contract that was signed with one of the leaders in fluorinated products secures BatScap’s supply and will most certainly support our growth,” added Jean-Luc Montfort, General Manager, BatHium Canada.

Within the Bollore Group, Batscap and BatHium, are world leaders in the design of energy modules using lithium-metal-polymer. BatScap and BatHium are also specialized in manufacturing unique and innovative high-tech batteries for electric vehicles.
