Ube to launch commercial production of artificial micro carbon

 

TOKYO, JAPAN: Ube Industries Ltd will start commercial production of proprietary artificial micro carbon (AMC). The company is currently proceeding with the construction of production line for AMC within the Ube chemical factory located in Ube City, Yamaguchi prefecture. The production capacity will be 20 tonne to be completed in October 2011.

AMC utilizes a proprietary catalyst and manufacturing process developed by Ube Industries. AMC supply will be in the form of powder, solvent and pellet. Ube Industries developed AMC by leveraging technical expertise and experience gained from manufacturing electrolytes and separators for lithium-ion batteries. The company anticipates growing demand for AMC as a way to enhance the conductivity of anode and cathode electrodes in lithium-ion batteries.

AMC can also be mixed with thermoplastic resins such as nylon, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate to give the resins electrical conductivity.

Ube Industries is targeting net sales of ¥ 5 to 10 billion by fiscal 2015 from the AMC business.
