To support the growing need for mobility, BASF is developing innovative technologies like cathode active materials that make battery cells more powerful, reliable and affordable. Through the development of cathode active materials, BASF is offering EV makers an opportunity to improve performance at lower costs with innovative application of chemistry. Determined to bring cathode active materials to the next level of efficiency to support the ongoing evolution of e-mobility, and to change chemical composition, morphology (form and structure) and production process, BASF is looking at delivering the highest energy density cathode active materials in the market. These efforts, by 2025, should help to realise a vision of an electric mid-size vehicle having twice the real driving range (from 300 km to 600 km on a single charge) and battery lifetime, half the battery size and cost, and a charging time reduced to 15 minutes, said a BASF source.
