The plant, expected to be operational by 2024, will produce approximately 1,000 batteries daily. The CSIR is also in charge of extracting rare earth minerals used in Li-ion batteries.
- The plant, expected to be operational by 2024, will produce approximately 1,000 batteries daily.
- The facility’s batteries would primarily be used in consumer electronics applications.
- The CSIR researchers are also in charge of extracting rare earth minerals used in Li-ion batteries.
- Monazite sand can be found on the majority of our beaches in the south.
CSIR is set up a Li-ion battery-making plant in Chennai to help India stop being dependent on imports from countries like China and South Korea.
CECRI is a unit of the CSIR which is focused on lithium-ion batteries. It is being built in CSIR’s Madras complex at Taramani, Chennai.
These batteries are expected to last five to 10 years, more than current lithium-ion batteries. They will also be cheaper than the current lithium-ion batteries.
It will be cheaper than the existing batteries and will be smaller in size.
The facility is slated to be operational by 2024 and will enable scientists to develop novel lithium-ion batteries for different applications.
Batteries that would be made at the plant are expected to be used for consumer electronics.
CECRI aims to bring in outside experts to help train the technology industry and provide plug-and-play services to businesses.
He added that this is a very new technology, and we are trying to show the industry how it can work on a large scale.
CSIR scientists are working on extracting rare earth minerals used in the production of lithium-ion batteries.
Soon we will be importing more lithium-ion batteries produced at a facility near Chennai. We will get some good raw materials here in India. Most Indian beaches have some rare earth minerals in them.
CERCI is collaborating with private companies on a revenue-sharing model to manufacture the lithium-ion batteries that India needs. The facility has 3,000 cells and can make 100 batteries a day.
