SHANGHAI, Aug 30 (SMM) – China's major lithium producer Ganfeng Lithium this year will commission a trial production line that can turn out more than 100 MWh of solid-state lithium batteries in a year.

Ganfeng said in its first-half report on August 29 that its first-generation solid-state battery samples have passed multiple safety tests by third parties and their clients.

Solid-state lithium batteries are potentially safer than conventional lithium products and boast a higher energy density, but are also much more costly to manufacture.

In April, the company signed a memorandum of understanding with Volkswagen to secure supplies for the German carmaker’s electric car plans for the next decade. The German company in return will co-operate on recycling efforts and solid-state battery R&D.
