The faraday battery challenge (FBC) has awarded the High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult £12 million to deliver the facility through its centres.
The HVM Catapult’s centres are:
Centre for Process Innovation (CPI)
Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), University of Warwick
Access state-of-the-art equipment
FBC is enhancing battery scale-up support in the UK with a new facility that will give companies access to state-of-the-art materials synthesis and processing equipment.
This is part of a co-investment strategy between the FBC and the HVM Catapult.
FBC and the HVM Catapult are aligned to a common strategic vision for the UK battery scale up ecosystem to support the development of a battery supply chain in the UK.
The Advanced Materials Battery Industrialisation Centre (AMBIC), which will be delivered by the HVM Catapult, will provide innovation capability for the synthesis and processing of immediate and next generation battery materials.
