Vikram Handa, managing director of Epsilon Group said:

At Epsilon, we envision a world galvanized by sustainable energy alternatives.

“Our advancement in anode research and manufacturing was a first step, and this acquisition underscores our commitment to serving our global clientele with sustainable and reliable material.”

Strategic Advantages

The Moosburg research and development (R&D) center’s strategic location offers Epsilon a unique advantage to tap into the European battery material’s talent pool and to cater to its global clientele. By leveraging the existing infrastructure and capabilities of the Moosburg facility, Epsilon aims to significantly reduce the technology development and scale-up timeframe.

This acquisition serves as a catalyst for Epsilon’s ambitious plans to eventually cater to 100 GwH of demands. In alignment with its vision, Epsilon has previously announced a $1.1 billion investment in the establishment of a 100,000-ton cathode battery materials manufacturing facility in Bellari, Karnataka, India, with subsequent expansions in Europe. Epsilon also has plans for a $650 million manufacturing facility in the U.S.

The global electric vehicle market, valued at $380 billion in 2022, is projected to soar to $1.5 trillion by 2030, according to Fortune Business Insights. Cathode materials are pivotal to this growth trajectory. Benchmark’s report further underscores the urgency, indicating a need for $40 billion in cathode materials production investments to bridge the gap between the current supply and anticipated demand by 2030.
