1 Minute Read
Johnson Matthey (JM), the global leader in sustainable technologies, is to open a new battery application centre at the business and science community of Milton Park in Oxfordshire. JM has taken 22,857 sq ft (2,123 sq m) over three floors at 142 Park Drive consisting of a newly built office and laboratory development.
JM is developing next-generation battery materials with improved energy density (so the mileage of battery electric vehicles between charges can be increased), pulse power (for improved acceleration) and safety, while minimising the use of expensive and scarce raw material such as cobalt. JM’s family of ultra-high energy density eLNO® cathode active materials delivers improvements in all these critical performance areas.
Dan Baker, Financial Director, Battery Materials at Johnson Matthey said: “Our site at Milton Park will be at the leading edge of battery technology. We will use our science and problem-solving ability here to work with leading automotive companies to develop tailored solutions for their applications. JM is a global leader in science and we believe this site will help us in our mission to make the world cleaner and healthier.”
