Redwood is paving the way towards a greener future with their new Battery Materials Campus situated in the bustling ‘Battery Belt’ adjacent to Charleston, South Carolina.
Their approach to recycling, refining, and remanufacturing results in battery materials that are then provided back to U.S. battery cell manufacturers. This involves taking end-of-life batteries and breaking them down into basic elements such as nickel, copper, cobalt, and lithium, before reconstructing these components into the necessary cathode and anode products for electric vehicles (EVs).
The localization of critical battery components production along with ensuring they are recycled is the only way to reduce costs, emissions, and geopolitical risks while meeting U.S. needs for batteries and electricity sources alike – all designed with sustainability at its core!
Redwood is thrilled to announce its newest Battery Materials Campus, situated in the “Battery Belt” just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. Camp Hall in Berkeley County will house the state-of-the-art facility, which will occupy over 600 acres and create 1,500 jobs for locals. The company will pour massive investments into the local economy, with $3.5 billion dedicated to streamlining the production of anode and cathode components at the site. Upon completion, Redwood’s Carolina Campus can reach a capacity of 100 GWh annually – enough energy to power more than one million electric vehicles – with further potential for expansion should future demands call for it. Construction on the new campus is slated to begin in Q1 2023 and Redwood plans to have its first recycling process running by year’s end.
