Silgrain® e-Si: The silicon of choice for the next generation of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries

The development of Silgrain® e-Si has been carried out in close cooperation with AIST Kansai, Japan, one of the leading centers for battery material development in the world.

Silicon for batteries

To support the upcoming market of silicon-based batteries, Elkem has utilised its vast experience in producing specialised silicon to develop tailored materials for final use as anodes of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. These are collected in our portfolio of Silgrain® e-Si products.
