The Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET) under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) seeks co-funding industrial partners to design and develop machinery for lithium-ion (Li-ion) and sodium-ion (Na-ion) battery cell manufacturing and transfer the end-to-end indigenous technology for cell manufacturing in India.
Notably, the C-MET has developed indigenous, cost-effective technologies for the development of Li-ion and Na-ion batteries as it looks to support the industry in commercial applications such as electric vehicles.
Under C-MET’s Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Rechargeable Battery Technology [pre-cell], the collaboration opportunity is open to public-sector units, Navratna companies, and private companies or consortium thereof in the country.
The project is planned to achieve self-sustenance within five years through revenue generation from technical and consultancy services primarily to the industry.
The selected industry partner will provide funding support of Rs 4 crore, including the design and development of machinery related to Li-ion and Na-ion battery cell manufacturing to be placed at C-MET, Pune.
The machinery includes a battery cycler system (450V, 200A with thermal chamber) for testing of various types of cells and batteries of different capacities and voltages ranging from 3V single cells for mobile phones to large battery packs (up to 450 V) for electric vehicles, laser welding machine for prismatic cells, and continuous electrode coating machine.
The industry partner will get a proportionate share in the revenue generated from the know-how and intellectual property right developed from the collaboration activity.
