Vianode, a part of Elkem, is a manufacturer of sustainable battery materials that increase safety and reduce charging time in electric vehicles and other sophisticated applications for energy storage.
With the help of renewable hydropower, revolutionary technology and cleaner processing, Vianode plans to reduce emissions for the production of the battery material synthetic graphite by over 90 percent. Vianode is also working on the development of silicon-graphite composite materials.
In April 2021, Vianode opened an advanced, industrial pilot plant in Kristiansand. Vianode plans to establish a fast-track factory and a large-scale plant in Herøya industrial park.
