Battery Grade MaterialsInnovation in Battery Technologies
BG Materials (BGM) is a specialty materials supplier to the battery and advanced electronics industry. The Company has developed proprietary processes to produce low-cost Nickel Hydroxide, Cobalt, Zinc Oxide and Calcium Zincate that meet the needs of the battery industry.
BGM’s low-carbon footprint (LCF) Nickel Hydroxide incorporates processes that reduce the environmental impact in the mining, transportation, smelting and refining of traditional Nickel.
Calcium zincate has a chemical formula of CaZn2(OH)6∙2H2O and is mainly used as an active material in the negative electrode in zinc-based battery chemistries, such as Nickel-Zinc and Zinc-Air.
BGM’s objective is to provide conflict free metals and the lowest-carbon-footprint (LCF) chemistries to the battery industry. Our business model leverages the proven Caron processes and targets strategic zinc and nickel mines to produce low-cost battery chemistries with an emphasis on reducing overall carbon outputs associated with traditional mining processes, In addition, BGM is finalizing the development of sustainable “smelter free” recycling of Nickel Zinc batteries and returning all recycled components back into battery grade specifications
