The "Secondary Battery Materials, Parts and Equipment Exhibition (K-Battery Show 2023)," which covers all domestic battery materials and components, was held at KINTEX Exhibition Center 1 in Ilsan, Goyang, Gyeonggi-do from the 13th to the 15th.

The event also introduced new trends across the secondary battery industry ecosystem, with four key materials for batteries, such as anode materials, cathode materials, separators, and electrolytes, battery applications such as electric vehicles and ESS, and reuse and recycling companies.

In particular, the exhibition, which participated in 150 companies in 2022, had 230 companies participating in about 500 booths this year, predicting the future of the larger secondary battery market.

Major participating companies include ▲LS Wire ▲ Nano-Integr ▲ Hyundai ENG ▲ Von Roll (Switzerland) ▲ Forge Nano (US) ▲ Riedhammer (Germany) ▲ Gyeongbuk Techno Park ▲ Korea Construction and Living Environment Testing Institute.

"In the market environment changing into the fourth industrial revolution, the secondary battery industry will become a key technology in various applications ranging from electric vehicles and ESS to the robot industry in the future," said Kim Jung-jo, CEO of E&X Korea.

◆ from logistics to start-ups

NanoIntek, a manufacturer of equipment such as grinders and dispersers that are applied to various fields such as electronic materials, ceramics, coating agents, and ink, participated in the "K-Battery Show" by declaring the expansion of the secondary battery business in earnest.

In the secondary battery field, it has participated in the secondary battery manufacturing process of large companies by producing equipment that processes copper foil surfaces, but this exhibition even unveiled battery solutions for the first time.

NanoIntek plans to utilize NanoIntek battery modules designed with LG Li-ion pouch cells based on battery pack design and analysis technology and BMS technology for automobile solutions. It will supply batteries that replace lead-acid batteries used in existing golf carts, LSVs, and electric boats, and electric buses are scheduled to be delivered next month.

Currently, it has invested about 20 billion won to build a 4,000㎡ factory equipped with an automation system to produce battery packs for low-speed electric vehicles, which can produce about 75,000 packs a year, a NanoIntek official explained.

International logistics giants with annual sales of 1 trillion also appeared at the K-battery show. It's Taewoong Logics. Based on the existing petrochemical business, the company has been transforming into a secondary battery logistics company with the growth of secondary batteries. It has provided a wide range of comprehensive logistics services such as import and export, aviation, railroads, projects, customs clearance, insurance, unloading, and inland transportation around the world.

In particular, ISO tanks, which are containers for transporting liquid cargo manufactured according to international standards, are designed and used in the form of cylindrical containers installed in the frame of the 20 FT general dry container standard, and have strengths in transportation such as electrolytes and organic solvents.

TaewoongLogics is one of the pillars of the transportation role of the secondary battery industry, including transporting dangerous goods such as anode materials, cathode materials, and separators, and transporting lithium (salt) production facilities and finished products. It is already preparing to serve as a key production base for domestic battery manufacturers by establishing 14 overseas branches in 10 countries around the world. As domestic companies are becoming more active in entering foreign countries, greater growth is expected in the future.

Solivis, a leading all-solid-state battery startup, showcased sulfide-based battery technology at this exhibition. Sulfide solid electrolytes are the most likely materials to be applied to all-solid-state batteries. Currently, Solivis has technology such as sulfide-based solid electrolyte mass production process technology, raw material mass production-refining technology, and 75 patents at home and abroad, and is considered the best item to solve the fire problem, which is the biggest disadvantage of the battery.

However, although it is in the pilot stage by supplying sample supplies to Samsung SDI and Yumi Core, it is planning to start the production process in earnest from next year by finding the site and starting the completion of the plant.

A Solivis official said, "We are currently preparing to produce electrolytes, but we are planning to produce batteries eventually."
