Construction is starting in Moses Lake on Clayco’s latest EV battery manufacturing project for Group14 Technologies. Group14 Technologies, a global manufacturer and supplier of advanced silicon battery technology, has created their one-million-square-foot campus to be home to the world’s largest factory of advanced silicon battery materials for EV programs to meet global decarbonization targets. This project is the second plant planned to produce silicon battery materials in the US.
The plant is expected to open the first two of up to six planned manufacturing modules in 2024. It will employ 200 employees for day-to-day operations, including manufacturing workers and engineers. The plant’s initial two modules will each be capable of producing 2,000 tons per year of advanced silicon battery material.
