SK Innovation Considers Ditching US Battery Plants (Ind. Report)
SK Innovation
Date: 2021-03-29
South Korean battery maker SK Innovation reports it is considering pulling the plug on its $2.7 billion electric vehicle battery manufacturing plant and halting construction of a second battery manufacturing plant in Commerce City, Georgia, as well as other U.S. operations. Combined, the two facilities would have a combined production capacity of 20 gigawatt-hours a year, enough for 250,000 electric vehicles and create 2,600 jobs.

The company's position is in response the US International Trade Commission's February finding that SK had "misappropriated" 22 trade secrets from its rival LG Chem. The two firms have as yet been unable to come to a mutually agreeable compensation settlement for SK's "misappropriation.

The ITC, while slapping the firm with a 10-year business ban, has allowed SK Innovation a grace period of up to four years for it to continue supplying Volkswagen and Ford. (Source: SK Innovation, Korea Herald, 28 Mar., 2021) Contact: SK innovation, www.eng.skinnovation.com
