Vianode Receives 30-Million-Euro Grant

Norwegian battery material manufacturer Vianode has received a grant of 30 million euros from Innovation Norway as part of the IPCEI EUBatin program. The grant will support the development of the Herøya anode material plant, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2024. The IPCEI (Important Projects of Common European Interest) program aims to accelerate innovation for a “green transition” to the market on a large scale.

40% less energy consumption

Vianode plans to produce high-performance graphite anodes for three million electric vehicles per year in Europe and North America by 2030. The company currently has a small pilot production facility in Kristiansand. Anode graphite is an essential component of lithium-ion batteries. According to Vianode, up to 70 kilograms of anode graphite per battery pack are used in an electric car. Vianode claims that its production process enables a 90% reduction in carbon footprint, a 40% reduction in energy consumption, and significant savings in auxiliary materials, local emissions, land and water consumption compared to conventional processes.
