Zaozhuang, September 9, China News Network (Reporter Sha Jianlong) The 16 Zaozhuang International Lithium Battery Industry Exhibition opened in Zaozhuang, Shandong on the 2023th. More than 16 domestic and foreign experts, scholars and enterprise representatives in the field of lithium batteries attended the meeting to discuss and cooperate on cutting-edge scientific and technological achievements and industrial information in the lithium battery industry to help the green and low-carbon development of the economy and society.

New Era China Energy Technology Co., Ltd. from Zhejiang came to the conference with retired lithium batteries and cobalt-nickel resource recycling projects. According to Cui Changyin, general manager of the company's echelon utilization business department, the company focuses on providing high-value services in the new energy industry, with an annual production capacity of dismantling 5,<> tons of decommissioned lithium batteries, mature process technology, high degree of automation, high level of environmental protection, and better cost.

Cui Changyin said that the company has gathered and cultivated senior technical and management teams in the industry, carried out industry-university-research cooperation with many universities, and jointly built scientific research platforms such as academician expert workstations, postdoctoral mobile stations, and provincial R&D centers, hoping to establish cooperative relations with more industry enterprises through this exhibition, and promote the development of the new energy industry based on resource recycling business.

As a R&D and production enterprise of lithium-ion battery electrolytes, Yienke Tianrun New Energy Materials (Shandong) Co., Ltd., located in Zaozhuang High-tech Zone, made its new high-nickel ternary additives and 4.48V high-voltage products with long cycle life unveiled at the exhibition. Ye Fuchen, general manager of the company, told reporters that the company is a Sino-Korean joint venture, and a number of star products are widely used in intelligent manufacturing, new energy vehicle power batteries, communication base stations and clean energy backup batteries, smart grid energy storage power and other industries, in addition to meeting the needs of local enterprises, but also sold to Jiangxi, Anhui, Guangdong and other places.

Ye Fuchen said that the unique electrolyte additive W2 can solve the problems of gas production and fast cycle decay of power batteries containing high-nickel ternary cathodes, and extend the cycle life by more than 30%. In addition, the company has cooperated with leading international digital battery factories to develop 4.48V high-voltage products with long cycle life, which are superior in performance and lower in price than existing 4.45V products.

At the opening ceremony of the exhibition held on the same day, Zhang Shenfeng, member of the party group and vice president of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, said in his speech that the development of new energy industry is the only way for China to establish and improve a green and low-carbon circular development economic system and achieve high-quality and sustainable economic and social development, and the development of lithium battery industry is even more imperative. Zaozhuang City adheres to the whole regional layout, full chain coverage, and full-cycle services, the lithium battery industry is strong, the cluster effect is increasingly prominent, and the lithium battery new energy industry is ushering in a highlight moment of rapid development.

In Zhang Shenfeng's view, this exhibition is facing new opportunities for green energy development, is a pragmatic measure and action to help accelerate the construction of a new development pattern, explore a green, low-carbon and high-quality development path, will continue to build an international stage for the domestic and foreign lithium battery industry to display cutting-edge scientific and technological achievements, transmit the latest industrial information, and actively build an international platform for Sino-foreign lithium battery industry technology exchanges and industrial cooperation, and help China's economic and social green and low-carbon development.

Xu Hairong, member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Shandong Provincial Committee and director of the United Front Work Department, stressed that Shandong is anchored to "walk ahead and open a new situation", take the construction of a green, low-carbon and high-quality development pilot zone as the general grasp, and accelerate the construction of a modern socialist province in the new era. The province will, as always, support the development of the lithium battery industry in Zaozhuang City, increase support in digital empowerment, scientific and technological innovation, financial capital, factor guarantee, etc., and promote the high-end, green and intelligent development of the lithium battery industry in Zaozhuang City.

Statistics show that as of the end of August, the installed capacity of new and renewable energy power generation in Shandong Province reached 8.8625 million kilowatts, a year-on-year increase of 28%. The scale of new energy storage reached 283.123 million kilowatts, ranking first in the country, and there were 500 lithium battery manufacturers on the scale, with a total output value of more than <> billion yuan.

At the opening ceremony, Zhang Hongwei, Secretary of the Zaozhuang Municipal Party Committee of the Communist Party of China, said in his speech that in recent years, the city has always regarded lithium battery as the first industry to promote the transformation and development of the city to cultivate, continue to optimize the stock expansion incremental activation variable, adhere to scientific and technological innovation to shape competitive advantages, concentrate on cultivating hundreds of billions of lithium battery industry clusters, accelerate the promotion of aboveground energy instead of underground energy, green energy instead of black energy, emerging energy instead of traditional energy, and actively build China's new energy battery city.

Zhang Hongwei said that this exhibition has built a high-level platform for colliding with "lithium" and pursuing dreams of "lithium", and sincerely looks forward to working together with the majority of merchants, experts and scholars and investment and financing teams to forge ahead in deepening cooperation in both directions, achieve each other in cohesion and win-win, and jointly open a new "lithium" process of green, low-carbon and high-quality development.
