Cathode Active Materials

BASF’s portfolio of application-specific cathode active materials supports lithium-ion battery technology for electrified vehicles with high energy density, safety and efficiency.

BASF’s portfolio of application-specific cathode active materials supports lithium-ion battery technology for electrified vehicles with high energy density, safety and efficiency. 

Our HED™ product family is a high-energy cathode active material for lithium-ion batteries that is well-suited to the evolving requirements of batteries in automotive drivetrains. Its high degree of purity and excellent product characteristics are bolstered by BASF’s proven ability to jointly develop products with customers. Meanwhile, BASF has a worldwide license to produce and market lithium-ion battery materials from Argonne National laboratories (ANL)—the global leader in Nickel Cobalt Manganese (NCM) technology.

Here’s a peek at two types of cathode active material that BASF powers the global battery technology market and how each type is used:
