Entek and Brueckner Group USA expand partnership


Entek, Lebanon, Oregon, a producer of “wet-process” lithium-ion battery separator materials, has announced that in an effort to support the growing U.S. electric vehicle and energy storage demand, it will expand its production capacity in addition to its earlier announced 1.4 billion square-meters-per-year project which was selected for a Department of Energy grant award.

The company has signed agreements for 18 separator film production lines with Dover, New Hampshire-based Brueckner Group USA.

“We will create American jobs producing lithium battery components, using the most advanced technologies, and meeting the cleanest environmental standards in the world,” Entek CTO Rick Pekala says. “Brueckner’s newest generation biaxial stretching film equipment together with Entek’s material science, coating, recycling and separator production expertise fulfills this mission.”

Brueckner Director of Sales and Marketing Karl Zimmerman adds, “This extraordinary partnership fills us with great pride. As two pioneers join forces, we know we will build something outstanding together to create innovative, sustainable and reliable plants for battery separator films in America.”
