Next-generation battery materials company Sila announced it has purchased 60,000 square feet of manufacturing space near Moses Lake, Washington for production of its cutting-edge lithium-ion anode materials at automotive volumes and quality.

In a recent statement, the company cited its commitment to ensure the United States’ global leadership in the world’s energy storage space. Sila is making an initial investment to produce annual silicon-based anode production enough to power batteries in up to 100,000-500,000 premium electric vehicles and 500 million mobile phones annually.

The new facility, situated on 160 acres, is the culmination of ten years of research and development and 55,000 iterations. Founded in 2011, Sila was the first to industrialize and make commercially available a next generation lithium-ion chemistry with dramatically higher energy density. Notable applications for its technology include powering the WHOOP 4.0, the world’s most advanced fitness tracker and the same materials technology will now be produced at the Moses Lake plant to power electric vehicles, mobile phones and other consumer electronics.

Said Gene Berdichevsky, Co-founder, and CEO of Sila, “The U.S. has always excelled at innovation. Now we must also excel at manufacturing that innovation. Sila is delivering proven next-generation anode materials today. Our new Washington state plant builds on that momentum offering the manufacturing capacity to meet the needs of our auto partners on their way to a fully electric future. We’ve been working towards automotive quality standards and scale since our start to ensure longer range, faster charge times, and lower battery cost. With this scale-up, we have a pivotal piece to realize the full potential of next-generation materials at the volumes required to make a global impact.”

Production lines at new Moses Lake facility will start-up in the second half of 2024, with full start of production underway in the first half of 2025.
