Samsung SDI begins construction of the world’s first pilot plant to produce solid-state batteries

Samsung SDI could soon be one of the few vehicle battery manufacturers to operate a pilot plant for the production of solid-state batteries. To this end, ground was broken at the beginning of March for a factory for the pilot production of solid-state battery cells at Samsung’s research and development centre in Suwon, 34 kilometres south of Seoul. The South Korean company expects to mass produce next-generation batteries around 2027, three years ahead of domestic rivals LG Energy Solution Ltd. and SK On Co.
Equipment and components necessary for the production of batteries require KC certification to a large extent in order to be sold on the Korean market.



The plant, dubbed “S-Line” by Samsung, is seen as a milestone for an important technological advance, excellent quality and consistent growth, Chief Executive Officer Choi Yoon-ho said during groundbreaking ceremonies. The pilot plant covers 6,500 square metres and includes the latest production processes and facilities in battery manufacturing. Once construction is complete, Samsung says it will initially produce solid-state batteries for testing purposes. The findings from this are expected to accelerate the development of the so-called “Dream Battery”, with which Samsung hopes to extend its lead over domestic and foreign battery manufacturers.

Solid-state batteries have no separating layer between the cathode and anode and consist of solid electrolytes that store ions. In contrast, lithium-ion batteries have a liquid electrolyte that allows the lithium ions to move between the anode, separating layer and cathode. By omitting the flammable liquid electrolyte solution in lithium-ion batteries, solid-state batteries are considered safer, more durable and also allow for faster charging times. According to insiders from the battery industry, the solid-state batteries developed by Samsung SDI consist of sulphite electrolytes, for which the company has already secured corresponding technologies and patents. Samsung is currently in the final review of its technologies. This should be completed for small cells in 2023, medium and large cells should be ready for the market in 2025.
