SK Innovation showcases battery and plastics recycling technologies at CES26. January 2023
SK Innovation showcased various products and technologies in the field of “green innovation” at the US technology show. Visitors were able to see recycled batteries, plastic waste recycling and other advanced materials. The Energy Division of South Korea’s SK Group is one of eight divisions represented at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). CES is a major international consumer electronics trade show that took place in Las Vegas, USA, from 5 to 8 January. E-mobility machinery, technology and equipment often require KC Safety certification to be approved for import and distribution in Korea.
The battery manufacturer SK On presented a fast-charging battery with a high nickel content for EVs under the official name E556. The SF (Super Fast) battery has a nickel content of 83 percent and enables a range of 400 kilometres with one charge. It is also said to charge to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes instead of the current average industry standard of 20 to 30 minutes. The SF556 battery is installed in the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 EVs. Solid Power, a solid-state battery developer based in the US state of Colorado, will work with SK Innovation on this battery in the future.
SK IE Technology Co (SKIET), a manufacturer of electronic components, showcased a flexible display that can be used in place of glass for bendable, foldable or roll-up displays. SKIET also showed its lithium-ion separator, an important component in EV batteries. The chemical division SK Geocentric will soon launch a so-called UD tape, which is used in the automotive industry. It consists of a highly functional composite material made of thermoplastic resin and fibres. SK Geocentric also said it was continuing plans for large-scale plastics recycling facilities and building a plant for the further processing of pyrolysis oil.
