Recent Developments



  • November 21- Solus Advanced Materials is expanding its business to North America. The company has a well-established position in the Canadian copper foil market. The South Korean battery foil maker earlier called Doosan Solus revealed that it had bought a copper foil plant site with a yearly production capacity of 60,000 tons in Quebec, Canada.
    The plant was earlier a Solus property. Built in 2001 by its European unit Circuit Foil Luxembourg, the firm finished operation in 2014, when South Korean conglomerate Doosan acquired it. Doosan had barred the facility at the time of the acquisition.

  • May 2021- LG Chem has bought shares worth 40 billion won (USD35.5 million) in a Chinese firm that manufactures copper foils for electric vehicle batteries, Jiujiang DeFu Technology.
    A copper foil refers to a sheet, which is 15 times thinner than a strand of hair. Copper foil is the battery’s negative side or where electricity flows in the battery’s anodes. The thinness of the copper foil decides the number of items to be packed inside, making batteries more powerful.

  • Dec 2020 South Korea's Iljin Materials will construct a 3.8-billion-forint (EUR 10.7) copper foil factory in Gödöllő, on the borders of the capital, to provide Samsung SDI's mounting local manufacture capacity for electric vehicle batteries. The administration is backing the building of the plant, which will have a yearly output of about 10,000 tonnes, with a 722-million-forint grant. Numerous South Korean battery producers have set up plants in Hungary with the biggest capacities in the world.



  • Nov 2020 Co-Tech Development,a Taiwan-based copper foil maker might observe its consignments for high-frequency and high-speed CCL uses rise 20% on year in 2021, largely driven by the introduction of Intel's new Whitley CPU platform in the first-quarter of  2021.



  • Nov 2020 Doosan Solus Co., a South Korean copper foil maker, said recently that it has begun battery cooper foil's commercial manufacture at its Hungary factory. Doosan Solus in last August, finished its battery copper foil factory in Hungary with a volume of 10,000 tons. The firm plans to upsurge its yearly production capability to 75,000 tons by 2025 to meet rising demand for battery copper foil in the European regional market.
