Redwood has announced a new Battery Materials Campus in the heart of the Battery Belt, just outside of Charleston in South Carolina. At Camp Hall in Berkeley County, Redwood will recycle, refine and manufacture anode and cathode components on more than 600 acres, creating more than 1,500 jobs and investing USD 3.5 billion in the local community. Eventually, this campus will produce 100 GWh of cathode and anode components per year Redwood plans to break ground on its Carolina Campus in Q1 2023 and have its first recycling process running by the end of next year. The company will build-out downstream component manufacturing and scale, step-by-step. Similar to the company’s Nevada operations, Redwood’s South Carolina operations will be 100% electric and won’t use any fossil fuel in processes (not even pulling a gas line to the site). Redwood will source only zero emission, clean energy and the company’s innovative plant design and manufacturing process will allow it to reduce the CO2 emissions associated with producing these components by about 80% compared to the current Asia-based supply chain that the company are dependent on for these crucial materials. Redwood combines recycling, refining and remanufacturing to produce and return battery materials to US battery cell manufacturers. The company takes in end-of-life batteries, breaks them down to their basic metals (like nickel, copper, cobalt, and lithium) and then rebuilds those metals into cathode and anode products, the most critical and expensive components in an EV.
