Comprehensive supplier of precursor cathode active materials (pCAM) to the battery industry

As an integrated company, CNGR benefits from strategic advantages such as improved self-sufficiency, cost reduction or efficiency gains to better serve our customers.

Stabilising raw material supplies

Sudden and large increases in demand can lead to imbalances in the supply of raw materials. To achieve an independent, predictable and stable raw material supply, CNGR has established a closed-loop integrated industrial chain of “raw ore smelting — raw material refining — pCAM production — recycling”.

Cost control

Raw materials used to produce precursors account for more than 90% of operating costs. CNGR can better control costs and be more competitive by controlling the entire process.

Recycling of used batteries

Through mutually beneficial cooperation with domestic and overseas enterprises, CNGR has established a global recycling industrial chain for used batteries with a complete recycling technology platform. This powerful technology reduces the environmental impact of used batteries and supports our customers’ efforts to meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements.

Material products

CNGR is committed to diversifying, customising and rapidly expanding the mass production of cathode precursor active materials and related technical and industrial service capabilities. By implementing a technology diversification strategy, CNGR has achieved full coverage and mass production of pCAM materials comprising nickel, cobalt, phosphorus and those related to sodium-ion battery.

There are currently four main leading product families, namely high voltage tricobalt tetraoxide, ternary precursors (NCA and NMC precursors), iron phosphate and for sodium-ion battery, sodium precursors and sodium-ion cathode materials.

These products play an essential role in the manufacturing process of cathode materials and are widely used in electric vehicles (PHEV and EV), consumer electronics (3C market) and energy storage systems (ESS). The sodium-ion battery is a newer technology that is beginning to emerge for energy storage and some electric vehicles.

Raw material products

The precursor production processes require a high-quality supply of nickel sulphate, cobalt sulphate, manganese sulphate (or aluminium sulphate), cobalt chloride and other similar materials.

Nickel related products

Nickel sulfate (NiSO4)

Mainly used for electroplating, nickel battery, catalyst and production of other nickel salts, also used for printing and dyeing agents, metal colouring agents, etc.

Electrolytic nickel (Ni)

Electrolytic nickel is mainly used in nuclear energy industry, alkaline battery, electrical alloy, high temperature and high strength alloy, catalyst and powder metallurgy additive, diamond tools, non-iron based alloy and hydrogenation catalyst for organic synthesis.

Cobalt intermediate products

Cobalt sulphate (CoSO4•7H20)

Used in the manufacture of cobalt salts, paint desiccant, cobalt pigments, alkaline battery additives and electroplating.

Cobalt chloride (CoCI2•6H20)

It is mainly used as paint desiccant, ammonia gas absorption, dry and wet indicator, electroplating, ceramic colouring agent and medical reagent.
