6K a developer of specialist 3D printing materials has announced the establishment of a new Center of Excellence for its energy division 6K Energy. state-of-the-art facility will focus on the development of new sustainable battery materials for energy storage devices. As well as expanding the size of its dedicated product development team 6K Energy will equip the new facility with up to ten of its proprietary UniMelt material production systems. Starting off with a pilot production run the company eventually intends to scale up to mass production helping the U.S. alleviate supply chain risks with local clean energy-based battery material production. Former Congressman Joe Kennedy III a 6K board member said “The Biden administration’s executive order clearly outlines a commitment for the United States to lead clean energy technology especially in the area of batteries for electric vehicles. 6K’s Battery Center of Excellence in North Andover MA. Sustainable material production with UniMelt The UniMelt system is based on 6K’s microwave plasma process which converts millings turnings and other recycled feedstock into 3D printable metal powders. Now being applied to battery materials the technology reportedly offers sustainability benefits like “no other battery material production platform in the world”. For example 6K estimates that if a conventional battery cathode manufacturing facility were to be replaced with the UniMelt process water usage would be cut by 90% and 100% of the wastewater would be eliminated altogether. Kennedy adds “The new Center of Excellence will not only allow 6K to address the Biden administration’s concerns but it enables 6K’s key partners and players in the battery production space to take advantage of a scalable green process based in the US to fulfill the US supply chain requirements.” 6K Energy’s Center of Excellence Dr. Aaron Bent CEO of 6K concludes “Production of advanced materials for batteries is virtually non-existent in the United
