Toray Industries, Inc., one of the largest battery separator films manufacturer from Japan announced on 16 July the construction of a new production facility for battery separator films (BSF) for lithium-ion batteries in Nyergesújfalu, Hungary.
The new manufacturing site will be affiliated with the Toray Industries Hungary area, which was established in April 2018. The additional BSF production is scheduled to start operations in July 2021 and will increase the Toray Group’s total BSF production capacity by approximately 20%.
Global demand for BSF is expanding rapidly, especially for consumer applications, energy storage systems, and automotive applications like electric vehicles.
As Europe shows the biggest demand, Toray has taken the basic strategic approach of “local production for local consumption” in its overseas business development – and also contributes to the economic development of local regions and communities and the increasing environmental awareness.
