Energising the UK battery supply chain – Chemistry Council workshop

Organised by:

SCI and proudly supported by the Chemistry Council Innovation Committee

Online Webinar: 10:00-12:00 GMT

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


A major focus of SCI’s work with the Chemistry Council recognises that the government in its Road to Net Zero, is banning the sale of all internal combustion engines and hybrid vehicles by 2035 or earlier. We must therefore rapidly expand a fully integrated battery supply chain, to adequately support the bourgeoning electric car industry.


As part of our programme to deliver this, SCI is bringing together chemists, suppliers, manufacturers and innovators at every point within the supply chain, to identify the requirements of a gigafactory scale-up of electric vehicle production within the UK.  


In an SCI-led Workshop this November, supported by Synthomer and Johnson Matthey, key stakeholders will be joining us for a focused discussion on the chemical processes and innovations essential to scaling-up this industry effectively. We hope the Workshop will kickstart the process of building the collaborations necessary to deliver an effective supply chain for this important new industry.  


If you are interested in joining us for this important discussion and connecting with other key stakeholders of tomorrow’s battery industry, then please register your interest above.


Attendees will need to come to the meeting prepared to actively contribute to the discussions above, therefore SCI reserves the right to request additional information about a delegate’s experience in this landscape prior to confirming their place.
