Chennai-based Munoth Industries Ltd. (MIL), promoted by the renowned Munoth Group, is setting up India’s first lithium-ion cell manufacturing unit in Electronic Manufacturing Cluster 2 (EMC 2) in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. The unit will be able to meet 60% of the country’s lithium-ion cell requirement which is currently completely imported from countries including South Korea, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and China. Divided into three phases, the project entails a total investment of INR 799 crores on a 30-acre operational space.
Manufacturing lithium-ion cells is not only technically complex but also requires a controlled production environment with very low humidity conditions and a low particulate facility. The assembly steps usually require a cleanroom as well as separate cleaning and packaging areas to make sure that substrates do not cause any contamination during the process. Moreover, since lithium is reactive in nature with moisture present in the air, there is also a requirement for specialized dry rooms.
