Press Releases/ Announcement
Taiwan’s leading engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) group CTCI announced that it has won the bid to provide consultancy service on solid-state battery lifecycle assessment for ProLogium Technology, a global leading next-generation solid-state battery manufacturer. The win adds to CTCI’s growing record of high tech and sustainability-related business.
Through consultancy service, CTCI seeks to help ProLogium Technology identify carbon emission hotspots during battery production and come up with mitigation solutions to lower environmental impact, meet global green product regulations, and boost production efficiency, with the ultimate goal of helping the client increase its market share as an electric vehicle (EV) battery supplier. This is also an effort by CTCI to join forces with the client in moving towards the net-zero emissions goal by 2050.
John T. Yu, CTCI Group Chairman, says, “Globally we see an inevitable trend moving towards saving energy and reducing carbon emissions. With years of expertise in ‘green engineering’ and ‘net-zero EPC,’ CTCI is proud to offer consultancy services in terms of energy-saving and carbon-neutral solutions for Taiwan’s leading solid-state battery firm. In helping our client become more competitive product-wise, the world will not only see Taiwan’s technological strengths in the field of solid-state battery, but will also see a real contribution we make in terms of global energy transition.”
The win exemplifies CTCI’s unceasing commitment to grow its high tech and green energy businesses, including businesses related to EV batteries. Last (2021) October, CTCI secured a contract from Molie Quantum Energy Corporation to help build the first lithium battery “gigafactory” in Taiwan.
Compared to traditional Li-ion battery, ProLogium’s next generation solid-state battery provides higher safety, higher energy density and more chargeability. ProLogium’s proprietary technologies can effectively reduce fire, explosion or leakage incidents that traditional Li-ion battery fails to overcome.Moreover,ProLogium’s solid state battery contains a higher proportion of recyclable materials:over 90% of the solid-state electrolyte can be recycled and reused for new batteries. CTCI will conduct a full life-cycle assessment on the product’s potential environmental impact based on European Union’s protocols on environmental footprint. An inventory of footprints will be collected on various aspects, from raw material sourcing, production, transportation, product consumption, to product disposal. Aspects such as human toxicity, land use, and water resource consumption will also be analyzed.
Vincent Yang, founder and CEO of ProLogium Technology, says, “Our business has always been driven by the desire to make the environment sustainable through smart mobility, and we aim to become the enabler to power a sustainable world. ProLogium is pleased to join forces with a world-class company to advocate global sustainable development through the introduction of green process, material reuse, green energy system, as well as environmental technologies.”
CTCI is one of the top 100 EPC companies in the world for a diverse range of sectors, including oil & gas, power, transportation, and environmental businesses. Its businesses span across Asia, the Middle East, and the US. Over the recent years, CTCI began to tap into the market of advanced technology facilities, energy storage, solar power, and offshore wind power, and has become a preferred contractor for many projects both in Taiwan and overseas.
