He started from the lithium storage mechanism of the graphite anode electrode, mentioned the difference between the natural graphite anode and artificial graphite anode, and concluded from the four perspectives of battery performance, cost, quality, and technical iteration that the demand for anode materials for future power batteries will be around the following points: First of all, the requirements for fast charging are getting higher and higher, and graphite doping with silicon to increase energy density will become a significant trend; then the cost requirements will become higher and higher, and the construction of integrated factories, new processes/technologies, and yield control will become a significant trend. The key to market competition is that the quality requirements will become increasingly strict, and anode companies need to deeply control the quality of incoming materials from the raw material side. Finally, with the faster and faster iteration of products in the entire industry chain, the R&D and design ability of the anode material requirements will also be more stringent.

[Shanghai Shanshan Technology Co., Ltd.] Director of the Silicon Project of the Research Institute / Mr. Ma Fei shared with the guests the "status of the silicon-based anode industry and the trend of technology iteration." He first introduced some traditional problems and the technical status of silicon-based anodes and believed that silicon-based compounds were the best solution for both volume and mass-energy density. Then he shared the application of Shanshan in silicon-based products, pointing out that at present, Shanshan Shan has built a matrix of core technologies such as homogenized CVD, SEI directional coating, low expansion control, homogenized doping and fast charging of silicon carbon materials, and has completed the construction of a thousand-ton silicon carbon material production line. The product has been tested for more than one year of 20+ key customers outside the country. Finally, Director Ma proposed that the market opportunities for future silicon-based projects may lie in increasing demand for industrial silicon and its downstream derivatives, the surge in demand for advanced CVD, PVD, pulverization, and process equipment; increasing demand for particular gas derivatives; non-graphitization demand for goods increases.
