BASF’s new cathode materials plant in Ohio is four stories tall.

BASF has opened a plant in Elyria, Ohio, that will supply nickel cobalt manganese cathode materials to companies making lithium-ion batteries for hybrid and all-electric vehicles.

The 70,000-sq-ft facility is expected to employ 25 workers.
