Celgard Sues LG Over Battery Separator

February 10, 2014 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 92, ISSUE 6

Celgard has filed a lawsuit against South Korea-based LG Chem alleging infringement of patents on its ceramic separators for lithium-ion batteries. The Charlotte, N.C.-based firm says it worked with LG for several years under a pact that was intended to lead to a long-term supply agreement.

LG recently said it received patents in Europe and Japan on its own battery separator technology, complementing earlier patents in the U.S., South Korea, and China.
