ENTEK building new plant in Indiana
November 15, 2023
ENTEK broke ground for the development of its new $1.5 billion separator plant in Terre Haute, Ind, on Sept. 6.
The Lebanon-based company is the only US-owned and operated manufacturer of wet-process lithium-ion battery separators. The plant in Indiana will produce lithium-ion battery components for the growing electric vehicle (EV) industry and is expected to generate more than 640 high-wage jobs by the end of 2027. The plant is set to produce up to 1.4 billion square meters of battery separators per year, enough to supply material for approximately 1.4 million vehicles, annually.
