Tinuku SK Innovation launches NCM 811 battery

SK Innovation is the first in the world to succeed in the commercial production of advanced NCM 622 batteries and in May they announced to focus on developing more sophisticated NCM 811 batteries to meet growing demand in longer-haul and cheaper electric car industries.

The company raised the proportion of lithium-ion nickel for the NCM 811 to extend the range of electric vehicles over 100 kilometers compared to current batteries. In addition, higher use of nickel will help reduce costs where prices for other cathode materials such as cobalt are increasing,

Technology uses ceramic tiles to improve better stability where the main problem of lithium-ion batteries that have higher nickel proportions is overheating. However, SK Innovation's cutting-edge technology provides a solution to this problem.

"SK Innovation proves a top-class excellence in battery manufacturing, successfully producing and commercializing NCM 622 and NCM 811 batteries for the first time in the world," said Lee Jon-ha of SK battery research center.

"The NCC 811 battery will help expand the reach of electric cars by up to 500 kilometers and we will also develop new batteries for coverage of more than 700 kilometers by 2020," the company said.

The company, founded in 1953, pledged to invest more in the battery business as a company strategy in the electric car market that accounts for about 40 percent of the cost of producing environmentally friendly cars. The global battery market share is projected to grow more than 10-fold in the coming decade.

Malaysia reviews potential of monopoly by Grab and Uber mergers

Tinuku - Malaysia's transport ministry said Wednesday it is studying the potential of monopoly in the ride-hailing market triggered by Grab and Uber mergers under several existing regulations. Uber Technologies Inc. sold their business in Southeast Asia to Grab in March in exchange for shares in a Singapore-based company.

The ministry said the land transport agency received many complaints about Grab raising tariffs since the merger. Grab has become the dominant player in the region. Last week, Singapore's anti-trust agency proposed a fine on Grab and Uber where mergers have reduced competition and suggested improvements such as the sale of a car rental business.

"What's imposed on taxi drivers will also be imposed on e-hailing drivers to get the driver's card. We know this is not a move that will please all parties, but we take a more balanced approach and create competition," said Transport Minister Anthony Loke

The monopoly review will be conducted by Mala…
