The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes, through a cooperative agreement with Honeywell International Inc. (Honeywell), to partially fund the construction of a manufacturing plant to produce a critical battery material, lithium hexaflurophosphate (LiPF6). The plant would be located on a 10-acre parcel, within a 1,010-acre tract of land owned by Honeywell, in an unincorporated area of Massac County, near the City of Metropolis, Illinois. THis facility would support the anticipated growth int he Li-ion battery industry and, more specifically, the electric drive vehicle (EDV) industry. If approved, DOE would provide approximately 50 percent of the funding for the project.
