Johnson Matthey is a global leader in science that enables a cleaner and healthier world. We apply our cutting edge science to create solutions with our customers that make a real difference to the world around us.
We’ve been leaders in our field for more than 200 years, applying unrivalled scientific expertise to enable the transition to net zero, cleaner air, improved health and the more efficient use of our planet's natural resources.
Through continued investment in research and development, we’re tackling the world’s big challenges. This includes our pioneering work in battery material technologies, where we are commercialising our family of advanced nickel rich advanced cathode materials, eLNO®, to be ready to power the next generation of plug in hybrid and battery electric vehicles in 2024 with our first commercial plant coming online in 2022. With production of eLNO powered 100% by renewable electricity, it has the strong environmental credentials that contribute to a sustainable battery value chain.
In our partnership JM and Envision Virgin Racing will combine next generation cathode materials with leading battery technology to create the first ever electric two seater Formula E style race car, powered by eLNO. The concept vehicle will showcase eLNO in action and will act as a test bed, providing valuable experience of a challenging real life automotive application that will inform the continuous development of eLNO as high performance, customisable material for passenger cars.
