Introducing BAM-2

Group14 is building the world’s largest factory for advanced silicon battery material in Moses Lake, WA. BAM-2 is expected to produce thousands of tons of SCC55™ annually and create hundreds of new jobs locally, laying the foundation for a more resilient American battery supply chain.

About BAM-2

The world’s largest silicon battery materials factory

Domestic commercial production for global OEMs
Group14 is expecting to begin production at BAM-2 in 2024, starting with two modules, each capable of delivering 2,000 annual tons of SCC55™. Group14 plans to build additional modules in the future to supply hundreds of thousands of EVs, millions of consumer electronics, electrified aviation, and other end-market applications with SCC55™.

BAM-2 Updates

Secretary Granholm visits

In February 2024, shortly after heavy equipment was installed, Group14 hosted Washington State Governor Jay Inslee, U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, and U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell to tour BAM-2, sharing our plans to transform American battery materials manufacturing by bringing high-paying clean energy jobs to the state.

Momentum accelerates

Construction of BAM-2 in Moses Lake, WA continued at a breakneck pace. Exterior walls were completed on the first module with the second module soon to follow. The Operations Building core and shell – where Group14 will monitor the advanced silicon battery materials factory when it comes online – were completed.
BAM-2 Updates

Major equipment installed

By early 2024, we installed heavy equipment in the first module, which now has exterior panels on all five walls. On the second module, we completed concrete walls on its first, second, and third floors, with equipment installation and steel coating also well underway.

Roof installed on the first module

By late 2023, we completed the steel structure and topped out on the fifth floor of BAM-2’s first module, making the factory visible from the I-90 corridor. Amid these milestones, we completed the contract for our $100M US DOE award.

Construction begins

After breaking ground in April 2023, we quickly began pouring concrete and started construction on BAM-2 in Moses Lake—which will soon to be the world’s largest silicon battery materials factory. By September, steel was in the ground and our first module was on the rise.

We began construction in 2023 and expect to have our first two BAM modules completed in 2024, at which point BAM-2 will begin manufacturing SCC55™. We will continue to grow and anticipate building more factory modules and facilities in the coming years.

BAM-2’s first two modules will each enable 2,000 tons per year of SCC55™, with additional modules in coming years expected to produce enough material to power hundreds of thousands of EVs, consumer electronics, electrified aviation, and more.
