In 2022, Masan High-Tech Materials invested in Nyobolt to develop a battery line applying high-tech tungsten materials with fast charging speed, outstanding safety, and ten times the capacity of conventional batteries to align with the global trend of using clean fuels. Recently, Nyobolt launched an electric car that can be fully charged in less than six minutes, setting a record charging speed and promising to revolutionize the electric vehicle industry.

In early 2023, Masan High-Tech Materials launched a globally patented tungsten powder brand ‘starck2charge’ used in the production of fast-charging and safe Li-ion batteries. This product is expected to address new energy challenges and create a clean energy ecosystem, particularly playing a significant role in the electric vehicle industry. Furthermore, Masan High-Tech Materials continues to introduce tungsten powder blends for industries utilizing 3D printing technology, ensuring high stability and purity, especially suitable for the medical field. These products represent Masan High-Tech Materials’ commitment to providing innovative solutions that meet the needs of advanced technology companies and global industries.

Researching and developing products at MHT Vietnam

Through research projects and laboratory and pilot plant experiments, Masan High-Tech Materials has developed and perfected a recycling process, allowing the recovery of lithium, tungsten, nickel, copper, cobalt, and manganese from waste battery products. Additionally, specific refining formulations have been developed to achieve higher recovery efficiency while utilizing less energy and water to extract the minerals.

Masan High-Tech Materials consistently seeks and establishes closed-loop systems to reuse, recycle, and renew materials, reducing dependence on raw materials and limiting waste generation. The integration of AI into the operating system facilitates faster reactions to changes in operating conditions and optimizes processes. Simultaneously, new products are being developed from the waste stream of mining operations, including magnetite concentrates for the steel industry and fluorspar additives for the cement industry.

These outstanding technological achievements have enabled Masan High-Tech Materials to no longer depend solely on primary supply in mineral exploitation. Instead, the company promotes a circular business model through urban waste mining, waste collection, production, and scrap recycling. End-of-life assets now serve as sources of raw materials for the creation of new materials and products. Currently, Masan High-Tech Materials is actively working on building Asia’s first and largest tungsten recycling plant in Thai Nguyen Province, with the goal of making Vietnam a leading recycling hub for tungsten and precious metals in the region.

Mr. Craig Bradshaw, Chief Executive Officer of Masan High-Tech Materials, stated, “Masan High-Tech Materials identifies innovation and sustainable green production as the focus of its development strategy, integral to its global strategy. The success of Masan High-Tech Materials’ innovation is attributed to the combination of a world-class R&D platform and a team of dedicated, specialized application engineers with the ability to develop products that meet the rigorous technical requirements and changing needs of customers”.

Vietnam International Innovation Exhibition 2023 is held by the Ministry of Planning and Investment.
