The first phase will reach full production in July 2025, and the fifth-generation wet-method production line will become operational in September that year. INV New Material Technology will become the largest low-carbon separator production base in the ASEAN region after it reaches full production capacity, according to InvestPenang.

The project by INV New Material Technology “fits perfectly into the country’s new industrial master plan where EV remains an integral part of Malaysia’s push into a higher level of manufacturing,” according to MIDA deputy CEO Sivasuriyamoorthy Sundara Raja, The Vibes reported.

Malaysia will, in the next 16 years invite investors in the EV and sustainable battery industries to tap into the resources available to them, while serving as a hub for EV distribution in the region, he said.
