6K, a leader in the production of sustainable advanced materials for energy storage and additive manufacturing powders, announced the appointment of Sam Trinch as president of 6K Energy, the company’s energy storage division.

6K also announced the hiring of Chad McDonald as senior vice president of business development and strategy as well as Thanh Nguyen as senior vice president of deployment for the 6K Energy group.

Through its sustainable UniMelt® microwave production platform, 6K Energy has proven it can significantly drive down battery material costs by 50-70% while producing a range of battery materials including NMC 811 single crystal, silicon anode, LFP, and LLZO to name a few.

All three executives will help guide the partnership, commercial and go-to-market strategies helping to further establish 6K Energy as the leading organization for sustainable, low cost, domestic supply of performance battery materials.
 
“6K Energy has developed strategic relationships with the battery industry’s most iconic brands from OEMs, cell manufacturers, battery manufacturers and battery material suppliers who are looking to 6K for high-performance battery materials at significantly lower costs,” said 6K CEO Dr. Aaron Bent. 

New 6K Energy President Sam Trinch commented, “Dr. Richard Holman, our senior vice president of battery products, was able to take a concept from the additive metals market and develop a truly transformational production platform for battery materials in 36 months.

The process significantly drives down costs for our customers while greatly reducing water and energy use and waste creation. For example, a typical automotive program of 100k EVs leveraging 6K Energy’s solution can save over $100M of cost and can eliminate CO2 emissions equivalent to what 15M trees will do in a three-year period.

This allows everyone in the ecosystem to be more competitive in the market, while maintaining margins they and their investors expect.”
 
Trinch added, “Joining a team that already had the vision to invest over $30M in a state-of-the-art Battery Center of Excellence, housing a 400MWhr pilot production facility, speaks volumes to the commitment and opportunity for 6K Energy. When you couple the cost savings and sustainability benefits of the UniMelt process over legacy production technologies, our solution will become the go-to battery material production platform. The advantages 6K Energy offers in the market are truly unique and I’m thrilled to lead such an innovative team.”
