The electric vehicle (EV) battery market is surging as traditional automakers announce plans to go all-electric and new EV players continue to emerge. 

Building new battery plants, though, is only half the battle. Battery manufacturing requires significant heating and cooling resources. Reliable utilities, specifically cooling and boiler systems, are essential for any EV battery producer to hit their productivity and profitability targets. 

Design is the best stage in which to build in the features that support reliable, sustainable and easy-to-start-up utility systems. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure: Building with water efficiency in mind helps EV battery producers be good neighbors in the communities where they operate, and good stewards of their local watersheds. Doing this up front also helps prevent lengthy construction delays and costly retrofitting. 

The Automotive experts at Nalco Water compiled the top 10 mistakes we see at new plant start-ups worldwide, including issues unique to EV battery plants. Our team offers design and planning recommendations as preventive measures, plus mitigation tips when necessary.
