BASF Sues Umicore and Makita over Lithium-Ion Battery Patent Infringement

BASF has confirmed that it and University of Chicago Argonne have jointly filed lawsuits against Umicore (Brussels) and one of its customers, Makita, a Japanese toolmaker, alleging infringements of two US patents related to lithium-ion batteries containing nickel/manganese/cobalt (NMC) cathode materials. The suits were filed with the US International Trade Commission (ITC) and a federal district court in Wilmington, DE, in late February. BASF says in the filings that Umicore's actions would cost it billions of dollars of potential revenue as well as the ability to compete as a supplier for electric car platforms expected to launch in 2016 and 2017. The two plaintiffs have accused Umicore of selling battery technology based on certain lithium metal oxide cathode materials developed by the University of Chicago Argonne and covered by US patents 6,677,082 and 6,680,143. The technology was exclusively licensed to BASF in 2009. The companies cite laboratory tests allegedly showing that Makita tools contain NMC invented by Argonne, and the two say that the Japanese company obtained the cathode material from Umicore. The lawsuits also accuse Umicore of threatening to sue a customer who was considering replacing Umicore with BASF as a supplier. Umicore says that BASF's allegations are without merit and pledges to vigorously defend itself.
