ALBANY, OR – A plant to produce carbon material that would increase the storage capacity of electric car batteries has opened in Albany.

Seattle-based EnerG2 got a $21 million federal stimulus grant in 2010 to help remodel a warehouse of one of its partners, Oregon Freeze Dry.

Chief executive Rick Luebbe told the Albany Democrat-Herald that the plant would initially produce 20 metric tons of the pure carbon material each month and employ more than 30 people.
