LG Chem has asked ITC to ban SK Innovation's lithium-ion battery and infrastructure technology that infringes its trade secrets from entering the US market.
Currently, SK Innovation only produces electric vehicle batteries in Korea, but plans to start mass production in factories in Hungary and the United States in 2020 and 2022, respectively.
Shin Hak Cheo, vice chairman and CEO of LG Chem, said: "This lawsuit is an inevitable measure to protect our core technology and intellectual property."
SK Innovation regrets the lawsuit, the company said in a statement: "We are bound to have the upper hand, through legal procedures to clarify LG Chem's allegations."
