Paving the way for a cleaner future

[]

Electrification of transport and the growing demand for lithium-ion batteries require new industrial operations throughout the value chain – from mines to battery cell production. Finnish Minerals Group is developing a responsible battery value chain in Finland. At the same time, we contribute to supporting the European Green Deal, according to which Europe aims to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

0 million

European battery cell production by 2031 is estimated to be sufficient for approximately 30 million electric cars per year.

0 GWh/a

According to market research, the European battery cell production by 2031 will be approximately 1,200 GWh annually.

0 kt/a

European cell production by 2031 will require annual production of approximately 1,870 kt of cathode active material (CAM).

0 kt/a

European CAM production by 2031 will require approximately 1,780 kt of precursor production (pCAM) annually.
