During its first two years of operation, Finnish Minerals Group has built a robust foundation for investments into a battery value chain in Finland.
Our subsidiary has prepared a programme which provides guidance on using side streams and waste energy, for example.
With the current efforts to get Finland back on the path of sustainable growth, it is worth to further streamline the permitting processes for industrial projects.
Capitalisation would provide new opportunities for developing the Finnish battery value chain and mining operations as well as circular economy projects related to them.

Potential locations for the precursor plant are Kokkola, Vaasa, Kotka and Hamina. For the cathode active material plant the potential locations are Vaasa and Kotka.
