Below you will find an illustration showing where Elkem enters the battery value chain:

Elkem is currently constructing a pilot plant for battery graphite in Kristiansand, Norway. The pilot, which represents an investment of NOK 65 million, aims to conclude process route and qualify products, and is expected to open in the beginning of 2021.

Based on conclusions from the pilot, Elkem will evaluate the basis for competitive industrial production with its Northern Recharge project.

Northern Recharge impact assessment:

Elkem plans to establish a new industrial plant for the production of anode graphite at Herøya Industrial Park, Porsgrunn, Norway. In this connection, an impact assessment was published on the Norwegian Environment Agency’s portal on 6 October 2020. The document is also availiable for download
