Umicore opened a plant in the city of Nysa, Poland, for the production of active cathode material for electric vehicles.

Construction of the gigafactory began in 2019, and production for automotive companies and battery cell customers in Europe began in July of this year.

“Nysa’s annual production capacity should reach 20 GWh by the end of 2023 and 40 GWh in 2024, with the potential to increase to more than 200 GWh, or 3 million electric vehicles, in the second half of the decade,” they say in the company. .

The station receives all its electricity from an onshore wind farm, the company reports.

“This growth trajectory is part of Umicore’s ambition to reach a global capacity of more than 400 GWh by 2030 and an overall strategy to create fully integrated regional battery material value chains on three continents,” the company said. “To this end, Umicore plans to build a precursor and cathode active materials plant in Canada and expand existing facilities in Asia.”
