Kymenlaakso welcomes battery material plants
The preparations for establishing battery material plants in Hamina and Kotka are underway.
As the preparations progress, Finnish Minerals Group wanted to hear Kymenlaakso residents’ thoughts on the plants. The survey was implemented in March 2022, and as many as 94% of the respondents found that the placement of the battery material plants in Kotka and Hamina would promote economic growth and employment in the region.
The pCAM plant in Hamina would be producing precursor material that is a preliminary stage of cathode active material, as the plant in Kotka would further process precursor material into cathode active material used by cell plants to manufacture the cathode.
