Kurt Budge, Chief Executive Officer of Beowulf, commented:
“While it is disappointing that our collaboration with Epsilon has come to an end, Grafintec maintains its ambition of creating a sustainable value chain in anode materials production, leveraging renewable power, and targeting net zero CO2 across the supply chain.
“Grafintec continues to benefit from the significant support of Business Finland and broader collaboration with participants in the Finnish Battery Cluster and GigaVaasa team. Grafintec will do all it can to bring anode materials production into the GigaVaasa battery value chain.
“Grafintec has several discussions taking place regarding future developments and I look forward to providing further updates to the market on our progress.”
