The Finnish Terrafame will supply Stellantis with nickel sulphate for the production of electric vehicles’ batteries. This is a recent agreement signed by the two new partners and framed in the aggressive electrification strategy by Stellantis, which will allow satisfying a significant part of the requirements of sustainable nickel produced in the region.
Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis stated: «This agreement is part of the provisioning strategy of essential raw materials to satisfy our requirements in the production of battery packs for electric vehicles. We go on implementing a new global value chain together with leader partners, to support our global strategy and to prosecute our commitment to becoming the reference sector reality in the contrast to the climatic change, with the target of zeroing net emissions by 2038, in advance versus competitors».
The words by Terrafame, pronounced by the CEO Joni Lukkaroinen are as enthusiastic: «The collaboration with sector leaders such as Stellantis strengthens the ranking of Terrafame as outstanding partner for the supply of chemical components for batteries for the European automotive industry».
Anyway, what about Terrafame? In Finland, it manages one of the largest chemical plants for batteries on a global scale. With an integrated manufacturing process that starts from its mine and ends with the chemical components for batteries in a single industrial site, the production of Terrafame is fully traceable. Moreover, due to the exclusive production technology, the carbon emissions of the nickel sulphate produced by Terrafame are among the lowest in the sector.
