Rock Tech Lithium joins the European Battery Alliance

Vancouver, Canada

Rock Tech Lithium Inc is pleased to announce it is joining the European Battery Alliance.
Maroš Šefčovič, Vice President of the European Commission, launched the interest group in 2017 to make Europe a global leader in sustainable battery production and use. The EBA is comprised of around 700 private companies and government institutions. Members include Albemarle, an American lithium producer, BASF, a German producer of cathodes for rechargeable batteries, and the Fraunhofer Institute, among others.

The EBA’s goal is to ensure clean, non-polluting traffic in Europe with environmentally friendly vehicles and more sustainable technological solutions. This goal is to be achieved by creating a competitive and sustainable value chain for battery cell manufacturing in Europe. The EBA expects the corresponding market to grow to a volume of €250 billion by 2025.

“For us, the EBA represents a fantastic platform to further expand our network of companies in the battery value chain, academics and policy makers. We look forward to exchanging ideas with the other members.”
