Schwandorf, 21 December 2021 - Nabaltec AG is expanding its production capacities for boehmite at the Schwandorf site by investing an amount in the mid double-digit million range.
Production output will be more than doubled from 10,000 to 25,000 tons per year. Commissioning is slated for the second half of 2023.
"With the Supervisory Board's approval of this forward-looking project, we are in a position to consistently meet the rapidly increasing growth in the lithium ion battery market, financially a key market for us," said Johannes Heckmann, CEO of Nabaltec AG.
