Northvolt is building the first large-scale battery manufacturing factory in Europe. Based in Sweden, the main production site will include active material preparation, cell assembly, recycling and auxiliaries.
The need for batteries in the power, transport and industrial sectors is becoming increasingly urgent.
Northvolt is building a next generation lithium-ion battery factory under a new concept that focuses on scale, vertical integration and highly controlled manufacturing. The execution is fundamentally different to current battery production facilities, with the aim of creating a circular supply system and using clean energy in production. The factory has a capacity of 125 MWh/year (demo line and research facility) to 32 GWh/year (main production site), with a high level of automation.
• Ambitious and industrialised recycling process.
• Lower cost level.
• Supporting the transition to electrification.
• Sustainable: production close to zero carbon emission.
