METALS FOR ELECTRIC CARS AND BATTERIES
The core of Pori region's technology metal cluster consists of three industrial parks focusing on metal processing, supported by a strong automation, chemical and mechanical engineering industry. The technology metals produced in the area such as copper, nickel, gold, silver, cobalt, and further processed products such as conductors, magnets and battery chemicals are key building blocks in the electrification of society. Renewable energy production and storage, electrified transport and digitalisation are boosting demand for technology metals and further processed products globally.
A PLACE FOR GROWTH
The modern industrial infrastructure specializing in metallurgy in the Pori region, with its raw materials and by-products, provides an excellent platform for new business. Growth and positioning are supported by a ready-made international export cluster of technology metal products, which is easy to connect to and which allows achieving significant synergy effects. For example, for the battery business, the area offers an excellent operating environment. In addition, there is room for new investments.
TOWARDS CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Increasingly stringent environmental requirements, challenges in the availability of technology metals and the concentration of raw material chains are accelerating the development of a circular economy and creating opportunities for new sustainable business. The modern industrial parks, ports and transport infrastructure in the Pori area, as well as the network of companies in the technology metal cluster, create an excellent framework for the metal recycling business.
