The financing will allow Hydrovolt to recycle batteries equivalent to Norway’s entire outgoing electric vehicle fleet each year by 2030. The company expects increased demand for battery recycling due to circular economy requirements, geopolitical uncertainties around raw material access, and rising electrification of transportation.

– The funding from DNB and Eksfin enables us to develop a more circular approach in the battery value chain, where our solution can play a key role in the energy transition. The capacity and competence expansion also allows us to leverage our industrial experience to establish operations in other important markets, said Erik Magelssen, CFO of Hydrovolt.
