Freyr Submits Environmental Impact Assessment Program for Planned Battery Cell Plant in Vaasa

Published: 28.1.2022

FREYR Battery (“FREYR”), a developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production capacity, has developed a program for the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and submitted its proposal to the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment in Finland (ELY Centre).

This marks an important step in the approval process for the construction project of FREYR’s battery cell plant in Vaasa, Finland.

“FREYR Battery’s preparations for building a cell factory are Finland’s first large-scale cell project, and we are very pleased that the process has progressed to this stage. We have collaborated with many operators in the GigaVaasa region at different stages of the environmental impact assessment processes, and we have learned a lot at the same time. FREYR Battery’s EIA process, having been done this thoroughly, provides a good basis for future permit procedures, says CEO Ulla Mäki-Lohiluoma on behalf of the GigaVaasa team.
