In accordance with the needs of future development, the two parties will actively study the establishment of power battery recycling and nickel resource recycling plants around the world to ensure the green supply of EVE's global industrial chain.
GEM is focusing on the development of new energy business with NixCoyMnz, cobalt tetroxide and power battery recycling as the mainstay. It is a representative of advanced enterprises in the practice of green and low-carbon development. The cooperation between EVE and GEM is conducive to the joint construction of the full life cycle value chain of power batteries and the global green supply chain of nickel products. Through the cooperation between the two parties in resources, recycling, technology and markets, the directional recycling of nickel resources and the coordinated development of economic and social benefits will be realized. This cooperation will also improve EVE’s brand image and influence in the new energy industry and is in line with the EVE’s development strategy and the interests of all shareholders.
