We are focused on the production of high purity chemicals and battery materials required in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. Our business model is based on upstream, midstream and downstream integration of proprietary supply chains from in-situ critical raw materials to downstream production of high purity chemicals and cathode active materials (CAM).

The Battery Chemicals Complex will produce high purity chemicals containing lithium, nickel, cobalt, manganese and other metals.  

We will produce CAM for electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers in Europe, North America and KSA seeking long term, transparent and geopolitically aligned supply chains. EVM has a highly knowledgeable executive and management team with over 180 years of combined experience in midstream and downstream processing of minerals, metals and chemicals for global markets and upstream integration through exploration and mining.
