Vow ASA: Additional 2,500-tonnes production facility at Follum to be transferred to Vow Green Metals

February 17th, 2023

Vow ASA ("Vow" or "the Company") is in discussions with Vow Green Metals about the potential sale of a 2,500 tonnes biocarbon production facility at Follum, Norway, featuring a Biogreen line. Construction is underway for completion in the third quarter 2023.

Market trends, increased demand and requests from industry encouraged Vow to start construction of the production facility. Other Biogreen testing and pilot plants are already operating in France and in the UK, and a pilot plant for microwave assisted pyrolysis has been in operation at Lindum in Norway since 2020. These plants have been instrumental in Vow's development and marketing of pyrolysis-based recycling of materials.

Vow Green Metals is currently constructing a 10,000-tonnes full scale biocarbon production plant at Follum. This plant is scheduled for completion by mid-2024. For Vow Green Metals and its current and prospective partners and customers in the metallurgical industry, earlier access to large quantities of biocarbon is very important for testing and qualification of advanced biocarbon as a reduction agent.

On this background, Vow and Vow Green Metals have started discussions regarding a possible transfer of the NOK 50-60 million production facility from Vow to Vow Green Metals. A final agreement has yet to be concluded.

Independently of the above, Vow and Vow Green Metals are also discussing the sale of a large-scale pyrolysis reactor currently being built by Vow subsidiary C.H. Evensen. This unit is included in Vow Green Metals' plans for doubling the production capacity at Follum to 20,000 tons of biocarbon per year.

Vow ASA owns 30.4% of the shares and it is the largest shareholder in Vow Green Metals AS, and transactions that involve the companies are conducted in accordance with applicable related party transaction practice.
