Vow ASA: Vow signs LOI with possibility for technology supply to a 50 000 tonnes per year biocarbon plant

February 2nd, 2022

Vow ASA ("Vow") is joining forces with a global non-ferrous metal producer and Norway's Vow Green Metals AS in a move which could eventually lead to the construction of large biocarbon production facilities, where technology will be supplied by Vow ASA, and owned and operated by Vow Green Metals.

As a first step outlined in a letter of intent (LoI), the non-ferrous metals producer, Vow Green Metals, and Vow have agreed to undertake a joint feasibility study to evaluate the potential of developing an advanced and commercially competitive biocarbon product for the undisclosed client.

"We are thrilled with this opportunity to support a world leading non-ferrous metals producer with our technology in its efforts to decarbonise its business, and to work with Vow Green Metals to realise what could become this company's second biocarbon plant and several more. The undisclosed client has projected a demand to replace 50.000 tonnes of fossil carbon with biocarbon by 2025, a volume representing 5 times the capacity of Vow Green Metal's first plant at Follum, currently under construction. This LOI demonstrates the attractiveness of the combined value proposition that Vow Green Meals and Vow ASA brings to the metallurgical industry", said Henrik Badin, CEO of Vow ASA.

As part of the study, the parties will map feedstock supply chains and establish a business model for off-take of CO2 neutral gas which is also a product of the biocarbon production process. The biocarbon product will be made from sustainable feedstock such as forestry wood mass, biomass waste streams and other wood materials. Each party will carry their own cost in this initial stage.

Provided that the biocarbon product meets specifications, the LoI consists of a plan to build a plant with capacity to produce 50.000 tons per year of biocarbon, to be operational by 2025. There is further a possibility to substantially increase production capacity for this undisclosed client in following years.

Vow is currently in the process of producing and assembling equipment for Vow Green Metals' first biocarbon plant at Follum in Eastern Norway based on Vow's advanced pyrolysis technology. This plant will have an initial capacity to produce 10.000 tonnes of biocarbon per year. The new plants for production of biocarbon to the undisclosed client would be based on similar technology.
