Site Tour:

BASF Battery Materials and Recycling, Schwarzheide.

Join us on an exclusive site tour that delves into the heart of BASF’s Battery Materials and recycling activities in Europe. BASF’s production site in Schwarzheide is a vital component of the European value chain for electromobility, playing a pivotal role in establishing a circular economy for electric vehicle batteries in Europe. Located only 40 minutes north of Dresden, the joint center for battery materials production and recycling is the first of its kind in Europe.

During the site visit, you’ll have the opportunity to gain insights on Europe’s first fully automated large-scale production for cathode active materials and celebrate with us the completion of our brand-new black mass production facility. Additionally, you’ll experience our prototype refinery for battery recycling and learn about the site’s sustainable energy strategy.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity for an afternoon of networking and an exclusive look behind the scenes.
