The large turnout at PTL's consultation meeting underlined the strong community interest in the upcoming facility at Torsboda. Numerous detailed inquiries were made, touching on both general and environmental aspects of the project. PTL and their partners provided insights into the establishment's specifics, and they laid out the future steps for the environmental impact assessment.


Yu Han, PTL's European Chief and Project Manager, commented on the gathering, "The event was a success. Engaging with the local community, understanding their specific concerns, and addressing initial questions is crucial for us. We truly value their input and feedback."


Positioning Timrå as a Leader in Battery Material Production

This consultation is an early but essential step in PTL's development plan. It offers an opportunity for immediate feedback and questions, even if some answers are still to come.

PTL's proposed facility aims to produce around 100,000 tons of artificial graphite annually. This graphite is vital for battery manufacturing, marking a significant step for Sweden and Europe's move toward a sustainable, electrified future. Since no other facility of its kind currently exists in Europe, Timrå stands to become a leader in graphite production.

Christian Söderberg, CEO of Torsboda Industrial Park, who was also present at the consultation, shared his thoughts, "I see PTL's initiative as a historic move. We're charting a course towards a more environmentally friendly future, setting a positive precedent for the next generations."


Next Steps for PTL

In their Environmental Impact Assessment, PTL will examine the potential effects of the facility on areas like noise, emissions, traffic, and resource usage. This assessment will also identify any potential risks related to the facility.
