VANCOUVER — Rock Tech Lithium Inc. has announced plans to join the European Battery Alliance.

Maroš Šefčovič, vice president of the European Commission first launched the interest group in 2017 in an effort to promote Europe as exemplary of sustainable battery production.

The EBA is comprised of nearly 700 private companies and government institutions. Members include Albemarle, an American lithium producer, BASF, a German producer of cathodes for rechargeable batteries, and the Fraunhofer Institute among others.

The EBA says its goal is to ensure clean, non-polluting traffic in Europe with environmentally sound vehicles and sustainable technological solutions.

Additionally, the organization is working to achieve this goal by creating a competitive and sustainable value chain for battery cell manufacturing in Europe.
