Groundbreaking for Cinis Fertilizer production facility in Örnsköldsvik
Today, Cinis Fertilizers CEO Jakob Liedberg, together with the chairman of Örnsköldsvik’s municipal board, Anna-Britta Åkerlind, and We Construction CEO Jonas Lindén, took a symbolic first sod in Köpmanholmen. The spade was taken with a common spade with three handles.
- What we are going to build here in Köpmanholmen is something unique. Here, Cinis Fertilizer will manufacture the world’s most sustainable mineral fertilizer from residual products from electric car battery manufacturing and the pulp industry. We will use traditional and proven process technology powered by fossil-free electricity. Our end product, potassium sulfate, will be an important contribution to the green transformation of agriculture, where our end customers are located, says Jakob Liedberg, founder and CEO of Cinis Fertilizer.
- It is gratifying that today we see Köpmanholmen developing as a viable and sustainable place, with several legs to stand on and where new steps are being taken for companies to expand and establish themselves in the place. Now we are taking a sod for the green transition by manufacturing environmentally friendly fertilizer for agriculture from residual products from other industries, says municipal executive board chairwoman Anna-Britta Åkerlind (C).
The production facility in Köpmanholmen is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
