NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. PERSONS OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES.
Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – January 31, 2024 – VanadiumCorp Resource Inc. (TSXV:VRB) (FSE:NWNA) (OTC:VRBFF) (« VanadiumCorp » or the « Company ») is a Canadian critical minerals company focused on the renewable energy storage space facilitating the global energy transition. Our electrolytes will be used in the supply chain for the Vanadium Flow Battery (“VFB”) systems.
VanadiumCorp has recently established an office in Frankfurt am Main to facilitate the sales of vanadium electrolyte to the European energy storage market and to evaluate potential electrolyte production locations in Germany and other parts of the European Union. As part of this effort, the Company is conducting a scoping study to evaluate constructing an electrolyte plant in Germany.
The proposed operation aims to produce 4 million litres of vanadium electrolyte annually. This would contribute to the European energy market by providing 76 MWh of energy storage using VFB technology every year. To ensure that the proposed project is sustainable and cost-effective, the company is conducting a Life Cycle Cost analysis with the objective of locating an industrial site that can offer favourable synergies to the Company’s operations. Additionally, the Company is actively seeking a suitable partner(s) in the EU to support its proposed activities in the region.
The new Vanadiumcorp office is in the financial district at Große Gallusstraße 16-18 Frankfurt, Germany.
About Long Duration Energy Storage and Vanadium Electrolyte
Long Duration Energy Storage (LDES) is critical for decarbonizing the electrical grid and energy shifting. The VFB is a unique technology that can operate indefinitely with inexpensive maintenance. Electrolytes are the most significant cost component of the VFB energy storage system.
VanadiumCorp Resource Inc. seeks to produce a reliable stream of high-quality vanadium electrolytes for the expanding international market for long-duration Vanadium Flow Batteries (VFB). The Company’s initial manufacturing facility is based in Val-des-Sources, Québec. Stable, long-term access to vanadium feedstock for the production of electrolytes is assured, success-contingent on developing our wholly owned vanadium-titanium-iron mineral deposits, including our flagship Lac Doré deposit near Chibougamau, Québec.
