Our two production plants in Poland contribute to clean mobility in the European markets. Umicore’s plant in Nowa Ruda produces automotive catalysts that reduce harmful emissions of vehicles. Umicore’s plant in Nysa will produce cathode materials that determine the performance of rechargeable batteries in electric vehicles. Both plants use the newest generation technology and incorporate measures to minimize energy use and CO2 emissions.
