AMG’s subsidiary Graphit Kropfmühl and BASF Sign Innovative Agreement to Reduce Product Carbon Footprint

Amsterdam, 3 July 2024 AMG Critical Materials N.V.’s (“AMG”, EURONEXT AMSTERDAM: “AMG”) subsidiary Graphit Kropfmühl and BASF have entered into an innovative agreement to reduce their product carbon footprint. Under this agreement, BASF will supply renewable energy certificates (so called “Guarantees of Origin”) to Graphit Kropfmühl’s production site in Hauzenberg, Germany.

BASF supports Graphit Kropfmühl, a subsidiary of AMG Critical Materials N.V., with innovative renewable electricity concept:

  • BASF to supply renewable energy certificates to its supplier and partner Graphit Kropfmühl
  • Graphit Kropfmühl to reduce the product carbon footprint (PCF) of graphite produced in Hauzenberg, Germany, by at least 25 percent
  • BASF to use the reduced PCF graphite as raw material for Neopor® with a reduced product carbon footprint

A Guarantee of Origin (“GoO”) certifies that a given amount of power was produced in a particular renewable power plant, thus providing a tangible proof of the usage and source of the renewable power. By using these GoOs, the carbon footprint of graphite produced by Graphit Kropfmühl at the Hauzenberg site will be reduced by at least 25 percent. This graphite will then be used by BASF as a raw material for the production of Neopor®, which will therefore also have a lower product carbon footprint. BASF’s Neopor® is used as raw material for insulation products for buildings.

“With this innovative concept, we act hand in hand with our customers and beyond the boundaries of our own factory gates to effectively protect the climate. By deepening our collaboration with Graphit Kropfmühl, we are able to accelerate the journey towards net zero together,” said Horatio Evers, Managing Director of BASF Renewable Energy GmbH.

Yong Liu, Director of Global Direct Procurement Plastic Additives at BASF, added: “This is a win-win for BASF and Graphit Kropfmühl – a pragmatic approach with a positive impact that will strengthen our long-standing partnership with Graphit Kropfmühl and shows that we are pulling together when it comes to sustainability. Neopor® and Neopor® BMB are solutions with an oustanding insulation performance and sustainability profile. The use of graphite with a reduced product carbon footprint from our partner Graphit Kropfmühl is a consequent further step on our journey to net zero. BASF is also working on further such projects with other partners.”

“We are excited to deepen our partnership with BASF by reducing our product carbon footprint (PCF) by at least 25 percent and moving towards a more sustainable future together,” said Thomas Junker, CEO of Graphit Kropfmühl.

On its journey towards climate neutrality, BASF has set itself ambitious goals and is striving to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. One major lever to achieve these targets is the use of renewable power. BASF has therefore conducted significant investments into renewable power sources over the past years.

AMG was founded on the principle that CO2 abatement targets would create increased criticality for specialty materials. This strategic focus is encapsulated in the company’s Enabled CO2 Reduction Portfolio concept (“ECO2RP”) at the level of AMG’s customers. Its strategic focus is fully aligned with and supports the EU Taxonomy. As a subsidiary of AMG, Graphit Kropfmühl supports the parent company’s commitment to reduce its direct CO2 emissions by 20 percent from a baseline of 2019 until 2030. This corresponds to a total reduction of 125,000 tons of CO2.

Nuclear Fuel from Nuclear Waste: Formation of NewMOX SAS, France

Amsterdam, 4 April 2024 AMG Critical Materials N.V. (“AMG”, EURONEXT AMSTERDAM: “AMG”) is pleased to announce the formation of NewMOX SAS, Grenoble, France, to service the nuclear fuel market. NewMOX is a subsidiary of ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH, Hanau, Germany (“ALD”), AMG’s engineering subsidiary focused on vacuum furnace technology, which includes sintering furnace systems enabling the production of commercial nuclear fuel from plutonium and depleted uranium (termed “MOX”). ALD’s MOX technology has been applied in Germany, the United States, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom and recently ALD has been delivering such furnace systems to China. ALD – where D stands for Degussa – inherited the MOX technology from Degussa AG, ALD’s former owner (later renamed Evonik AG).

Presently, the total global storage of civil-use plutonium resulting from the reprocessing of used fuel from commercial nuclear power operations stands at 380 tons, and this figure continues to grow with ongoing nuclear power generation. Furthermore, if turned into electricity, this plutonium could power 36 one-gigawatt nuclear power plants for 20 years. Recycling this plutonium would result in “CO2 free” power and a saving of over 2 billion tons of CO2 if measured against a coal dominated grid. It should also be noted that the circularity associated with the conversion of plutonium into MOX reduces uranium mining and therefore further increases the attractiveness of nuclear power in CO2 terms.

The storage of plutonium is extremely costly due to the risks associated with plutonium. The conversion of plutonium into MOX fuel not only eliminates these risks but can be a commercially attractive alternative to storage. As an indicator, the conversion of 380 tons of plutonium into MOX translates at present fuel prices into a commercial value of $15 to $20 billion.

“We are excited that our furnace technology engineering excellence has created a new project which resulted in the formation of NewMOX SAS. We have appointed Serge Bertrand, head of ALD France, Grenoble, where ALD has centered its nuclear technology activities, to be CEO of NewMOX. Dr. Johannes Fachinger, head of nuclear ALD Hanau, will be Chief Technology Officer. Both gentlemen have extensive industry expertise, and most recently were in charge of implementing the MOX furnace technology in a Chinese factory,” said Michael Hohmann, ALD’s CEO.

“The NewMOX business model is simple,” said Dr. Heinz Schimmelbusch, AMG’s CEO. “There is a lot of plutonium stored and the operators of these storage facilities are seeking ways to reduce storage costs; there is the proven ALD MOX sinter furnace technology; and there is a large MOX market which will grow with the development of the emerging SMR (Small Modular Reactor) wave. It is the objective of NewMOX to form partnerships for the construction and operation of a commercial plutonium recycling facility producing MOX fuel starting with conceptual engineering and feasibility studies. This will take time, but this is a very valuable destination. And it qualifies under AMG’s “Double Materiality” standard which combines financial and environmental benefits.”

The declaration by the Dubai 23 conference COP 28 on Climate Change that the tripling of the world’s nuclear energy is essential for defeating Climate Change has opened a new and prospective page for the nuclear industry. This statement has been strengthened during the European Nuclear Summit in March 2024 in Brussels, where leaders of European countries and energy experts called for a “nuclear energy revival.”
