We have performed an initial analysis of options for completion of the Rochester Hub, and we are taking steps to conserve cash. Additionally, we remain actively engaged and continue to work closely with the DOE to satisfy conditions precedent for financial close for the $375 million loan commitment as we complete a comprehensive review of the go-forward strategy for the Rochester Hub.”
Kochhar added, “Global EV production volumes and battery material demand continues to be underpinned by strong fundamentals. With favorable supply and demand dynamics driving the need for domestic sources of battery material, we continue to see significant benefits for Li-Cycle’s Spoke & Hub network, and in particular, the market need for the Rochester Hub.”
