In 2022, Planet Positive demand exceeded expectations. We have over 100 Planet Positive products designed to support our customers’ publicly stated climate change and other sustainability targets. Our Planet Positive services can improve our customers’ processes through modernizations and upgrades, as well as optimize existing production processes. Our customers’ success is our success. Planet Positive sales totaled EUR 1.3 billion in 2022, growing a remarkable 51% from 2021.
In 2022, we had multiple orders with a significant proportion of Planet Positive technology. These included battery minerals processing plants supporting global energy transition and electrification, for instance a EUR 120 million order for a lithium project in Finland, a EUR 100 million order for a Copper-Gold-Molybdenum concentrator complex in Uzbekistan, and a EUR 55 million order for pyro processing and comminution lines for a lithium hydroxide processing plant in Australia. Planet Positive comminution circuits were also included in orders such as the delivery of an energy-efficient comminution technology package for a garnet greenfield project in Norway.
