OSLO, NORWAY: The Board of Vow Green Metals confirmed the appointment of Cecilie Jonassen and Lars Mårdalen as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), respectively of the new company.
The appointments are important steps towards the demerger and separate listing of Vow Green Metals later this year.
Established by and currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Vow ASA, Vow Green Metals is a pioneer in recycling of biomass and production of biocoal, a material which plays a crucial role in the ongoing decarbonising of metallurgical industry.
The company’s first production plant is being planned at Follum in Eastern Norway for completion in 2022. A letter of intent is already in place with the advanced materials company Elkem for delivery of biocoal from the Follum plant.
Most players in the metallurgical industry have committed to comprehensive decarbonising programmes in response to new regulation and expectations from investors and customers. Vow Green Metals has a firm ambition to help this industry reach their goals.
“Vow Green Metals’ new CEO Cecilie Jonassen has broad experience from valorizing biomass on an industrial scale, and she shares our ambition on developing a company which will help entire industries decarbonise. There is no doubt she will be a valuable contribution to the company,” said Narve Reiten, Chair of both Vow ASA and Vow Green Metals.
In her current role, Cecilie Jonassen is Director of Operations Support in the Norwegian paper manufacturing company Norske Skog, where she has held various positions in Germany and Norway since 2005. A Norwegian originally from Fredrikstad, she has a Master of Science degree in chemical engineering from 2005 from NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
