Ontario Refinery

Electra’s Flagship Asset

The first of its kind – Existing refinery, infrastructure and permits

Electra’s hydrometallurgical facility is the only facility of its kind in North America. It will supply the electric vehicle market with cobalt sulfate, and has an operating history of previously producing cobalt carbonate and nickel carbonate.

Located in Ontario, Canada, near the largest auto manufacturing centres in North America, Electra’s products are produced locally. Our site is approximately 350 miles (600 kilometres) from the U.S. border and is accessible by road or rail. In addition to the renewable and affordable hydroelectricity that powers our site, Electra will produce the world’s lowest carbon solution for zero-emission vehicles.

At full capacity, Electra’s Ontario Refinery could produce enough cobalt sulfate to supply more than 1 million electric vehicles per year.
