It confirms the market interest in aluminium produced using our breakthrough Elysis carbon-free smelting technology. We are continuing to progress further development of our technology, with our focus on bringing it to market to revolutionize the industry.”

However, neither revealed Apple which of his products will use the CO2-free aluminium, nor did Elysis say how much aluminium will be delivered to Apple.
