Tracegrow is a Finnish cleantech company operating in the circular economy. We are the only company in the world that has developed an innovative technology to extract, purify and reuse the vital trace elements Zinc and Manganese from alkaline batteries and circulate them safely back to the nature as the world’s most ecological Zinc and Manganese-based micronutrient products for farming.
We strive to minimize the exploitation of our planet’s limited resources by reusing them wisely. Our clean technology innovation provides a solution to two global challenges: the ecological reuse of the trace elements in alkaline batteries and nourishing farmland suffering from micronutrient deficiency.
Thanks to our ground-breaking technology, up to 80 percent of the trace elements in alkaline batteries can be reused. We are proud to be part of the important effort to grow healthier and more profitable farmland and thereby help increase global food production.
We help our customers and partners grow profitably and ecologically both through our effective and clean products and technological innovation. Our vision is to become the most acknowledged micronutrient company in the global circular economy.
We are a growth company operating in the global micronutrient market. The value of this market is estimated to exceed USD 8.5 billion by 2023. The annual growth of the market is 8 percent.
Our first micronutrient production plant started operations in Kärsämäki, Finland in 2018.
Tracegrow’s micronutrient product ZM-grow, manufactured from recycled alkaline batteries in a unique process, has now reached another big milestone fulfilling the requirements of the European Union Regulation (EC) No 2003/2003.
Tracegrow has selected Pöyry as its partner for delivering project and engineering services around Tracegrow’s novel clean technology. The objective of the co-operation is to develop Tracegrow’s modular technology and plant concept for global deliveries. Pöyry’s services include engineering, project management, procurement and construction management services for the modularised production plants.
