ArcelorMittal Completed Investment in XCarb Innovation Fund

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Luxembourg-based steelmaker ArcelorMittal announced that it has completed the second investment in its XCarb innovation fund.

 The $25 million equity injection makes it the lead investor in Form Energy’s $200 million financing round. In addition, a joint development agreement was signed between both the parties to explore ArcelorMittal’s potential to provide iron to Form Energy, which will be used in their battery technology. It must be noted that ArcelorMittal had made $10 million investment in June this year in Heliogen- a renewable energy technology company that focuses on solar energy.

Meantime, Mateo Jaramillo, CEO and co-founder, Form Energy said that it is pleased to welcome ArcelorMittal as a business partner and investor.
