Ad hoc announcement pursuant to art. 53 LR

BAAR, Switzerland, 9.11.2021. Blackstone Resources AG (SWX: Symbol BLS, ISIN CH0460027110) is pleased to announce that our partner ORTEN Electric Trucks will soon unveil its first commercial vehicle, which is expected to be powered by Blackstone’s new 3D-printed lithium batteries as early as the end of 2022. “We are delighted about the strong partnership with ORTEN E-Trucks. This cooperation is very interesting for both sides,” said Serhat Yilmaz, Chief Marketing Officer of Blackstone Technology GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of Blackstone Resources AG. “With this we prove that our advanced batteries are ready for the market and that there is a great demand for them. Their numerous technical advantages play a major part in practical applications.”

At the Press Day (07.12.21) of Blackstone Technology in Döbeln/Saxony, Robert E. Orten Dipl. Ing. Fahrzeugtechnik, the managing partner of ORTEN E-Trucks, will present a first, operational commercial vehicle. A joint pilot project with Blackstone will then start before the end of the first quarter of 2022, during which the commercial vehicle will be powered by our world first: 3D-printed batteries based on Blackstone Thick Layer Technology ©. “With 20% increased energy density, our charge carriers also enable 20% more range, ” says Ulrich Ernst, Founder and CEO of Blackstone Resources AG. ” At the same time, we can dramatically reduce environmental impacts in production and eliminate 50% of the industry’s waste materials.”

ORTEN plans hydrogen truck with batteries from Blackstone

The cooperation between Blackstone and ORTEN is already about to take the next step: the e-truck retrofitter from Wittlich in Rhineland-Palatinate is currently planning the realisation of a hydrogen-powered heavy-duty truck for long-distance transports. The vehicle’s electrical energy storage systems are also planned to use lithium cells produced by Blackstone using 3D printing. “Quite simply, our energy carriers deliver more power in the same installation space. ORTEN E-Trucks would like to take advantage of this compelling argument,” explains Mr Ernst.
