Ad hoc announcement pursuant to art. 53 LR

BAAR, Switzerland 02.06.2022. Blackstone Resources AG (SWX; symbol BLS, ISIN CH0460027110) is pleased to announce that our battery technologies have already won two prestigious climate and innovation awards this year. Blackstone’s proprietary 3D printing technology for high-speed multi-layer production of sustainable and high-performance lithium-ion batteries won both the German Innovation Award 2022 and the Green Product Award 2022.

“We are delighted that the juries of these highly respected awards have once again endorsed our technologies. These two sustainability awards received show that our batteries are making an important and innovative contribution to the success of the energy transition and are proving their worth in practical applications. Our development work is paying off, which of course could only be achieved through intensive collaboration between our employees in Germany and Switzerland and the scientific research companies involved. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank  all those involved for their cooperation for the incredible achievements,” says Ulrich Ernst, CEO and founder of Blackstone.

The German Innovation Award honors cross-sector products and solutions that stand out for their user-centeredness and added value compared to previous solutions. With this award, the initiators of the German Design Council honor innovations that sustainably shape the future and improve people’s lives. “Our battery technologist meets precisely these criteria,” explains Ulrich Ernst. “Our innovative and energy-efficient manufacturing process for high-performance batteries provides renewable energy safely and cleanly.”

The German Innovation Award jury described Blackstone’s battery technologies as “An important milestone on the road to widespread electrification.”

Also in May, Blackstone won the 2022 Green Product Award, beating out 1,500 competitors from 54 countries in the categories of environmental protection, innovation and design for its priority 3D screen-printing technology for the production of environmentally friendly and high-performance lithium-ion batteries. The jury for this award also had words of praise. The battery technology developed by Blackstone shows “how a mix of sustainability, design and innovation can reconcile a good lifestyle with a more sustainable future,” said Nils Bader, director of the Green Future Club and initiator of the Green Product Award.

“We are very pleased about these recent awards for our technology,” says Ulrich Ernst. “They confirm that our intensive development work is paying off and that our environmentally friendly and particularly high-performance energy carriers are also holding their own in practical use. We are proud to use our award-winning proprietary 3D printing technology for high-speed multi-layer production, soon also in the production of new solid-state batteries.”
