South Korean conglomerate company Doosan is investing 32 billion forints (EUR 100m) in a battery copper foil plant in Tatabanya, in western Hungary, the foreign affairs and trade minister, Péter Szijjártó, said.

The company is receiving a 4.7 billion forint government grant for the project, Szijjártó noted. The plant will make Doosan the sole supplier of battery copper foil, a key component of electric vehicle batteries, in Europe.
