Redwood Materials raises over $1 billion in Series D investment round

Redwood is pleased to announce the completion of our most recent equity funding round, in which we raised more than $1 billion in Series D shares. The round which was co-led by Goldman Sachs Asset Management, Capricorn's Technology Impact Fund, and funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc.  We will use our Series D funding to continue building our capacity, expanding the domestic battery supply chain and allowing our customers to purchase battery materials made in the US for the first time.  

We are relentlessly focused on expanding our collection of end-of-life batteries, increasing our refining capability to recover higher quantities, and harnessing their value to make the most sustainable products. This approach stands as the cornerstone of our strategy as we scale our battery material production capacity. With this additional capital, we'll continue to assemble an industry-leading technical team, ensuring top-notch execution in sustainable battery materials production.  

 To date, Redwood has now raised nearly $2 billion of equity capital along with an additional $2B loan commitment from the Department of Energy.   

We thank our existing strategic and financial investors, many of whom participated in this round, for their continued confidence and dedication to our mission. Additionally, we welcome new investors, including OMERS, Caterpillar Venture Capital, Microsoft’s Climate Innovation Fund, Deepwater Asset Management, among others, who will help bring us closer to creating a closed-loop battery materials supply chain to power our sustainable future.
