EUROBAT— the Association of European Automotive and Industrial Battery Manufacturers— has launched a campaign to promote advanced lead batteries as a key technology in Europe’s industrial strategy. 
The implementation of the investment project for the construction of a battery plant IPower LLC became a subject of discussion not only within Belarusian society, but also in the circles of the professional community in the countries of the CIS and Europe. The emergence of new production, as the unknown, causes suspicion and fear. In Europe, however, such enterprises produce products for many years and the development of battery industry in the Republic of Belarus is generating interest from the accumulator of the global community.
