August 30, 2023: Cabot Corporation has promoted Paolina Atanassova to commercial director for EMEA battery materials.
Atanassova, whose appointment was announced on LinkedIn earlier this month, is based in Germany.
She was previously senior business development manager and is a former senior technical market development manager for the battery materials group.
Cabot told Batteries International in March it was opening a new lab in Germany to help boost lithium ion battery tech for EVs — but said the firm remained committed to also supporting development of next-generation lead batteries.
The EMEA region center is based in Münster and the facility’s lab supports work on Cabot’s full range of conductive carbon additive (CCA) products as well as fumed alumina for separator and cathode coatings and aerogel for thermal management.
