U.S. metals technology solutions company Boston Metal has landed $20 million in a Series A funding round.

The round was led by Breakthrough Energy Ventures with participation from Prelude Ventures and The Engine. 

Boston Metal will use the funds to advance the first industrial-scale deployments of its molten oxide electrolysis (MOE) technology for the production of ferroalloys. 

In addition, the company will use the proceeds to back continued scale-up of MOE for the production of emissions-free steel.
