In its announcement, Talga advised that studies confirm the feasibility of producing Talga battery anode products in the United Kingdom. In particular, the company looked into the technical and commercial prospects from its Anode Refinery in the country.
Talga stated that it’s reviewing opportunities for strategic growth in response to increased consumer demand and favourable global government policies. Geographical and product expansions are possible pathways as it aims to benefit from the emerging lithium battery sector.
The studies indicated the company’s patented battery anode products Talnode-C and Talnode-Si could service United Kingdom’s electric vehicle market needs.
