A life cycle assessment of Talga Group’s (TLG) flagship battery anode product Talnode-C has shown it to be the world’s greenest graphite anode.

Consulting firm Hitachi ABB Power Grids completed the ‘cradle-to-gate’ assessment which quantifies the environmental impact of the product life from resource extraction to the factory gate.

The assessment found Talnode-C production emits 96 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions than the current synthetic graphite anode produced in China.

Talga Managing Director Mark Thompson said the highlights the ability of the Vittangi Anode Project to contribute to European decarbonisation.
