Talga Resources Ltd is a multi-national company focused on graphite mining and graphene supply and application development. The company mines graphite in Sweden, operates a test processing facility in Germany under Talga Advanced Materials GmbH and has a product development arm, Talga Technologies UK Ltd located in Cambridge, UK.
Talga is developing graphene products for additives to coatings, batteries, concrete and epoxy composites. Testing of Talga materials and products is underway with a range of corporations including industrial conglomerates Tata and BASF subsidiary Chemetall, UK listed Haydale, flexible battery maker Zinergy and German based Jena Batteries.
Talga Resources is a public company trading on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: TLG). In June 2016 the company raised $10 million in a placement.
The latest Talga graphene news:
Talga Resources has provided an update on the commercial progress of its graphene-enhanced silicon anode lithium-ion battery product Talnode-Si. Following encouraging early test results, further technical and commercial development of Talnode-Si has been underway at Talga’s facilities in Europe.
Results from this latest phase of development reportedly show continued success of Talga’s silicon anode approach which uses lower-cost metallurgical-grade silicon for a high-energy density anode with mass-producibility potential.
Talga Resources has announced receiving firm commitments from investors to raise gross proceeds of A$10.0 Million (around USD$7.2 Million).
Talga shared that it sees the strongly supported placement as reflecting significant investor interest as the Company progresses development of its facility in Sweden to produce ultra-low emission coated anode for greener lithium-ion batteries.
Australia-based battery graphene anode producer Talga has entered an agreement with European lithium-ion battery giant Farasis Energy Europe (Farasis). Talga will supply coated anode products for evaluation in Farasis batteries.
Talga sources its graphene and graphite in the north of Sweden, from where the company produces coated ‘active’ anode products which it will now, according to their agreement, supply to Farasis.
Talga Resources, battery anode and graphene additives developer, has announced that it has been approved for Innovate UK co-funding to support development of an e-axle designed for Bentley Motors.
The OCTOPUS project aims to deliver the ultimate single unit e-axle solution designed specifically to meet Bentley Motors performance specifications via optimized motor and power electronics technology and materials. The project is funded under the Office for Low Emission Vehicles’ and Innovate UK’s “IDP15: The Road to Zero Emission Vehicles” competition.
Talga Resources has announced the commencement of a new large-scale commercial trial of its Talcoat graphene additive for maritime coatings. At the core of the Talcoat product is Talga’s new patent pending graphene functionalization technology in the form of an on-site dispersible powder that adds graphene to paints and coatings.
Following the former trial, ans supported by the same ship owner, Talga has provided its graphene additive to enhance a primer coating successfully applied over a sizeable area of a second large container ship.
