Talga kickstarts global role for Cambridge’s cleantech sector
Talga Technologies, the advanced materials technology company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange company, is scaling up its R&D operations at the Bradfield Centre on Cambridge Science Park.
The move comes as tests show that Talga’s Li-ion battery anode product, Talnode-C, outperforms existing lithium battery technology in cold weather situations, where lithium products have traditionally struggled.
“We make graphene and graphite materials,” says Talga Resources R&D manager, Sai Shivareddy. “Graphene is made by an electrochemical exfoliation process in an aqueous electrolyte – water plus salt – by using our natural graphite rocks in electrodes.”
