Customer Success Story

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) shows Talga's flagship battery anode product, Talnode®-C, is world’s greenest graphite anode

Hitachi Energy conducted a Life Cycle Assesment to quantify the cradle-to-gate1 life cycle environmental impact of Talnode®-C production according to ISO 14040:2006 and ISO 14044:2006 standards, whilst following the German Association of the Automotive Industry principles for data collection. 

Cradle-to-gate is an assessment of a partial product life cycle from resource extraction (cradle) to the factory gate (i.e., before it is transported to the consumer)

  • Quantify the life cycle environmental impact of Talnode-C production according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044
  • Identify opportunities to minimize the environmental impact of the planned production process
  • Develop a flexible LCA model that allows for configuration of the Talnode-C production process, enabling LCA modelling throughout the duration of the project
  • Provide a clear understanding of the key factors driving the environmental performance of the Talnode-C production process
  • Definition of environmental focus areas for further improvement
  • Baseline setting for metric and environmental target definition
  • External communication - ISO 14040/14044 compliant assessment of environmental impact
