LG Chem, the South Korean petrochemicals giant, disclosed its commitment on Friday to inject a substantial $820 million into building a battery cathode material factory within the state of Tennessee, USA.

This announcement follows last year’s revelation by the company outlining its ambitious strategy to channel over $3 billion in investments by 2027 specifically aimed at constructing a battery cathode facility in Tennessee. This strategic move aligns with LG Chem’s proactive measures to scale up operations in response to the burgeoning demand for components essential in electric vehicles (EVs).
