Building materials giant, HeidelbergCement, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ASX-listed Talga Resources, a developer of high-technology materials.

The MoU will focus on business opportunities related to Talga’s “graphite and graphene-based materials in carbon-enhanced concrete applications for the building and construction sector,” the company said in a statement.

According to Talga’s Managing Director, Mark Thompson, cements and concrete enhanced with graphene and graphite “create opportunities for conductive, stronger, and more sustainable building and construction projects”.

The agreement with HeidelbergCement follows previous agreements with over large industrial companies in the coatings and energy-storage sectors, including BASF subsidiary, Chemetall, Indian industrial conglomerate, Tata, and German-based Jena Batteries.

The company owns high-grade graphite deposits in Sweden and runs a test facility in Germany.
