In July 2019, LG Chem just invested 500 billion won (nearly 3 billion yuan) to build a factory in South Korea, specializing in the production of lithium ion battery cathode materials. The new plant will break ground in 2020 and begin production of cathode materials by the end of 2022.

Currently, LG Chem has two cathode material production plants in South Korea and one plant in Nanjing, China. In October 2019, LG Chem invested USD 417 million (about 2.93 billion yuan) in the Nanjing plant to meet the relevant needs of electric vehicle manufacturers. LG Chem plans to invest another 2 trillion won (approximately 12 billion yuan) in 2023 to establish a second production base in Nanjing.
