US and Europe strengthen domestic battery supply chains

US and Europe strengthen domestic battery supply chains
Both the US and Europe are trying to take greater ownership of the supply chains of the batteries going into their EVs

From processing battery metals in Germany to factories that will construct the batteries in South Carolina and graphite development in Alabama, projects are moving forward apace.
