Swindon and Reading-based Johnson Matthey and Sibanye-Stillwater, a leading international precious metals mining group, have formed a strategic partnership to identify and develop solutions to drive decarbonisation and the more efficient use of critical metals such as platinum group metals (pgms) and metals used in battery technology.

The company said:

“The challenge of tackling climate change has resulted in nations around the world setting net zero targets to drive decarbonisation through supply chains. At the same time, customers and consumers are demanding responsibly sourced raw materials and products".

Johnson Matthey is at the forefront of science that enables a more sustainable future – including technologies for clean hydrogen production, fuel cell products, next generation battery materials and solutions for the decarbonisation of the manufacture of chemicals.
