It was also said that the partnership gives the two companies a chance to figure out how to meet the requirements for U.S. tax credits set by the Inflation Reduction Act of August.

In order to get tax credits, at least 40% of the value of key minerals for batteries will have to come from the U.S. or a free-trade partner of the U.S. This number will go up to 80% in 2027.
