LG Electronics’ Business Solution unit, which sales products to other companies, have been managing the battery separator operation.

The transfer is being reviewed as LG Chem has technology related to separators and have more synergy with LG Energy Solution on the business.

In 2019, LG Electronics had said its et cerata businesses contributed 1.1 trillion won. People familiar with the matter said this likely includes separators.
