Graphite is used as the negative electrode in most Lithium-ion battery chemistries. As demand for Li-ion batteries grows, so does demand for graphite. To help satisfy demand Elcora has acquired a vein graphite mine in Sri Lanka. This talk will discuss the journey graphite takes from the mine to a commercial cell.
Several topics will be discussed. For example:
• Graphite mining techniques
• Purification methods at the mine
• Spheronization
• Thermal purification
• Surface coating
• Cost
• Performance in Li-ion batteries
