Global Graphite Hub
International Graphite is developing advanced graphite processing facilities that will be the catalyst for a new graphite industrial hub in Collie, the industrial centre of Western Australia’s South West region.
The location is central to WA’s electricity transmission and well-connected to services, infrastructure and strategic transport linkages. It is only two hours by road from WA’s main port of Fremantle and 60 km from the export port of Bunbury.
Although markets for IG’s products will initially be in the US, Europe and Australia, the project dovetails with Western Australian Government initiatives to develop a future renewable energy storage industry in the State.
The WA Government is supportive of IG’s operation and the employment opportunities it will create. Local and State governments are actively working to encourage new and emerging industries to Collie with funding and other initiatives to promote economic diversity and jobs.
