International Graphite (IG) is a next-generation manufacturer of downstream graphite products and a new supply source for technologies that are helping to build a cleaner, greener world.
The company’s flagship is a new era processing hub in Collie, Western Australia, that will meet accelerating world demand for treated graphite products. Plant construction is expected to start in 2020 with first product by mid-2021.
Demand for graphite is being generated by the uptake of new technologies. Consumer uptake of renewable power storage, as well as technologies that will revolutionise personal computing and tiny medical devices, are creating new uses for graphite.
Demand for natural graphite for batteries is expected to grow, from less than 200,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) in 2017 to more than 1.7 million tpa by 2028, according to graphite authority Benchmark Minerals Intelligence. In his address to a 2019 US senate hearing, Benchmark’s Managing Director Simon Moores stressed the strategic value of graphite and other battery commodities.
International Graphite has a unique business model leveraging off its experienced process engineers and consultants to drive and apply technology that is the leading edge in graphite processing. In conjunction with its international technology partners, IG is developing environmentally responsible processing for a product mix that meets the needs of our customers in the US, Europe and Australia.
IG will initially purchase high purity spheroidised part-processed graphite product, and high purity expandable graphite, from established, proven producers in China who are workd leaders in graphite processing. It will be transported to Collie for value-added processing to produce advanced graphite products for the renewables and electronics industries. Downstream graphite products will be sold to technology and industrial component manufacturers worldwide.
International quality, safety and environmental standards will be built into our product DNA ensuring our suppliers, operators and customers are all part of an ethical and sustainable supply chain, that extends from mine to market.
