International Graphite, or IG, is an Australian company with a global outlook. We will be one of the first Australian manufacturers to supply high quality graphite products to growing international markets establishing a new supply source for technologies that are helping to build a cleaner, greener world.
Why? So we can deliver superior returns to our shareholders and meet society’s energy and transport needs in an environmentally responsible way.
IG is in the final stages of seed capital raising and has its sights set on public listing on the Australian Stock Exchange.
IG aims to be a global frontrunner in the manufacture of high-quality downstream graphite products for industrial applications and an ethical producer of battery anode material to meet projected global demand for high performance batteries.
The company is establishing an integrated production facility at Collie, in Western Australia. Our staged development plan is agile and responsive to market opportunity. A base business in micronised graphite and foils will generate fast-to-market products and early revenue to fund ongoing growth and expansion. A Definitive Feasibility Study has been completed with first product expected within 12 months of commissioning, currently planned for FY 21-22.
IG is also developing a pilot plant to progress production and sales of battery anode material (BAM) to supply the exploding global market for Lithium-ion batteries used for energy storage systems and to run electric vehicles. These batteries require more graphite than lithium.
Our unique business model leverages the experienced of a world class team of process engineers, project managers, finance and product marketing specialists and the expert guidance of our engineering and technical partner BatteryLimits, who will drive results.
Led by experts in the Australian metals industry, IG was founded by our Chairman Phil Hearse whose expert knowledge of the graphite sector identified a unique and emerging opportunity to put Western Australia at the forefront of the global graphite industry.
The Board has channelled their combined Australian knowhow and metals expertise to building a strong international team with graphite experience and a global view. Their considerable industry contacts have secured world class partnerships for equipment and feedstock – ensuring IG can deliver quality products, reliability and speed to market.
Our business has strong government and community endorsement. It aligns with the Australian Government’s vision to build a robust advanced manufacturing sector and Western Australia Government initiatives to develop a world class renewable energy storage industry. The WA Government is supportive of IG’s plans and is actively working to attract new and emerging industries to Collie, with funding and other initiatives to promote economic diversity and jobs.
IG’s operations bring manufacturing of high quality graphite components for the global renewables and energy industries to Western Australia. The operation creates new export and employment opportunities while promoting sustainable technology, including the development of thermal purification to replace harmful chemical processing. This will help built an ethical supply chain and strength the WA
We operate under the values of innovation, respect, sustainability, technical and financial excellence and agility and are committed to international standards of quality, safety and environmental performance.
