Why graphite is essential to electrification

A global graphite shortage is a matter of when, not if, without new sources of supply. For the US, which is 100% dependent on foreign imports of the material, it is a ticking time bomb that could derail the nation’s vehicle electrification and decarbonisation ambitions.

This emphasises the importance of establishing a reliable, secure and sustainable ‘mine to battery’ electric vehicle (EV) supply chain, beginning with a domestic graphite source and integrating it with processing, manufacturing, and recycling to create a full and secure supply chain.

Graphite is known for its metallic properties, including thermal and electrical conductivity, and non-metallic properties, including inertia, high thermal resistance, and lubricity. 

Tirupati Graphite PLC (LON:TGR) is a fully integrated specialist graphite and graphene producer, with operations in Madagascar and India. The Company is delivering on this strategy by being fully integrated from mine to graphene. Its global multi-location operations include primary mining and processing in Madagascar, hi-tech graphite processing in India to produce specialty graphite, and a state-of-art graphene and technology R&D center to be established in India.
