Graphite processing could lead to cheaper lithium-ion batteries

Independent test work on graphite producer Talga Resources’ Swedish ore has shown it requires less processing— which could pave the way to cheaper lithium-ion batteries.

Tests on the Australian firm’s ore has shown its graphite doesn’t require milling, purification, shaping or coating to meet commercial-level performance in capacity over 100 cycles in cell tests.
