ICCSINO ANODE CONF: China’s natural spherical graphite producers see ‘green production’ trend
Published: Tuesday, 01 June 2021
Industry participants attending the anode conference held in the city of Qingdao, in China’s Shandong province, at the end of May considered ‘green production’ to be the likely trend for spherical graphite production in the near future, amid Beijing’s growing efforts to bring in pollution controls.
The global demand for cost-effective energy storage
solutions and home energy storage continues to boost the growth
of the graphite flake market, delegates heard.
Typically, flake graphite is formed into a spherical shape
by a process called mechanical attrition. This rounded
spherical graphite (SPG) allows for more efficient packaging
