Expandable Large Flake Graphite
Expandable large flake graphite markets include: construction materials, fuel cells, gaskets and foil. This could grow larger than the graphite used in lithium-ion batteries.
Fine Flake Graphite
By 2030, fine flake graphite demand for lithium-ion batteries will soar to 852,000 tons a year from just 13,000 tons in 2015* market.
Sizes of Graphite
Large or jumbo flake graphite expands better than small flake graphite, commanding much higher margins. It is more cost-effective to manufacture. 200% more energy is needed to produce 1 ton of synthetic graphite.
DNI will mine all types of graphite. We have a larger percentage of large and jumbo flake graphite - the economical, environmentally friendly component required to fuel our clean energy revolution and to build safer, healthier environments.
The world is responding...
South Korean, Chinese and Japanese governments are recommending and potential legislating the use of flame retardant building materials in future building construction. This will drive strong demand for expandable graphite.
