Graphite Anode Materials

Graphite anode materials are one of the crucial raw materials for lithium-ion batteries (LiB), with graphite being the primary material for the battery anode. Over 95% of electric vehicle battery anodes contain graphite.

Sanergy's Advantages

Due to the high similarity in the manufacturing processes of graphite electrodes and graphite anode materials, Sanergy Group can leverage the technologies used in existing products to support the graphite anode materials business at minimal costs. The group has the great potential to take the first-mover advantage in the European market with our four “readiness”:

Expanding the brownfield project in Italy avoids time-consuming steps such as site selection and permit approvals. Compared to greenfield projects at the planning stage with market participants, construction projects can be initiated more quickly and efficiently.
The group will be the first manufacturer in Europe to introduce powder route manufacturing technology for synthetic graphite anode materials using cutting-edge Chinese technology, giving it an advantage over European manufacturers still in the process of developing powder route manufacturing technology or using outdated block route manufacturing technology.
The group has already ventured into the market, leading in customer qualification/ certification processes, identifying customer groups, maintaining strong customer loyalty, and establishing market entry barriers.
Establishing the European brand "Sanode," the product portfolio has been continuously optimized, tested by customers, and fully prepared for applications in electric vehicles and energy storage systems.

Technical Advantage

Sanergy leverages the common primary materials and manufacturing processes between graphite electrodes and graphite anode materials, such as baking and graphitization, to optimize factory utilization and achieve synergistic effects.

Additionally, the group possesses industry-leading production technology for graphite anode materials - the powder route synthetic graphite anode material manufacturing process technology, which can support the European battery supply chain. This provides assistance and advanced technological support for the localization of the European graphite anode material supply chain.

Production Process

This includes screening, grinding, and blending, granulation, baking, graphitization, coating and carbonization, as well as machining. The raw petroleum coke material is crushed and dried, then mixed with a binder such as asphalt. It undergoes steps such as surface modification by electric heating, cooling, fusion blending, and others to produce synthetic graphite anode.
