  • G6 Energy Corp teams up with Anzaplan to study alternative graphite processing technologies.
  • The initiative marks a vital step towards establishing a more sustainable and localized graphite supply chain, pivoting from China's environmental footprint.
  • In 2022, China dominated the global demand for natural graphite anode materials, processing 100% of the global output.
  • G6 utilizes Kearney Mine materials to explore scalable, sustainable processing alternatives.


TORONTO, January 1st 2023 G6 Energy Corp ("G6"), has engaged Anzaplan, a world-renowned provider of analytical and engineering services for mineral and metal projects. Together, they will analyze and test midstream processing technologies, aiming to bring more eco-friendly alternatives to the forefront of the graphite industry.

China, controlling 100% of the global demand for natural graphite anode materials in 2022, operates with an energy-intensive process involving substantial chemical use and water, which has a considerable environmental impact. Given the market size of anode materials and the burgeoning demand, new, greener technologies can tap into a vast market if proven scalable and efficient.

G6 will be conducting the study using materials from its wholly-owned Kearney Mine, offering an accurate analysis based on actual versus theoretical alternatives. This approach reflects G6's commitment to environmental stewardship while ensuring operational efficiency.

The engagement with Anzaplan will assess a range of factors, including capital and operational expenditures (Capex and Opex), along with Kearney material-specific attributes. The work contemplates the production facilities needed for milling, spheroidization, purification, and coating to produce Spheroidized Purified Graphite (SPG) and Coated Spheroidized Purified Graphite (CSPG).

"As the largest component of a lithium-ion battery with no known replacement, graphite's demand is steadily increasing," said Peter McCague, Chairman of G6 Energy Corp. "Our engagement with Anzaplan is a step towards meeting this demand sustainably, by developing less impactful processing methods and reducing dependence on China."

G6 Energy Corp looks forward to sharing more updates as this vital project evolves.
