Silicon-Modified British Columbia Natural Graphite for Use as High Energy Density Anodes for Electric Vehicle Lithium-Ion Batteries

Eagle Graphite owns and operates one of only two flake graphite production facilities in Canada, and the only graphite quarry in Western North America. The quarry is located in Passmore, B.C., near the City of Castlegar. This collaboration between Dr. Jian Liu’s group at The University of British Columbia and Eagle Graphite will produce graphite-silicon battery anodes using the Eagle Graphite quarry resource. The objective is to produce a commercialized anode with a capacity that would surpass the benchmark graphite anodes currently produced. The benefits of this project include the potential to establish B.C. as a global leader in anode production, and the production of batteries that are lighter and offer greater range.
