Syrah Resources Ltd. (ASX:SYR) announced that it has produced uncoated, battery-grade spherical graphite using natural flake graphite from its Mozambique-based Balama project.

As quoted in the press release:

The battery market currently represents approximately 23% of global flake graphite output and is expected to be a rapidly growing sector due to lithium ion (Li-ion) battery demand.

The key driver of this growth is the expected increase in electric vehicle sales and energy storage applications which uses spherical graphite as the anode in the Li-ion battery. Specifications achieved include fixed carbon of 99.96%, d50 of 15.64 microns and a BET surface area of 4.236 m2/g. These specifications are consistent with those of leading Chinese manufacturers and have been confirmed by a Li-ion battery anode producer in China.
