Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. (TSXV:ZEN) announced plans to collaborate with Ballard Power Systems Inc. (TSX:BLD) on high-purity graphite, which is required by fuel cell technology related to energy storage.
A first-step screening process has revealed that graphite from Zenyatta’s Albany deposit is suitable for use in fuel cells.
Highlights include:

  • Zenyatta graphite exhibits high thermal stability and corrosion resistance under Ballard testing;
  • Early testing shows Albany graphite to be suitable for BPP and GDL fuel cell components;
  • Zenyatta and Ballard plan to build components and further test these in fuel cells.

Dr. Bharat Chahar, Zenyatta’s vice president of market development, commented:

We are very pleased with these results from the Ballard testing. The purity and particle size of theAlbanygraphite material provided was already in the range needed for fuel cell applications, and therefore no further milling or purification was needed. Due to simple mineralogy, high crystallinity and desirable particle size distribution, Zenyatta’sAlbanygraphite has shown first screening specification ranges needed for the hydrogen fuel cell components. While further tests are ongoing to verify other performance characteristics, this initial feedback on results is extremely encouraging and quite promising for our upcoming advanced testing.
