Zenyatta Ventures Ltd. (TSXV:ZEN) announced the results of a first-step screening on Albany graphite. The screening shows that the graphite can be used in multiple components for fuel cells.

As quoted in the press release:

The initial screening by a global leader, which is under a confidentiality agreement, was conducted for purity, particle size, corrosion resistance and other desirable properties for use in fuel cells. These tests showed Zenyatta’s graphite material to be suitable for use in hydrogen fuel cells with further advanced testing planned.  Testing results were obtained from a lab-scale sample provided by SGS Canada Inc. (‘SGS’) solely for the purpose of providing early evaluation on the suitability and effectiveness of Albany graphite in various applications.

Dr. Bharat Chahar, vice president of market development at Zenyatta, stated:

Purity and particle size of the material provided by SGS processing was already in the range needed for fuel cell applications, therefore no further milling or purification was needed. Due to simple mineralogy, high crystallinity and desirable particle size distribution, Zenyatta graphite 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.
