EcoGraf share price lifts on positive lithium-ion battery results

Before the market open, EcoGraf released results for its recycled lithium-ion battery anode.

The company noted that the results are a significant achievement and in line with major lithium-ion battery specifications.

EcoGraf noted that the purified carbon anode material is a high value finished product. The anode is made up of both natural and synthetic graphite, representing over half the raw materials in a lithium-ion battery.

According to EcoGraf, recycling the material would provide significant benefits to battery manufacturers. Key benefits include lowering battery unit costs and reducing carbon emissions.

In the announcement, EcoGraf noted that SungEel will submit the purified product to the South Korean lithium-ion battery manufacturer for battery cell tests.
