Graphite is a perfect anode and has dominated the market since the birth of lithium-ion batteries.
There is currently no significant production of lithium-ion battery anode material in North America.
Most graphite sold in North America today is sourced from Chinese producers.
The North American market has traditionally been dominated by private, family-owned businesses who have been slow to respond to the rapidly changing landscape.
