With a unique portfolio of synthetic and natural graphite powders, conductive carbon blacks and custom-designed dispersions, Imerys is the leader in highly conductive carbon based solutions for mobile energy. Our graphite and carbon black products are consistently the high-performance conductive additives of choice for lithium-ion batteries, alkaline batteries, advanced lead acid batteries, zinc-carbon batteries, fuel cells and battery can coatings.
With electric cars in more and more garages, high-capacity mobile energy is definitely here to stay. Imerys is pioneering high-tech, high-performance solutions based on engineered carbon materials for rechargeable batteries and fuel cells. Energy density—ie. how far a vehicle can run before needing to recharge—is the main parameter, but durability, cycle stability, fast charging and cost containment are also key. In addition to performance, we are particularly attentive to the sustainability of the end-product and therefore operate efficient, large-scale and high-yield manufacturing platforms.
