Expertise in mobile energy for electric vehicles
With a unique portfolio of synthetic and natural graphite powders, conductive carbon blacks and custom-designed dispersions, we are 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 and standard lead acid batteries, zinc-carbon batteries, fuel cells and battery can coatings.
Meeting new-generation energy needs for the automotive industry
With electric cars in more and more garages, high-capacity mobile energy is definitely here to stay. We offer pioneering high-tech, high-performance solutions based on engineered carbon materials for rechargeable batteries and fuel cells. Energy density – i.e. 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.
