EcoGraf (EGR) has completed a product qualification program for a major anode producer.

According to the company, EcoGraf’s HFfree battery anode material outperformed reference material from existing producers during the program.

Testing was undertaken by a prospective customer to assess the product ahead of production at EGR’s new battery anode material facility in WA.

In order to prepare the product sample, a large mechanical shaping program using commercial scale equipment was used in conjunction with an international equipment manufacturer.

This was followed by HFfree purification through a pilot plant, where EcoGraf has been conducting its pre-construction purification programs.

EcoGraf said the product sample not only satisfied the anode producer’s specifications, but also outperformed against reference materials in half-cell electrochemical testing.

The company said this was an important milestone ahead of construction plans for its new battery anode material facility that would export products to battery markets in Asia, Europe and North America.

The business hopes the facility will support the global transition to clean energy, using a superior, environmentally responsible HFfree purification technology which provides customers with sustainably produced high performance battery anode material.

EcoGraf shares were up 1.55 per cent, trading at 65.5 cents at 1:40 pm AEDT.
