Australia’s International Graphite on Monday announced the commissioning of a new A$12.5 million (USD 8.14 million) graphite processing plant at Collie, Western Australia, with a capacity to produce 200 metric tons of micronised graphite per year.

The company plans to use graphite concentrate from its Springdale Graphite Project in Western Australia to feed the plant’s downstream processing operations, it said.

The project is expected to generate over 100 jobs at Springdale and Collie.

Micronised graphite is the first stage in producing battery anode materials for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. It is also critical for industrial products, such as lubricants, polymers, plastics, ceramics and refractory materials.

The plant has been funded by an A$2 million grant from the Western Australia Government’s Collie Futures Industry Development Fund, the company said. Approval for construction of the plant is expected as early as mid-year.
