(Before It's News)

High purity graphite from Leading Edge Materials Corp‘s (CVE:LEM) Woxna project is suitable for use in lithium ion batteries for the car industry.

The firm today released the latest results from process optimization and qualification test work, which bettered previous findings.

“Woxna high purity spherical graphite product is now of a quality to warrant progression to 18650 lithium ion battery cell manufacture,” the group said.

This would be followed by  standard tests including those to measure anode and cathode performance and stability under “real-world” conditions, it added.

Leading Edge president and chief executive Blair Way said: “We are very pleased with the high purity achieved by thermal purification of the Woxna concentrate at an active commercial site in the United States.”

He added:  “Our Woxna concentrate stockpile can provide very large volumes of graphite concentrate for ongoing qualification and when appropriate scaled-up pilot plant test work.”

The lab looked at key characteristics on the samples such as graphitic carbon content, tap density, BET surface area, particle size distribution, reversible capacity and cell life cycle testing (HPC).
