Nouveau Monde Now Producing Spherical Graphite

SAINT-MICHEL-DES-SAINTS, Quebec, Feb. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nouveau Monde Graphite Inc. (a??Nouveau Mondea?? or a??NMGa??), (TSX.V: NOU; OTCQX: NMGRF; Frankfurt: NM9)A has successfully commissioned its demonstration micronization and spheronization line. The first samples of spherical graphite attest to the performance of the secondary transformation process developed by NMG. The successful commissioning of the commercial-scale equipment received at the Saint-Michel-des-Saints demonstration plant in December will allow Nouveau Monde to move forward with its strategy to supply the lithium-ion battery market with a product that is ethically and sustainably extracted and processed.
In the coming weeks, Nouveau Monde will continue to calibrate and optimize this line to offer high-purity pre-qualification samples to a variety of potential customers. Micronization and spheronization are two essential steps to transform graphite concentrate into an anode material for use in lithium-ion batteries, a market sector that is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years.Lab-certified graphite that is ready for marketFor almost two years, Nouveau Monde has been working with Hydro-QuA©beca??s Center of Excellence in Transportation Electrification and Energy Storage (CETEES), a world-class pole of innovation in the field of battery materials for electric vehicles and other stationary and mobile energy storage applications. This partnership supports the development of Nouveau Mondea??s process to produce anode material for lithium-ion batteries.Laboratory tests and analysis at the CETEESa??s state-of-the-art facilities have shown that the Matawinie deposit graphite meets all the requirements for use in lithium-ion batteries. Half-cell and full-cell electrochemical testing (using NMC and LFP cathodes) confirmed the cycling performance of the Matawinie graphite (over 300 cycles at C/2). In addition, the tests demonstrated excellent load capacity a?? 370mAh/g compared to the industry reference material at 350mAh/g a?? and high stability when subjected to rapid charge/discharge cycles (up to 3C). In summary, the spherical graphite from the Matawinie project compares favourably to commercial reference material in the lithium-ion battery industry.
