Graphite is non-toxic, chemically inert and ecologically friendly. Additional characteristics of graphite are high electric and thermic conductivity, excellent lubricity and an extreme temperature shock resistance. These characteristics and various others make natural and synthetic graphite a widely used material nowadays. Yet, graphite is also a useful, not to say essential component of various future-oriented and trendsetting technologies.
One of the fastest growing application is the use of graphite as anode material in Lithium-Ion-batteries, e.g. for electric driven cars or for domestic electricity storage systems (ESS). Here, graphite offers a substantial input to reduce global CO2 emission.
