Stage-2 large-scale pilot plant results
BlackEarth’s stage-2 large-scale pilot plant program has returned strong results with grades of fixed carbon (FC) content of more than 95% confirmed thus reaffirming the potential of Maniry Graphite Project product as being highly attractive for downstream processing and feed for rapidly expanding electric vehicle markets.
The tests that are being actively managed by BlackEarth’s executive team and conducted by world leaders in the testing of graphite and development of flow sheet and plant design are two weeks ahead of schedule.
