Lithium is in high demand, but few understand and appreciate the need for American battery-ready Graphite (specifically, Coated Spherical Purified Graphite or ‘CSPG’  battery graphite to produce the anode in a lithium-ion battery). Demand for CSPG is expected to grow significantly moving forward. Alabama Graphite intends to become an American-sourced-and-manufactured CSPG producer and the only producer in the contiguous United States.
