TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / September 3, 2020 / Gratomic Inc. (“GRAT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:GRAT)(OTC PINK:CBULF)(FRANKFURT:CB81) (WKN:A143MR) aims to become a cleaner graphite source for North American consumers and is pleased to announce the Company’s objective to process graphite in a clean and environmentally responsible manner.
As the battery manufacturing industry becomes increasingly competitive, many electric vehicle battery manufacturers are currently forced towards choosing lesser environmentally friendly graphite options. In many cases, the mining and processing methods used can be unsafe and some have the potential to cause major pollution in neighbouring cities and towns. Alternatively, many electric vehicle battery manufacturers are turning to synthetic graphite sources, often created in labs from petroleum and biogas by-products, among other carbon sources. These methods can also potentially produce undesirable emissions during the processing phase.
