BTR is the world’s largest manufacturer of battery anode materials for lithium ion batteries and a world leader in technology development and production of battery anode materials supplying both the Chinese domestic and export markets.
The material tested was taken from concentrate produced, as part of the recently completed Stage-1 pilot program undertaken at BGRIMM’s piloting facilities in Beijing, China.
Work continuing with tier-1 companies
BlackEarth managing director Tom Revy said: “The sample endorsement given by BTR highlights the focus and competencies BEM is applying to this important (qualification) period of DFS development for its Maniry Graphite Project.
“The company will continue to work with tier-1 companies across all of its product lines as a key component to delivering its fast track to cash flow strategy.”
After the completion of testing, BTR has requested a larger concentrate sample to be sent to its testing facilities in Shenzhen for confirmatory test work and evaluation as potential future feed to their spheronising and lithium ion battery anode manufacturing plants.
