Graphite plays a vital role in the production of lithium-ion batteries essential for electric vehicles. Enhancing its domestic production could bolster the creation of electric batteries, facilitating the shift to clean technology solutions and accommodating the surging need for Li-ion batteries. Additionally, such an effort would contribute to the stabilization of the power grid and advance Quebec's electrification policies in addressing climate change.
