Epsilon Advanced Materials partners Minviro to assess environmental impact

A key Lithium-ion battery play, Epsilon Advanced Materials has commissioned Minviro, a London based globally recognised LCA consultancy, for a comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for its graphite based active anode material products.

The objective of this LCA is to study the environmental performance of producing Epsilon Advanced Materials’ mesocoke powder, mesocoke granules and graphite based active anode materials products. Producing graphite based active anode materials for lithium-ion batteries is energy intensive. Existing graphite supply chains often locate energy-demanding process stages in regions with low-cost energy.

Tushar Gupta, Business Head, Epsilon Advanced Materials stated that “This study shows our commitment towards Agenda 2030 and the Paris Agreement. We would be studying the impact, by developing products that cater to the emerging needs for innovative, high-performance and quality carbon products that support the ensuing energy transition to mitigate carbon emissions. The very low carbon footprint becomes a key competitive advantage when we are seeing an increased focus on sustainable raw materials for the battery industry.”

LCA is a scientific and robust approach to quantifying environmental impacts of a product or service, to show the quantifiable impact of producing critical metals and minerals. It can also be used to identify impact mitigation opportunities for production chains, making it a critical step when developing projects.

Dr Robert Pell, Founder and CEO at Minviro added “Huge opportunities exist within the graphite supply chain to minimise environmental impacts and this LCA will help Epsilon Advanced Materials highlight their project’s environmental performance and allow them to take steps to reduce their overall impact.”
