Panasonic Energy signs deal for synthetic graphite for electric vehicle batteries

Panasonic Energy is focused on strengthening its supply chain in North America while reducing its environmental impact. As part of this effort, the company has announced its plan to use Novonix’s synthetic graphite in EV battery manufacturing facilities in the United States.

It is anticipated that Novonix will commence shipping synthetic graphite from Tennessee starting in 2025. In a bid to minimize the carbon footprint in the entire lithium-ion battery supply chain for electric vehicles, Panasonic Energy aims to achieve a 50% reduction as compared to 2022 levels.

In addition to the partnership with Novonix, the company is collaborating with other organizations to enhance its supply chain. One such collaboration is with Sila, from which Panasonic Energy has gained access to Titan Silicon, a nanocomposite silicon negative electrode.

Furthermore, Panasonic Energy is also in the process of planning for the construction of a third electric vehicle battery plant in the United States.
