NOVONIX aims to reduce mining emissions with its GX-23 synthetic graphite product

Based on a life-cycle assessment being performed by sustainable mining specialist Minviro, NOVONIX says preliminary results suggest that its GX-23 synthetic graphite anode product generates a 60% decrease in CO2 emissions compared to graphite mining in two areas of China.

The unfinished life-cycle assessment, which has not been subjected to third-party peer review, compared GX-23 to graphite mining in the Inner Mongolia and Heilongjiang regions of China. The assessment will also study the environmental impact of GX-23 in an EV in terms of kWh and range and undergo third-party peer review to comply with ISO rules.
