Enhance Your Battery

Northern Graphite holds the exclusive license to develop, produce and sell Porocarb – a porous carbon material used as a performance additive in batteries. The single particles of Porocarb contain a well-defined network of interconnected macropores which can serve as reservoirs or transport routes providing unique functionality and performance-enhancing capabilities. Porocarb can be tailored from the mechanically stable backbone to the pores, opening up opportunities to incorporate macropores in electrodes – an innovative design factor that delivers significant benefits for next-generation battery systems, including lithium-Ion batteries and all solid state batteries.

Porocarb was developed by a Germany-based team of highly qualified experts includes PhDs and scientists with a strong background in carbon materials, electrochemistry, and batteries brings extensive knowledge and years of experience in the development, production, and product placement of carbon materials for batteries (focus on lithium-Ion batteries) who now make up Northern’s Battery Materials Group. They operate out of a fully operational, state-of-the-art laboratory in Frankfurt to provide a wide range of advanced characterization techniques for carbon and battery materials. This includes electrochemical characterizations on coin cell level, as well as a comprehensive set of chemical and physical characterization methods for battery materials.
