Anovion Technologies is a U.S.-owned and based advanced materials business and commercial-scale manufacturer of premium, anode-grade synthetic graphite, in production today. As a leader in clean energy production of lithium-ion battery materials, Chicago-based Anovion Technologies is a key domestic source of this critical material that powers electric vehicles, energy storage systems, personal electronics, and military and defense applications. Our strategic vision is to focus on growth and innovation, positioning Anovion Technologies as a climate tech-driven leader in the U.S. energy transition.
Anovion began commercial production in early 2021 and is among a limited number of graphite anode producers in America to have successfully gained qualification for EV applications. In 2022, Anovion was awarded a grant totaling $117 million from the United States Department of Energy to scale production capacity to meet growing demand with the construction of a large-scale factory in Bainbridge, Georgia, and investment in its relocated Advanced technology Center of Excellence (ACE) near Niagara Falls, New York. Anovion Technologies has begun commencing a multi-year expansion program to target 150,000 metric tonnes of annual capacity for anode-grade synthetic graphite by 2030.
Pyrotek is a diverse, global team of highly trained engineers and technical manufacturing experts in aluminum and other high-temperature process industries. Before becoming Anovion, Pyrotek’s Battery Materials business had been supplying graphite to the lithium-ion battery industry for over 25 years.
