Graphite versus Lithium - What Investors Should Know
Over 18 million EVs will be cruising U.S roads by 2030. And every one million EVs manufactured will require 82,000 tons of the metal graphite for their batteries. That's a total of 1,476,000 tons of graphite! Graphite is actually the largest component of EV batteries - NOT lithium. Experts warn of a massive graphite shortfall, especially since North America currently has no operating graphite mines.

Graphite Shortage Could Derail the $7 Trillion EV Transition
Graphite (not lithium) is expected to see the largest increase in demand of all battery metals over the next decade. But projections warn of an 8 million ton shortfall of graphite by 2040. That's why 97 more graphite mines are needed just to keep up with battery production for the $7 trillion transition to electric vehicles.
