There are currently no commercial-scale graphite processing projects in Canada or the U.S., despite the ever-increasing demand for natural and synthetic graphite for lithium-ion battery anodes. This unique development is the first of its kind in North America with the potential to become a world leader in the regeneration of key active materials that fuel a strategic, greener economy.

Most graphite mined from the ground is 3-4% pure carbon content. By extracting raw materials from the Welland, Ont. site and recycling them through a new process into a high purity product with 99.5% carbon content (as per current testing), ReGen is positioned to become an integral battery-grade synthetic graphite supplier with a substantially lower carbon footprint than mined or new synthetic graphite producers.

Once extraction and regeneration is complete, the Welland, Ont. site will then be clean and prime for residential, commercial and industrial development.


  • Testing, characterization and process flow design activities are underway to regenerate and upgrade synthetic graphite found on-site to battery-grade material.

  • ReGen synthetic graphite is expected to have the lowest carbon footprint of any synthetic or natural graphite around the globe.

  • Synthetic graphite will be processed at a fully integrated facility to be constructed adjacent to the resource stockpile in Welland and close to Ontario OEMs and battery makers, and near the U.S. border.

  • Investment in project development and the battery anode processing facility will create new jobs in the Niagara Region.

  • Once complete, the land will be redeveloped for residential and commercial/industrial uses.
