Graphjet partners Benchmark Week 2023 ‘to accelerate’ development of green battery materials

GRAPHJET Technology Sdn Bhd, the world’s first and only green graphite producer and a home-grown pioneering leader in sustainable materials technology, has made an ‘invaluable investment’ by having sponsored the esteemed Benchmark Week 2023 hosted by Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, the leading source of independent information for the lithium-ion battery supply chain and energy transition sector.

Held at The Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles from Nov 14-16, the event marked a pivotal convergence of experts in the lithium-ion battery supply chain and the broader energy transition sector.

The high-level conference – with more than 600 leading industry experts and investors in attendance – featured former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Nobel Laureate and father of lithium-ion battery, Prof M. Stanley Whittingham,

Graphjet  which is renowned for its ground-breaking initiative that transforms biomass waste into high-quality graphite and graphene currently stands at the forefront of sustainable advancements.

As the first and only company to achieve this feat, Graphjet’s participation in Benchmark Week 2023 underscores its commitment to eco-friendly innovation and the global lithium battery supply chain.

“We at Graphjet are excited to be part of Benchmark Week 2023 to showcase our unique technology that aligns perfectly with this year’s focus on sustainability in the lithium battery supply chain,” Graphjet’s CEO and founder Aiden Lee Ping Wei pointed out.
