Nouveau Monde Has Submitted a Patent Application for its Proprietary Green Thermochemical Purification Technology

Nouveau Monde has submitted a patent application for its proprietary thermochemical purification technology to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as part of its intellectual property strategy. Leveraging Québec’s abundant, clean, and affordable hydropower, the Company’s technology avoids using hydrofluoric acid in favor of high temperatures and the addition of chlor-based reagent.


  • Nouveau Monde’s proprietary technology offers a greener and more sustainable alternative to that currently used in the traditional anode material production
  • This technology is expected to be used in the Company’s Phase 1 purification facilities in Bécancour which are in the process of being commissioned
  • Nouveau Monde’s Phase 1 purification facility is the first of its kind built in the Western World
  • The same proprietary technology will likewise be expected to be used in the development of the large-scale Phase 2 commercial plant which is currently advancing in parallel
  • Using raw material from its own mining project, Nouveau Monde’s advanced technology produces high-purity graphite materials intended to meet the industry specifications for usage in the anode part of lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells and other specialty applications

“Research & Development is a critical component of our business model. The filing of this important patent application is a tangible manifestation of our commitment to sustainable development and the success Nouveau Monde has already achieved from its Center of Excellence in Québec.”


Eric Desaulniers

President & CEO

 “I believe there is much appetite in the marketplace for alternatives to China’s dominant chemical-heavy processes. We have developed a technology that takes full advantage of Québec’s green hydroelectric asset and operates in a closed loop with our chemical supplier to minimize the environmental footprint of our purified products. This patent application reiterates our engagement towards R&D, innovation, and environmental stewardship to drive greater sustainability into the battery value chain.”
