Our focus on batteries advances our commitment to pursue lower-carbon solutions while leveraging our leadership position and expertise as a refiner in the specialty graphite coke market.
Speciality graphite coke
Phillips 66 is a global supplier of speciality graphite coke in the electric vehicle manufacturing chain, and we are looking at ways that we can support the development of a U.K.-based EV supply chain.
The Humber Refinery is the only European facility producing battery anode coke, which forms a critical component for lithium-ion batteries used in EV’s and in consumer electronics.
Our current production of battery anode coke is sufficient for batteries for placing 1.3 million EVs on the road every year, and we are developing multiple projects to expand this capability.
By 2027, all U.K.- and EU-produced EVs are required to have at least 55% of the vehicle content by value produced domestically. Phillips 66 Limited is actively working to support this through its work with the Advanced Propulsion Centre by conducting a feasibility study into building a battery anode production facility and battery recycling capability in the U.K.
