At Phillips 66, we are looking to expand our participation in the battery space which would support the growth of supply chains in the U.S. and Europe.

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.
