Recently, U.S. President Joe Biden invoked the Defense Protection Act for battery materials, including graphite, and signed into law the bipartisan infrastructure bill allocating more than $6 billion for domestic supply chain and critical mineral development.

“I’m delighted to join the Board of Graphite One at this time of tremendous change,” Mr. Packman said, “not only in terms of how technology is transforming so many key elements of our lives, from energy to communications, medical and defense technologies – but also at a time when stakeholders are focused on socially responsible resource development, advanced manufacturing to meet our future technology needs, and recycling programs to create a full circle economy out of the resources that are extracted to minimize environmental impact.”
