Anovion Technologies will make Decatur County, Georgia, the location for its latest manufacturing facility. The 1,500,000-square-foot plant will produce 40,000 metric tonnes per annum of synthetic graphite anode material for lithium-ion batteries. According to the company, Decatur County was selected because of its abundance of low- and carbon-free energy sources, existing infrastructure, and pipeline of skilled workers. Anovion’s $800 million investment will create over 400 jobs.
In a recent quote, Eric Stopka, Chief Executive Officer of Anovion, said, “Anovion conducted a thorough search to identify a location that addressed our energy, transportation, logistics, and human capital needs that would ensure we have the ecosystem in place to produce the highest quality and sustainable synthetic graphite anode material on the market today. Not only does existing infrastructure make Southwest Georgia an attractive location for Anovion’s new facility, but the proximity to other battery and EV manufacturing plants will allow us to further reduce our carbon footprint.”
