Global amorphous graphite market trend 2025-2027 Do you knnow amorphous graphite? by

Guotai Junan released a research report saying that under the background of carbon neutrality, the scarcity of coal mines is prominent, and the value of assets will continue to increase. The high point of capital expenditure in the coal industry appeared in 2012. Under the general direction of carbon neutrality, the overall investment in the industry has slowed down, and capital expenditure has gradually declined. From 2021 to now, the Energy Bureau of the National Development and Reform Commission has only newly approved 17.4 million tons of amorphous graphite.

Amorphous graphite is usually formed by contact metamorphism of anthracite coal seams with metamorphic agents (e.g. tectonic stress, magma, etc.). The result is microcrystalline graphite, often referred to as amorphous graphite.

In a few cases, regional metamorphism can result in amorphous graphite if larger metamorphic agents come into contact with the anthracite coal seam. However, this regional metamorphism is less common and a single joint of graphite is usually found.

As amorphous graphite is made by the metamorphism of anthracite coal seams, graphite itself is a seam mineral (rather than a vein mineral).

As a joint mineral, amorphous graphite tends to have a higher ash content than other types of natural graphite. This is a result of the deposition of other organic matter by the metamorphic agent as it interacts with the anthracite. After all, coal production environments are often rich in organic matter. In addition, graphite material may be free or mechanically attached to quartz or other materials.


The added organic material makes amorphous graphite the least graphitic of the three natural graphites. It is relatively poorly crystalline, typically showing a graphite content of 20% to 40% after mining. In contrast, other forms of natural graphite can have graphite contents of up to 90%.

Although all natural graphite must be processed before it can be used, amorphous graphite must be processed most extensively because of its low graphite content.

What are the good uses of amorphous graphite?

While not suitable for all uses, amorphous graphite has many applications. Its high heat resistance makes it suitable for manufacturing and is commonly used in crucibles, molds, ladles, sinks and nozzles. Even the electrodes of many metallurgical furnaces and the lining of iron blast furnaces are made of amorphous graphite.

In steel production, amorphous graphite can be added as a recarburizer to improve strength and durability.

In other industries, amorphous graphite is used to make brake pads, clutch material, washers and pencil leads. Pencil leads are usually made of the lowest quality amorphous graphite, and this particular use is mainly in China.
