At the heart of Québec’s battery hub, NMG is developing the Bécancour Battery Materials Plant, a complete advanced manufacturing platform for value-added graphite processing.


  • Location: 200,000 m² industrial site in Bécancour, Québec, about 150 km northeast of Montréal, on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

  • Production capacity: Approximately 43,000 tonnes per year of active anode material and other specialized products.

  • Local advantages: Industrial park with heavy infrastructure, clean and affordable hydroelectricity, direct chlorine supply, skilled workforce, and multimodal logistics base close to US and European markets.

  • Raw materials: Much of the Matawinie Mine’s production will be used as feedstock to supply the plant, taking advantage of operational efficiencies, product traceability, and higher margins.

  • Technologies: Exclusive purification process without the use of hydrofluoric acid and active R&D to produce the greenest materials.

  • Industrial cluster: Rapid development of on-site production of critical minerals and battery materials – GM-Posco, Ford, Nemaska Lithium, Vale.

  • Start-up: Preparatory work launched in parallel with engineering, process optimization, procurement, and stakeholder engagement activities.

Advanced graphite processing is essential for the material to achieve the optimum properties and performance required for use in lithium-ion batteries. 

Combining shaping, purification, and coating units, the Bécancour Battery Material Plant will refine graphite from our Matawinie Mine into high-purity, high-quality active anode material as per customer specifications.

By controlling all stages of processing, from ore to battery material, NMG ensures complete traceability of our products, quality control and direct sales to battery and EV manufacturers.

We are on track to become North America’s largest fully integrated producer of natural graphite active anode material for batteries.

Help build a sustainable future


NMG is committed to maximizing the local and regional benefits associated with the development of our projects, through training, employment and business opportunities with First Nations and communities.

Specialized training

In collaboration with the region’s educational and industrial players, NMG supports the implementation of CUSTOMIZED TRAINING programs to qualify the local workforce for jobs related to green technologies and industrial production.

Business Opportunities

Our team is forging links with the business community. We have already met with over 300 companies to promote BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES and target regional capabilities for the construction and operation of our Bécancour Battery Material Plant.

Electrifying Careers

At our Phase 1 plant or in preparation for our Phase 2 commercial activities, we are always on the lookout for bright, dedicated people driven by sustainability values. As we grow, so does our team.

Community Investment

Through our DONATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS program, we support the socio-economic development and well-being of our communities, as well as initiatives aligned with our corporate values and sustainable development objectives

Procurement is managed by a centralized process that strives to ensure compliance with NMG’s environmental, quality, and health and safety programs.

Stay tuned

Committed to informing residents and the business community of the progress of its project, NMG sends information notices by email for each milestone.

NMG wants to ensure a harmonious cohabitation with the community and our stakeholders. We recognize that our activities can generate impacts, both negative and positive, and propose concrete tools to ensure a feedback mechanism with stakeholders.
