Major Project Status Approved by Australian Government 
COMPLEMENTS 'LEAD AGENCY' STATUS CONFERRED BY THE WA GOVERNMENT 
EcoGraf Limited (EcoGraf or the Company) (ASX: EGR) is pleased to report that the Australian Government has approved 
Major Project Status (MPS) for EcoGraf's Battery Anode Material Facility in Western Australia. 
In approving this status, the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Hon. Karen Andrews MP, has recognised the 
opportunity for the Battery Anode Material Facility to contribute to the growth of the critical minerals industry in 
Australia and that its planned investment in downstream critical minerals processing has the potential to encourage 
further project developments. 
Major Project Status recognises the importance of the development, which supports the Australian Government's Critical 
Minerals Strategy and Western Australia's Future Battery Industry Strategy. 
EcoGraf's Managing Director, Mr Andrew Spinks, stated "We are delighted to receive this support from the Australian 
Government as our development is positioned as an integral part of the downstream modern manufacturing of battery and 
critical minerals in Australia." 
"EcoGraf's development strongly aligns with recent legislative policy changes in Europe that require higher standards 
of environmental and social governance (ESG) in battery supply chains. 
"Unprecedented investment is currently underway to establish self-sufficient and sustainable battery manufacturing 
supply chains to support the electric vehicle industry." 
This announcement is authorised for release by Andrew Spinks, Managing Director.

About EcoGraf 
Founded on a commitment to innovation and sustainability, EcoGraf is building a vertically integrated business to 
produce high purity graphite for the lithium-ion battery market. 
The new state-of-the-art processing facility in Western Australia will manufacture spherical graphite products for 
export to Asia, Europe and North America using a superior, environmentally responsible purification technology to 
provide customers with sustainably produced, high performance battery anode graphite. In time the battery graphite 
production base will be expanded to include additional facilities in Europe and North America to support the global 
transition to clean, renewable energy in the coming decade. 
In addition, the Company's breakthrough recovery of graphite from recycled batteries using its EcoGraf(TM) process will 
enable the reduction of battery waste and the use of recycled graphite to lower battery production costs and improve 
battery lifecycle efficiency. 
To complement the battery graphite operations, EcoGraf is also developing the TanzGraphite natural flake graphite 
business, commencing with the Epanko Graphite Project, which will supply additional feedstock for the spherical 
graphite processing facilities and provide customers with a long term supply of high quality graphite products for 
industrial applications such as refractories, recarburisers and lubricants. 
EcoGraf, a unique vertically integrated graphite business, positioned for the future of clean energy.
