Lithium Australia aspires to ‘close the loop’ on the energy-metal cycle. Its disruptive technologies are designed to furnish the lithium battery industry with ethical and sustainable supply solutions. Lithium Australia’s technology comprises the SiLeach® and LieNA® lithium extraction processes, along with superior cathode material production courtesy of VSPC Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Lithium Australia) and enhanced recycling techniques for battery materials. By uniting resources and the best available technology, Lithium Australia seeks to establish a vertically integrated lithium processing business.
The changing policies of the Australian federal government, with respect to support for research and development, have had an impact on the future plans of Lithium Australia NL (ASX: LIT). As current policies reduce the support provided in developing new technologies, Lithium Australia is overhauling its research and development activities to allow its programs to be expedited.
Lithium Australia will be shipping its lithium-iron phosphate cathode material to Chinese battery manufacturers for testing.
Lithium Australia (ASX: LIT) is about to ship its technologically advanced lithium-iron phosphate cathode powders to China after producing the material through its recently commissioned VSPC plant in Queensland.
Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) managing director Adrian Griffin speaks to Proactive Investors about the recent grand reopening of Australia’s only cathode powder pilot plant and battery-testing facility, in Brisbane, Queensland.
Adrian Griffin, managing director of Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT), speaks to Proactive Investors about the two-stage SiLeach® pilot plant trial at ANSTO Minerals.
SiLeach® is a proprietary process for extracting lithium from mine waste materials to produce lithium chemicals. In a world first, Lithium Australia aims to convert mine waste to lithium-ion batteries.
Griffin describes Stage I results as ‘spectacular.’ Proactive Investors can reveal that Stage II testing began two days ago, producing lithium phosphate within 16 hours of starting up.
Economically recovering lithium from mine waste without expensive and energy hungry “roasting” of the feed stock may seem like a lofty goal, but Lithium Australia is now well on its way towards proving that its proprietary SiLeach technology can do just that.
