Lithium Australia aims to ensure an ethical supply of energy metals to the battery industry by creating a circular battery economy that enhances both sustainability and resource security. Reprocessing spent lithium-ion batteries to create new ones is intrinsic to this plan, with the Company operating Australia’s only fully integrated mixed-battery recycling business.
Having rationalised its portfolio of lithium projects/alliances, Lithium Australia continues its research into, and the development of, proprietary extraction processes for the conversion of all lithium silicates (including mine waste), and of fines generally discarded during conventional spodumene conversion, to lithium chemicals, from which it will produce advanced cathode materials for the battery industry globally.
The Australian federal government has recognised the Company’s progress through the awarding of substantial research grants designed to progress the nation’s advanced battery capabilities.
By uniting resources and innovation, Lithium Australia seeks to vertically integrate lithium extraction, processing and recycling.
