In the news

Lithium Australia NL‘s head of Battery Metals Mike Vaisey updates Proactive on the latest developments with the company’s subsidiary VSPC using lithium phosphate from spent lithium-ion batteries to create high-quality cathode material to be re-used in batteries.

The cathode material produced exceeded VSPC standards for electrochemical performance.

Lithium Australia is now in discussions with industry players in China and elsewhere as it seeks to establish a supply chain for the newly created and tested lithium-ferro-phosphate (LFP) cathode material produced from the recycled process.

Full interview:

Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) managing director Adrian Griffin updates Proactive Investors on the company’s milestone innovation in recycling lithium from old used batteries.

Griffin says the process of producing lithium-ferro-phosphate (LFP) cathode powder from the recycled lithium is being successfully undertaken by Lithium Australia, and is a major breakthrough for lithium and batteries as well as enhancing environment sustainability.

A major recycling challenge is to reduce batteries ending up in landfill and LIT’s breakthrough paves the way for the re-birthing of cathode materials.

Lithium Australia recycles lithium from spent batteries

SmallCaps | By Danica Cullinane

Lithium Australia has produced refined lithium phosphate from spent lithium-ion batteries, offering a recycling solution and paving the way for the re-birthing of cathode materials.

Battery minerals developer Lithium Australia (ASX: LIT) has found a way to recover lithium from spent lithium-ion batteries, offering a sustainable solution to the major recycling challenge of batteries being disposed in landfill.

Recycling needed to meet long-term demand

Speaking with Small Caps, Mr Griffin said current mining plus planned projects and expansions will not meet long-term consumption needs and alternative sources of lithium “may prove more attractive as genuine supply shortages put pressure on conventional production”.

He said by 2030, about 3.5 million tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent will be required each year for use in electric vehicles alone, yet global lithium production is currently at around 200,000tpa.
