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.
Lithium Australia NL’s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin tells Proactive its subsidiary VSPC Ltd has produced lithium manganese ferro phosphate (LMFP) cathode powder of advanced and consistent quality which is now available for commercial testing in lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). He says several regular VSPC clients are set to test the LMFP, using it to manufacture commercial-format LIBs.
Lithium Australia NL’s (ASX:LIT)(OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin discusses with Proactive’s Andrew Scott the upcoming launch of the national Battery Stewardship scheme. Designed to promote battery recycling it’ll see a national network of drop-off sites established for consumers to return spent batteries. It’s set to launch in January 2022.
Lithium Australia NL’s (ASX:LIT)(OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin tells Proactive commercialisation of its next-generation LieNA® caustic conversion process for the recovery of lithium from spodumene is progressing well. This week they’ve executed a commercialisation agreement with Deutsche Rohstoff AG (DRAG), a German natural resources holding and investment company.
Lithium Australia NL‘s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin caught up with Proactive’s Andrew Scott soon after welcoming an update from joint venture partner Galan Lithium Ltd (ASX:GLN) on exploration at the Greenbushes South Project in Western Australia. He adds that they’ve also progressed the joint venture agreement with Charger Metals which was announced in December 2020 with Charger making progress towards its initial public offering on the ASX.
Lithium Australia NL‘s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin caught up with Proactive’s Andrew Scott soon after its subsidiary VSPC Ltd (VSPC) delivered a positive pre-feasibility study demonstrating its capacity to produce advanced lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) cathode powders. The PFS confirms ‘robust’ project economics with proposed production to ramp up to a capacity of 10,000 tonnes per annum over a three-year period, reaching nameplate capacity in 2026.
Lithium Australia NL’s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin caught up with Proactive’s Andrew Scott following the news its wholly-owned subsidiary VSPC Ltd has received notice of acceptance for the patent application for its proprietary cathode material manufacturing process from IP Australia. Griffin says acceptance of the patent application is a great step forward for the company.
Lithium Australia has developed a suite of processing technologies capable of transporting lithium from concentrates, and waste materials (tailings, sub-grade concentrates and spent batteries) through to cathode powders and lithium ion batteries with the minimum number of process steps and optimised carbon footprint.
