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) Adrian Griffin discusses with Proactive how they’re ‘closing the loop’ on the energy-metal cycle. The company’s recently received a standard patent ‘Certificate of Grant’ from IP Australia for its SiLeach® extraction technology for low-energy recovery of lithium from micas – potentially a short-cut in the production of lithium-ion batteries.
Listen to ASX-listed Lithium Australia Managing Director, Adrian Griffin talk to Matt Birney on the Bulls N’ Bears Report about the company’s processing technology that just might turn uneconomic lithium deposits into profitable projects.
Andrew Mackenzie, managing director of Lithium Australia NL (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) subsidiary Envirostream, speaks to Proactive soon after commencing its expanded field trial program for 2021, following successful trials last year using recycled alkaline battery material as a fertiliser micronutrient. The expanded program is targeting manganese-deficient soil types and will assess two products based on positive outcomes of the process development for the separation of manganese from single-use alkaline batteries.
Lithium Australia NL‘s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) Adrian Griffin speaks to Proactive’s Andrew Scott soon after receiving a standard patent ‘Certificate of Grant’ from IP Australia for its SiLeach® extraction technology for low-energy recovery of lithium from micas – potentially a short-cut in the production of lithium-ion batteries. The process can produce a range of lithium chemicals, including lithium carbonate and lithium phosphate (Li3PO4) which is the shortest route to the production of lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) batteries and is also advantageous from an environmental, social and governance perspective.
Lithium Australia NL‘s (ASX:LIT) (OTCMKTS:LMMFF) (FRA:3MW) Adrian Griffin speaks to Proactive’s Andrew Scott soon after announcing shareholders are being offered a priority allocation in the upcoming Initial Public Offering of Charger Metals NL. The company has a joint venture agreement with Charger, which has an option to acquire LIT exploration projects that includes the Coates and Lake Johnston projects in Western Australia and the Bynoe Project in the Northern Territory. Lithium Australia retains a 30% interest in the exploration projects and will be the major shareholder in Charger.
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.
