New Opportunities for the PGM Industry in WA
Total Grant Value
Platinum Group Metals ( PGM) are needed for a range of new applications including hydrogen electrolysis and industrial chemical production.
A coordinated industry approach for the PGM processing in WA could accelerate the formation of a high value PGM industry by developing processing methods for producing marketable products.
The Minerals Research Institute of Western Australia (WA) requires a successful Respondent to undertake a study on the potential for development of a Platinum Group Metals industry in WA.
The tender can be found on Tenders WA website, www.tenders.wa.gov.au/

Proposed Benefits to WA
Recent discoveries of PGM resources by several WA companies have let to research in the concentration and processing of these metals. By identifying new opportunities and process paths for the metals, plus synergies of these projects could accelerate the opportunity for these companies.
Metals such as Nickel and Vanadium which have PGM as by products may also be encouraged to collaborate. Investment paths for the industry will become clearer as a result of this study.
