Total Grant Value
Project completed in two stages by Future Battery Industries CRC which receives allocation of MRIWA funds.
Maximising economically viable co-products and minimising waste resulting from lithium mining and processing operations, within a regulatory acceptable framework.
Transforming process routes to convert wastes to useful co-products. These include new soil amelioration materials, supplementary cementitious materials, construction sand and geopolymers, which can all be scaled up massively for the domestic market and potentially create niche products for global markets.
Proposed Benefit to WA
New and innovative waste management strategies to increase the lithium industry’s sustainability, reduce the sectors environmental footprint, lower CO2 emissions while creating new co-products leading to new jobs.
