Our Lithium chemicals division boasts a suite of technologies designed to improve battery industry sustainability and better protect the environment through the exploitation of – essentially – any source of lithium, including end-of-life batteries.
Innovative and sustainable options for the production of lithium-ion battery chemicals
A circular battery economy will contribute to net zero
Long-term partnership with ANSTO (Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation).
Ability to process all potential lithium feedstocks, including those generally deemed ‘waste products’.
Advanced cathode materials
Conversion of LP to lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) and lithium manganese ferro phosphate (LMFP).
An extensive intellectual property portfolio, amassed over a significant number of years.
Receipt of an Australian federal government CRC-P grant to further develop the LieNA® process.
Lithium processing technologies
LP produced via LieNA® or SiLeach® can be further refined to create ultra-pure (>99.9%) Li3PO4, enhancing recovery options for lithium in brines and presenting an alternative to the production of lithium hydroxide by conventional spodumene thermal conversion refineries.
In fact, high-purity LP is the ideal lithium chemical feedstock for VSPC, which plans to contribute to the exponentially expanding global LFP battery market.
Our innovative lithium chemical processing technologies are the result of extensive R&D on the part of an experienced inhouse team, combined with partnerships that provide some of the best technical expertise available.
In particular, our strong collaboration with the Minerals division of ANSTO has resulted in inventive and rewarding results.
Securing the suite of technologies in our Lithium chemicals division is an extensive intellectual property portfolio that includes a number of granted patents and patent applications across a range of applicable jurisdictions.
