Lithium Australia assesses feed sources ahead of pilot plant recommissioning


Lithium Australia has begun assessing suitable lithium feed sources to meet requirements for its pilot plant’s first year of operations once it has been recommissioned.

As part of the company’s strategy to create battery grade lithium from unconventional feed sources such as lepidolite and mine waste, Lithium Australia has been evaluating lepidolite lithium sources throughout Western Australia and Europe.

The company has developed its proprietary SiLeach process which can produce lithium chemicals for the battery sector using these feed sources.

“Lithium Australia is striving to improve the sustainability of the energy-metal sector,” Lithium Australia managing director Adrian Griffin said.
