Mine waste powers battery business

VSPC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lithium Australia (LA), has successfully manufactured lithium-ion cathode material and lithium-ion batteries themselves from lithium mining waste.

This announcement marks the success of an extended project for LA, after BEST Battery Briefing reported last August that they had obtained permission to extract lithium from mining dumps in Western Australia.

Waste tri-lithium phosphate— which is a direct waste product from lithium mining— was successfully converted into lithium-iron-phosphate cathode material at LA’s laboratory and pilot plant facility in Brisbane, Queensland.
