The title of the project is "MRIWA Project M479 - Solution purification and valuable by-products formation during the production of battery-grade lithium."
Along with LIT, this collaboration includes MRIWA, Venus Metals Corporation Ltd (ASX: VMC) and importantly Murdoch University, which is renowned for world-class research with real-world impact.
Adrian Griffin, managing director, commented:
"It is gratifying to see the formal commencement of the MRIWA project, which dovetails with other research being undertaken by Lithium Australia, at Murdoch University, and of course our continuing program with ANSTO Minerals (a division of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation).
"Government support has enabled Lithium Australia to build partnerships that provide some of the world’s best expertise to advance its Sileach™ process – the only hydrometallurgical process with the ability to recover lithium from all silicates."
