Lithium Australia’s managing director Adrian Griffin said: “We are pleased to partner with Envirostream Australia, the country’s leader in recycling lithium-ion batteries.

“The alliance strengthens our resolve to create a 'circular’ economy by recovering metals from spent batteries, then rebirthing the battery components using our ground-breaking, patented cathode-powder production technology through VSPC LTD.

"Recovering and adding value to battery waste material is a great step forward for the environment, a positive move for Australia’s strategic minerals strategy and a great opportunity for Lithium Australia and its shareholders.”
