Battery Materials & Technology

Producing high purity chemicals for a clean energy future

A clean energy future is of worldwide significance, with a growing number of countries, cities, businesses and institutions pledging to achieve net-zero emissions.

Transformation to electrification is happening at pace, accelerating the global demand for the critical raw materials required for battery chemicals and technology. For us, those critical raw materials are mineral resources that contain the strategic metals required for decarbonisation, namely, lithium, nickel, cobalt, copper, manganese, vanadium, platinum group metals and rare earth elements.

Leveraging our world class technical capabilities, technology and know-how, we will participate in each stage of the supply chain from the processing of critical raw materials into intermediate products through to the production of high purity battery chemicals at our Battery Chemicals Complex in Yanbu, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Battery Chemicals Complex will feature a Nickel Chemicals Plant, a Lithium Chemicals Plant and a Cathode Active Materials Plant.

Delivering tailored battery materials

Our unique integrated business model means we will deliver battery materials for global markets.

As part of our upstream operations in Western Australia, we will produce intermediate products including Mixed Hydroxide Precipitate (MHP) as feedstock for our downstream production of Nickel, Cobalt and Manganese Sulphate at our Nickel Chemicals Plant. Our Lithium Chemicals Plant will produce Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate (LHM) using Spodumene Concentrate from upstream supplies from Western Australia.

Our midstream and downstream operations will include the production of high purity chemicals and cathode active materials (CAM) in collaboration with customers and tailored to their individual cathode chemistry requirements. This positions EVM uniquely as the only battery materials and technology company outside of China to produce cathode active materials with long term supply of critical raw materials based on upstream integration of supply chains for growth markets in UK, Europe and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
