Battery Materials & Technology

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

The energy transition and transformation to electrification is accelerating global demand for critical raw materials, high purity chemicals and battery materials required in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage.

Leveraging our world class battery materials technology, technical capabilities and know-how will enable EVM to participate in each stage of the battery materials supply chain required by electric vehicle and battery cell manufacturers. In doing so, we will address the most strategic issue facing the global rechargeable battery industry in growth markets in Europe, North America and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – the long-term deficit in battery chemicals and battery materials from geopolitically aligned supply chains.

Battery materials for global markets

Our unique integrated supply chains mean we will produce high purity chemicals and battery materials tailored to the individual cathode chemistry requirements of customers.

Our acquisition of the Johnson Matthey Battery Materials and Technology Business in the United Kingdom compliments EVM’s upstream inventory of critical minerals from Australia and midstream Battery Chemicals Complex in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

As part of our upstream operations, we will secure and produce intermediate products including Spodumene Concentrate containing about 6% lithium oxide (SC6) and Mixed Hydroxide Precipitate containing nickel, cobalt and manganese (MHP) as feedstock for midstream chemical processing at EVM’s Battery Chemicals Complex.

The Battery Chemicals Complex will initially comprise a Lithium Chemicals Plant producing Lithium Hydroxide Monohydrate (LHM) with future opportunity to potentially include a Nickel Chemicals Plant and a Cathode Active Materials Plant.

Our downstream operations include world-leading battery materials and technology, as well as product development centres.
