WA-lithium

A new national lithium research hub in Western Australia is hoped to take the state a step closer to developing a battery manufacturing industry.

The $135 million centre, announced today, will operate out of Curtin University in Perth and will look at how to better source minerals and process them into chemicals that are used to develop batteries.

The research centre will be jointly funded by the Federal Government, the State Government and industry to the tune of $53 million.

It will also receive $82 million of in-kind support from the sector.
