The Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre (FBICRC) is pleased to welcome ChemX to its community of 68 industry, government and research participants.

ChemX is a Perth-based materials technology and mining company with projects and processes to support the energy transition and a cleaner environment.

Chief Executive Officer Stedman Ellis said the FBICRC community welcomes the ChemX team as key participants in our research programs with an investment of $500,000 in the work of the FBICRC.

“ChemX is developing a new process to produce High Purity Alumina (HPA) which is a key component of lithium-ion batteries and develop its 100% owned manganese project on the Eyre Peninsula in SA focusing on manganese battery materials. The company brings materials technology, projects and processes which can help several FBICRC projects, including those related to active materials and electrochemical testing and help ensure a wider uptake of research and development outcomes,” Stedman said.

ChemX Managing Director David Leavy said the company was pleased to be part of the FBICRC.

“The development of a local battery technology and supply chain is an important part of the de-carbonisation effort and to capture the value-add opportunities for Australia’s world class mining industry. We are very much looking forward to working with the team at the FBICRC and joining its community of participants,” David said.

Our portfolio of 15 research and development projects span the battery value chain and bring together 68 industry participants, the federal government, four state governments (WA, QLD, SA and NT) and eight research partners with a combined value in excess of $120 million over six years.

A diversified battery industry is estimated to be worth $7.4 billion per annum, capable of supporting more than 34,000 jobs by 2030. Find out more in the Future Charge Report.
