We are delighted to advise that we have been awarded $340, 000 by the NSW Government to undertake the upfront engineering design work needed to build a community-based battery recycling pilot plant.
The latest in a long line of effective government and industry partnerships facilitated by the FBICRC, funding for this vital clean-tech initiative will ensure that recycling research outcomes are rapidly commercialised.
The grant was one of 19 awarded in Stream 1 of the Government’s $130m Critical Minerals and High-Tech Metals Activation Fund and builds on the FBICRC’s battery recycling, reuse and repurposing project currently underway with Curtin University.
CEO Shannon O’Rourke welcomed the investment by the NSW Government saying that as battery usage is predicted to dramatically increase over the coming decade, recycling and repurposing battery materials will be critical to the circular economy.
