Speaking at the launch of the report Lithium Valley: Building the Case for Energy Metals and Battery Manufacturing for Western Australia, Professor Newman said, “Suddenly WA has become critical to security of supply for battery metals as we are the only place in the world that has them all.”
The report covers the future in lithium batteries and electric vehicles and shows how Western Australia can become the hub for processing, making and recycling batteries.
“Not only do we have the resources but we also have the technological capability and skilled workforce to service this emerging industry,” Professor Newman said. “The world needs us and we can create ‘Lithium Valley’ to service this need.”
Acting Regional Development Australia (RDA Perth) Chair Elizabeth Taylor added, “We are very excited about this report. It will set the benchmark to measure progress in developing this potential. RDA Perth is enthusiastic about the possibilities that exist through this initiative that will drive new business investment and job growth into the future.”
