Project Details

Project Description

This project aims to transform Australia’s resource recovery industry by equipping it with an advanced manufacturing capability, focusing on small-scale manufacturing of materials recovered from battery and consumer waste. The project expects to deliver new knowledge in high-temperature reactions of complex battery waste and develop selective synthesis techniques to transform waste into valuable materials and products, including metallic alloys, oxides and activated carbon, of low toxicity. Expected outcomes include industry adoption of commercially viable processes where low value, complex waste is reformed into higher value materials and products, creating jobs and providing environmental and economic benefits.
