Future Battery Industries
The Future Battery Industries Coperative Research Centre (FBI CRC) is enabling the growth of battery industries to power Australia's future. It brings together industry, researchers, governments and the community to position Australia as a leader in the global battery revolution.
ChemCentre is one of almost 60 partners in the FBI CRC hosted at Curtin University.
ChemCentre’s contribution will draw on our significant expertise in the development and application of new modelling tools, environmental risk identification, mine closure planning and predicting potential long term risks of utilising waste-derived materials.
This expertise and research findings to date will fill significant knowledge gaps for industry and government operating in the WA mining sector.
In addition, these tests and tools will generate considerable chemistry-rich data that could be used to inform the development of new mineral processing and extraction methods for the rarer Lithium bearing ores.
This is of special relevance given that optimal extraction methods for lithium bearing ores are still under development.
Importantly, with Western Australia positioning to become a leading international exporter of future battery components, ChemCentre is working to make valuable contributions towards the development of a certification framework for the purity and quality of battery components.
