NANOTECHNOLOGY COMPANY OFFERS A CLEAR ROADMAP TO A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Whilst at VSPC (Very Small Particle Company), Adrian Griffin, Lithium Australia CEO, painted the big picture of the challenges and opportunities in moving to a true circular economy for lithium and other essential batteries elements.  The current focus on a linear economy model means that significant volumes of lithium and other metals arising from the mining and battery recycling sectors are not being recovered.   The result is that far from realising the circular potential these industries represent, we are instead wasting valuable resources in massive volumes.   VSCP provides an invaluable road map for innovation, capacity building and investment models needed to move to a true circular economy.  ABRI Members will be able to download the Adrian’s presentation from the Members Only area of our website once the General Meeting Notes are released late next week.
