Project Details

Albemarle Lithium Pty Ltd (Albemarle) is working to establish the Albemarle Kemerton Plant, a Lithium hydroxide Product manufacturing plant and associated infrastructure, within the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area (KSIA), approximately 17 kilometres north-east of Bunbury.

The Proposal is well advanced with planning of construction to commence in 2018 subject to final investment decision and receipt of required approvals. Initial production is scheduled to commence by 2020 and the Proposal has an intended operating life of approximately 25 years. The Plant will comprise a series of 20,000 tonne per annum (tpa) Lithium Hydroxide Product process trains. Initial production will commence with operation of a single train at a rate of 20,000 tpa, increasing in stages with the addition of up to four more 20,000 tpa trains to a potential output of 100,000 tpa of Lithium Hydroxide Product by around 2025.
