Lithium Australia produces lithium battery anode material - The West Australian

Last updated Tuesday, October 19, 2021 05:37 ET , Source: NewsService

ASX-listed Lithium Australia’s wholly owned subsidiary, VSPC is now producing commercial quality lithium titanium oxide, or “LTO” battery anode powder. VSPC says its LTO exceeds industry performance benchmarks and that further research and development, including work on niobium-based anode powders, is underway. Lithium Australia is building an armoury of lithium battery technology in readiness for the lithium boom and its latest work on lithium battery anodes adds to its recent successful journey to produce “lithium ferro phosphate” and “lithium manganese ferro phosphate” battery cathode powders.

VSPC says it has been able to produce an LTO anode powder that surpasses current industry standards through a patented, slurry-based process that cuts calcination time and provides a higher quality end-product.

VSPC’s LTO product was assessed against five of its competitors where it achieved a specific capacity of about 169 milliampere hours per gram. VSPC’s closest competitor reached a capacity of around 164 milliampere hours per gram.

To achieve the performance desired for next-generation LIBs, improved anodes are also required. VSPC’s patented technologies are applicable to the production of both anode and cathode materials. Currently, VSPC produces the world’s highest performing LFP cathode powder and is among only a handful of companies capable of producing high-energy-density LMFP. Market demand for advanced nickel- and cobalt-free batteries puts VSPC in a unique position...
