Austvolt Cathode Precursor Material Manufacturing Plant

Austvolt is poised to be a key manufacturer of cathode precursor material in the global integrated lithium battery supply chain through the development of the first commercial-scale precursor manufacturing plant in Australia.

Cathode precursor material (pCAM) is a high-value and specifically engineered material that contains nickel, cobalt, and manganese. When combined with lithium it becomes the cathode material for lithium batteries. By developing a commercial scale cathode precursor material manufacturing plant in Western Australia, Austvolt will be able to guarantee ethical sourcing and traceability, while helping drive Australia’s advanced manufacturing ambitions.

Austvolt has been granted a 9-hectare land allocation for the cathode precursor material manufacturing plant in the Rockingham-Kwinana Strategic Industrial Area by the Western Australian State Government. The plant will have the capacity to produce 40,000 Tonnes per annum of pCAM.

When you create your Investment Project you will need to provide details on how it aligns with WA State Governments business sentiment and investment strategies – for example, the impact on jobs, tourism and the Western Australian economy.

3. Submit your investment project for review

Your investment project will be reviewed by our panel to ensure your investment opportunity is an "investment ready" project and satisfies our guidelines and approval process.

Investment ready means that the investment proponent has a clearly articulated business and/or project plan which demonstrates:

  • project feasibility and delivery, including risk management.
  • the strength, experience, capabilities and capacity to execute the proposed project;
  • a growth plan, and how that growth will be funded; and
  • how the investment proponent will need to be in the correct business structure.

3. Submit your project for review

We will review your Project Brief and work with you to make sure it is ready for investors.

4. Approval and listing

We communicate with you via email as you create, save, submit and revise your investment opportunity. Our team may contact you directly during the review and revision process. We will always confirm by email after your investment project has been approved by us for listing.
