2020 Symposium on Lithium Supply Chain for a Green and Mobile Energy Future, Online, Wednesday, 18. November 2020
About this Event
The 2020 symposium on Lithium Supply Chain will be held at UNSW Sydney CBD Campus, Australia on 19th -20th November 2020 but due to current NSW Government restrictions only livestreamed tickets are available for purchase.
With the world increasingly shifting towards renewable energy technologies, lithium is fast becoming a hot commodity. The metal is an integral component of batteries and is in high demand for use in electric and hybrid vehicles. While lithium is not yet in short supply, there is a finite amount on earth, and all aspects of the supply chain must be carefully managed to ensure the valuable resource is extracted and utilised in a sustainable and ethical manner.
The program will present the latest science and industry updates relating to all stages and external aspects of the supply chain, including: availability and competing demands, clean technologies for extraction and processing, enforceable legal frameworks to protect the environment and finally an economic framework that ensures maximum utility from this limited resource.
This event will be livestreamed using Zoom Video Webinar. Livestream links will be issued by email to the ticket holder after registration has closed.
