GWI to sponsor 2020 Symposium on Lithium Supply Chain

With the world increasingly shifting towards renewable energy technologies, lithium is fast becoming a hot commodity. While not yet in short supply, there is a finite amount of lithium 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 2020 Symposium on Lithium Supply Chain for a Green and Mobile Energy Future will be held at the UNSW Sydney CBD Campus on Thursday 19 - Friday 20 November 2020. Sponsored by UNSW-GWI, the two-day event is being jointly organised by representatives from UNSW, the Australian Research Council Research Hub for Integrated Energy Storage Solutions, Deakin University and Monash University, and will feature a series of presentations, discussions and workshops based on the most critical of lithium supply chain topics.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Prof Aleksandar Nikoloski, Academic Chair of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering, and Extractive Metallurgy at Murdoch University; and Prof Huanting Wang, a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering,  Associate Dean (International) of Faculty of Engineering and Director of the Monash Centre for Membrane Innovation at Monash University.

The call for abstracts for the 2020 Lithium Supply Chain symposium will open on 1 July, with representatives from all sectors invited to submit their abstracts for presentation at the November event.

Registration will open in August and attendees will have the option to attend in person or remotely.
