Australia Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre

Last updated: 4 November 2022

The Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre brings together industry, government, and research organizations to support a national research agenda of a circular economy approach across the battery value chain.

The Centre implements three research programmes: (1) Industry Development, (2) Resources, Processing, and Recycling, and (3) Manufacturing, Testing, and Deployment. Under these programmes, funding is available for the following research themes related to critical minerals:

  • Demonstrated technology for provenance and traceability for battery minerals and metals with linked environmental indices
  • Environmental and waste management strategies from extraction of materials to the end of life of batteries
  • Cost-competitive resources processing of battery minerals 
  • Battery recycling, repurposing and reuse
