The Premier Forum for Battery Minerals, Exploration, and the Supply Chain

Welcome to the BATTERY MINERALS & SUPPLY CHAIN 2024 Exhibition and Conference, where leading battery mineral miners and upstream explorers will meet with battery manufacturers and investors in Perth, Australia, to explore the latest trends in battery mineral exploration, processing, and the supply chain.

In the race to find alternatives to fossil fuels, as major global car manufacturers rush to build new electric vehicles, demand for the commodities which make up lithium-ion batteries powering EVs is beginning to skyrocket. The recent ​geopolitical tensions in key mineral-producing regions and underinvestment in battery mineral exploration during the last few years have disrupted the global battery supply chain for lithium, nickel, graphite, cobalt, and manganese. The industry is seeking insights into the demand-supply dynamics that contribute to the price volatility of key battery minerals and new approaches to mineral and metallurgical processing and battery chemistry. Western Australia's battery mineral resources can augment supply and energise the global battery supply chain.

The conference would provide an opportunity to hear from explorers on the subsequent big discoveries and novel extraction and processing technology to boost production, address supply chain concerns, and meet automotive manufacturers' needs. The conference will provide a platform for mining companies to showcase their battery minerals projects to prospective investors.

Key topics on this year's agenda include:

  • Market intelligence on battery minerals demand and supply dynamics
  • Exploring next-generation battery chemistry and a path towards cost-optimisation
  • Supply chain strategies from global battery manufacturers and major mineral producers
  • Effect of battery mineral availability and recovery through battery recycling initiatives
  • Status of new development projects in global upstream battery mineral exploration
  • Upcoming regulations and ESG guidelines toward responsible mineral extractions
  • Case studies of innovative mining processes in battery mineral production

This year's BATTERY MINERALS & SUPPLY CHAIN 2024 is set to become the world's leading exhibition and conference exclusively for upstream battery mineral miners and explorers and downstream processing to meet and collaborate with end-users, including battery manufacturers, to address mineral quality and critical supply chains. In addition, investors and financiers would have a broad overview of the market outlook of battery minerals as an industry and a snapshot of the major upcoming projects to address supply chain challenges.

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders across the battery manufacturing supply chain to network, build cross-market relationships, and discuss the real challenges and opportunities in battery mineral exploration, processing, and the supply chain.
