TOMRA Mining’s experience in the design and installation of large-scale ore sorting plants, as well as its collaborative approach, was the key to the successful design of the world’s largest lithium sorting plant. The installation has already started and is expected to reach completion in late 2023.
Pilbara Minerals to install TOMRA technology in lithium sorting plant
Pilbara Minerals owns the world’s largest, independent hard-rock lithium mine. It is located in Western Australia and produces a spodumene and tantalite concentrate. By pursuing a growth strategy to become a sustainable, low-cost lithium producer, the company has become a major player in the rapidly growing lithium supply chain. This investment will ensure the expansion of its large-scale operation in order to meet the increasing demand for lithium driven by sustainable energy technologies, such as electric vehicles and energy storage.
