Kemerton Expansion



Albemarle's expansion project has the potential to double the capacity of Kemerton operations, securing Western Australia's position as a critical player in the global lithium industry and green energy future.

The worldwide push to reduce carbon emissions and the boom in lithium storage and electric vehicle manufacturing has boosted demand for high-quality lithium and refined products from safe and reliable free-trade status sources like Australia.

The Kemerton plant is designed to process nearly 1 million tonnes of spodumene ore concentrate per annum, sourced from the Talison Greenbushes operation. 

With construction of processing Train 3 now underway, expansion at Kemerton is an exciting opportunity for the State and the South West region, which will continue to deliver significant economic benefits through jobs in construction and in operations, and opportunities for local supply, business and community investment.
