Cornish Lithium: establishing a sustainable extraction industry in the UK

    This eBook provides an insight into how Cornish Lithium is enabling new eco-technologies by establishing a strong and sustainable extraction industry in the UK.

    Cornish Lithium is an innovative company enabling eco-technologies through the extraction of lithium and other battery metals in Cornwall with the aim of establishing a battery metals hub for the UK.

    Establishing responsible extraction of lithium and other battery metals is key to enabling the development of a battery manufacturing industry, which is necessary for the UK’s transition to renewable energy and supporting the automotive industry’s shift to electric vehicles.

    The development of such an industry will contribute to the UK Government’s stated goal of decarbonisation through clean growth, and a transition to a green and circular economy and is in line with the aims of the UK Government’s Integrated Review announced in March 2021.
