Western Australia


Albemarle is now proposing to construct a lithium processing plant in the Kemerton Strategic Industrial Area (KSIA) of Western Australia. When complete, this plant, located approximately 17km North East of Bunbury, will process spodumene ore that will be used to produce lithium hydroxide and a sodium sulfate by-product.

Construction for this site is expected to commence in late 2018 with production rates in 2020 starting at 20,000 tonnes per annum (tpa). This investment project of more than $1B will create many opportunities for Australia and WA, most notably serving as an economic multiplier for the region, state and country.
