Concentrating on Cleantech Materials Production
Avalon’s sixth Sustainability Report's theme is Concentrating on Cleantech Materials Production - a theme chosen to reflect the company’s focus on defining profitable business opportunities in this emerging sector. In addition, ‘concentrating’ describes the initial focus of Avalon’s business development model: to produce valuable concentrates of lithium minerals from which lithium battery materials can then be extracted and refined. To be successful in the production of cleantech materials, one needs to be positioned with a resource and ready to serve the market when new technology creates demand for which the supply chain is unprepared.
