Following the award of an Advanced Manufacturing Growth Fund grant in January 2018, Calix has been working on the design of a novel materials manufacturing facility at its Bacchus Marsh plant, targeting advanced cathode materials for lithium ion batteries, as well as numerous other advanced materials applications.

The project has completed Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and is undergoing the hazard and operability study (HAZOP) phase before progressing into detailed design and construction. Calix continues to target end of April 2019 to finalise construction, with start-up and commissioning commencing by August 1, 2019.

Calix’s commercialisation strategy for this application of its technology is to develop new “dropin” materials that improve the performance of lithium ion batteries, and ultimately investigate alternate chemistries for improved battery performance, based upon its unique “kiln” technology’s ability to produce highly porous micro-crystals.
