    Hi all

    as per @bcjk3 post yesterday, [read it in full here], at the Paydirt Minerals conference in Perth, Ken Brinsden was very upbeat about the May 11 MOU with Eastern-states based Calix  to build a an ESG friendly demonstration plant;

    PLS well down the path of changing HR lithium industry (Calix), due to ESG (not exact words he used but pretty much the thematic)
    - Calcination via Calix is probably better than industry norm with conventional calcination technique atm.
    - Calix flash calcines the fines concentrate in the period of time it takes the fines spod to fall down the heated tube. It's electrified, powered by renewable energy. Key to future of lithium raw material supply chain and taking carbon out.
    - Game changer as far as the industry is concerned. Higher value lithia salt created with 96% less waste. Deal the lithium downstream.
    - Opens up new geographical markets NA/Europe etc

    I thought it might be useful to start a thread focused on Calix to follow developments with PLS

    As per the May 11 announcement [reference], PLS agreed to fund a scoping study that will produce ‘several thousand tonnes’  of lithia salts on site at Pilganoora, followed, potentially,  by a ‘demonstration plant’.
    And then?
    And when?

    [link to full announcement]

    ...... Given PLS’ long term hints to background work towards sustainability it’s clear the news did not come out of the blue?

    For others who do not quite understand what Calix is about, the  linked Eureka Report below, dated March 16, 2021, from Alan Kohler has a relevant very accessible interview with Calix CEO, Phil Hodgson, with accompanying transcript.
    ... “Calix eyes battery market with kiln technology
    CEO of Calix, Phil Hodgson, discusses the three main uses of its kiln technology, including for lithium-ion batteries & its recent share price surge.... disallowed link/investment-news/calix-eyes-battery-market-with-kiln-technology/149543

    NB also a basic 49 second video from 2012 on the basic principles.
    @SimonGr is this still relevant to the technology please ?
