The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry in Queensland is pleased to invite you to its first Energy & Resources Series event of the year dedicated to Critical Minerals: the new battery supply chain on Friday 6 May at the premises of our Corporate member Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
As the world races to electrify ever-more vehicles and industrial processes, Queensland's wealth of experience in minerals will play a key role in sustainably supplying the metals needed to make that energy available when and where needed.
This seminar will bring together the Queensland government, represented by Tony Knight, Chief Government Geologist at the Department of Resources, and Chris Shaw, Deputy Director General at the Department of Energy & Public Works, alongside multiple players in the critical minerals supply chain, including Prony Resources (formerly Vale NC), operator of one of the nickel mines in New Caledonia and nominated supplier of Tesla; the Association of Mining and Exploration Companies (AMEC); and finally, Pure Battery Technologies, mineral processor and operator of K & E Germany, and owner of proposed nickel and cobalt refineries in WA and Queensland.
Facilitated by Jerome Wahl, Director CSE ANZ / New Caledonia at Dassault Systèmes 3DS, our panel will discuss the current steps in the transition towards renewable energies, and what it means in terms of energy storage and access to critical minerals.
The event will start with a light buffet breakfast, kindly provided by our host and sponsor Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
