About Latrobe Magnesium
Latrobe Magnesium is developing a magnesium production plant in Victoria's Latrobe Valley using its world-first patented extraction process. LMG intends to extract and sell magnesium metal and cementitious material from industrial fly ash, which is currently a waste stream from brown coal power generation.
LMG is expected to complete its feasibility study validating its combined hydromet / thermal reduction process that extracts the metal in the next month. Production from its initial 5,000 tonne per annum magnesium plant is due to start at the end of 2017. The plant will be in the heart of Victoria's coal power generation precinct, providing immediate access to feedstock.
LMG plans to sell the refined magnesium under long-term contracts to Australian and overseas users. Currently, Australia imports 100% of the 10,000 tonnes annually consumed.
Magnesium has the best strength-to-weight ratio of all common structural metals and is increasingly used in the manufacture of car parts, laptop computers, mobile phones and power tools.
The LMG project is at the forefront of environmental benefit - by recycling power plant waste, avoiding landfill and is a low CO2 emitter.
