The world's scientists and energy researchers convene this week at the 21st International Meeting on Lithium Batteries (IMLB 2022) to discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by lithium ion (Li-ion) energy technology.

Australia’s national science agency, the CSIRO, is hosting IMLB 2022 for the first time, leveraging the opportunity to highlight Australia's resource strength in minerals used in Li-ion batteries, which are increasingly being used in electric vehicle manufacture and energy storage.

Dozens of scientists, researchers and academics are conducting presentations and talks over the five-day programme, including the Australian government's special advisor on low emissions technology Professor Alan Finkel, and Professor Stan Whittingham, 2019 Nobel Prize winner in chemistry and creator of the first lithium battery in 1976.

IMLB 2022 is being supported by the Australian Trade and Investment Commission, Australian Battery Society, New South Wales (NSW) Government and Business Events Sydney (BESydney).

BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith said securing meetings like IMLB 2022 are part of BESydney's targeted strategy to attract events that align with the NSW Government’s priority sectors.
