Well deserved. As mentioned here - "These brilliant minds changed the way human civilization interacts with energy.” It all started with Whittingham.

QUOTE
Dr. Whittingham, who is now based at Binghamton University in New York state, sought to make a stronger battery during the 1970s oil crisis, with the goal of eliminating the use of fossil fuels in energy production. Working at Exxon, he made the first functional lithium battery, using pure lithium metal for the negative end, or anode, and another material for the positive end, called the cathode.

The flow of negatively charged electrons from the battery’s anode to the cathode generates power. The cathode was also laced with positively charged lithium particles, or ions, which helped make the battery rechargeable. The battery, however, was still too expensive and dangerous for broad commercialization. Oil prices also dropped in the 1980s, and Exxon discontinued the project, but the field continued to forge ahead.

“It’s been great to see how it grew,” Dr. Whittingham said. “Lots of people helped it along the way, and now it’s a multi-billion dollar industry.”

Dr. Goodenough, also researching alternative power sources in the wake of the oil crisis, increased the battery’s storage capacity in 1980. He did that by changing the material that makes up the battery’s positively charged end, or cathode, which receives electrons. Dr. Goodenough’s change doubled the power of the batteries to four volts, increasing their potential as an energy source.

Dr. Yoshino fine-tuned the batteries by making the anode end out of lithium ions rather than solid metal, incorporating them into a carbon material, petroleum coke. The change made the batteries safer, lighter, less expensive to produce, and capable of being recharged hundreds of times.

Sony Corp. was first to commercialize the lithium-ion battery in the early 1990s, followed by a joint venture of Asahi Kase i Corp., which Dr. Yoshino is affiliated with, and Toshiba Corp.

###Sad to see, but not surprised advertisers have withdrawn their support.###

100% correct, no advertiser would be interested once they saw the smut and the number of posters who can not post with out the F and the C word, the Mods should have shut that down at the very start.

Good to see real Mods doing good job here.

Sad to see, but not surprised advertisers have withdrawn their support. Lack of control by moderators on that site has turned it into a free for all slanging match with little stock discussion - what advertiser in their right minds wants to be associated with that? I was one of the early members there, when stock discussion was robust but fair. All POV should be respected - trolling however is another matter

Hopefully pilots et al don't bring their rubbish over here. If they do, it'll be another site where I'll close my membership.

Confirmed this morning - Townsville Battery Manufacturing Plant Feasibility Study Submitted to Queensland Government - eye watering A$3 bil capex for all 3 stages - hopefully the likes of the Saudi Group, and others, have deep pockets

QUOTE
• Feasibility Study investigates the viability of developing an 18 GWh lithium-ion battery manufacturing plant in Townsville over 3 stages

• Demonstrated sound financial viability on a project basis with an NPV of A$2.55 Billion and 21% IRR

Project capital cost for all 3 stages estimated at A$3 Billion with 1150 direct jobs when operating at full capacity

• Contributors to the Feasibility Study include GHD, Ausenco, Siemens, NAB and leading vendors of battery manufacturing equipment


QUOTE
Next Steps
The next phase of the project is now underway with the key milestones being::
• Development Approvals. Over the coming months a development application will be completed and submitted to Townsville City Council for formal consideration;
• Project Funding. iM3TSV’s project funding strategy will be executed with advice from NAB who are the exclusive financial advisor to the project; and
• Testing and Market Development. iM3TSV will commence battery cell production testing in a commercial setting at equipment vendor facilities. iM3 battery cells will be provided to
customers for independent evaluation and qualification as a precursor to procuring offtake contracts

Not sure if the MNS deal with Negma also involve the issue of warrants - not mentioned in the MNS PR but it seems to be something that Bracknor Capital Ltd has done with a number of their clients in the past.
