Zim makes inroads on electric vehicles
Published: 27 July 2018
Zimbabwe, the first and only African country to successfully set up a lithium-ion battery carbonate plant, is poised for a major role in the trillion dollar electric vehicles (EV) industry as it emerged its pilot plant is meeting or exceeding grade specifications.

The plant was built by Zimbabwe focused Australia Stock Exchange (ASX) listed electric vehicle batteries company Prospect Resources, for its Arcadia project near Harare.

Prospect recently completed building the lithium carbonate plant, which awaits commissioning by President Mnangagwa soon. However, Prospect Resources needs to first establish a 240 000 tonnes a year concentrate plant and later mobilise funding it requires to upgrade the pilot plant to a large-scale lithium carbonate plant.
