Expanding the supply of battery materials
We partner with our customers and other key stakeholders across the value chain to help build a sustainable supply chain at speed and scale as they work to meet the energy transition’s increasing demand for batteries materials.
We consult, engineer, and construct solutions, from the mining of raw materials through to all the intermediate processing steps for active materials manufacturing and recycling. With centers of excellence and project execution offices located around the world, our services are global.
Our battery material services
High quality cathode and anode materials require precise chemistries, crystal structures and coatings. We understand what it takes to deliver these facilities at scale, drawing on our experience from the mineral processing and fine chemicals industries. Projects we’ve worked on include:
- delivering a complete solution from graphite mine to anode material
- completion of a pre cursor cathode active material plant in Finland
- delivery of cathode active material and recycling facilities in Sweden.
With 8,000 professionals working across 12 principal mining, minerals, and metals offices, we deliver projects across the entire mining lifecycle. We’ve completed more than 200 projects across cobalt, graphite, lithium, manganese, nickel and vanadium including intermediate refining facilities.
Battery recycling technology is evolving as the industry faces raw materials shortages, sustainability ambitions and policies mandating recycled material content. We partner with our customers to recover material through several approaches utilizing our expertise in pyro-metallurgical, hydro-metallurgical and direct recycling routes.

It's a global race to meet demand for battery materials
Electric vehicle demand is growing thanks to new government legislation. But this demand is putting pressure on the battery materials value chain. The pace and scale of production growth makes securing and sourcing battery-grade minerals and metals a high priority.
It traditionally takes decades to develop new mines from greenfield deposits. But we’ve developed new, standardized approaches to deliver battery materials infrastructure at scale.
We also support the commercialization of sustainable extraction technologies such as Direct Lithium Extraction through our technology partnership offerings.
The search for socially responsible suppliers is on, and successful projects depend on collaboration across the supply chain.
The complexity and supply challenges of these projects is increasing. The right expertise across the value chain, with sustainable solutions embedded throughout, is needed to ensure success in a low carbon future. And we have the people, skills and expertise to support that vision."
