Process development and R&D development of world-first lithium and renewable energy co-production process in Pre- Feasibility Study: Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project.
Life cycle assessment shows peerless environmental credentials including negative carbon footprint (Scope 1, 2, 3) for planned lithium production, a world first.
Working with Circulor to achieve world-first lithium traceability and dynamic CO2 measurement across supply chain.
Admission to Global Battery Alliance toward advancing battery materials traceability and transparency.
Carbon neutral now, not in the future
Commitment to the United Nations
Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in 2015, set the 2030 global agenda for sustainable development. The SDGs are a call for global action by national governments to end poverty, protect the planet and to ensure all people are able to enjoy peace and prosperity. We have aligned Vulcan’s approach to sustainability with the SDGs and will continue to work to meet these goals. Vulcan is particularly focusing on 10 of those SDGs: Good Health and Well-Being; Gender Equality; Clean Water and Sanitation; Affordable and Clean Energy; Decent Work and Economic Growth; Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure; Sustainable Cities and Communities; Responsible Consumption and Production; Climate Action; and Life on Land.

Hiking in the Bunter Sandstone reservoir rocks on the shoulder of the Upper Rhine Graben. For a geologist and the Vulcan project the Bunter Sandstone reservoir and its permeability is key. The Vulcan project combines the merit of renewable energy and the value of lithium with net zero emissions for batteries. To support the transitions from conventional to renewable energies and from combustion engine cars to electric cars and fight climate change is my main motive to help make Vulcan a success.
