Cornish Lithium Ltd, the innovative eco-technology company developing lithium extraction projects in Cornwall, UK, welcomes Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s comments regarding lithium extraction in Cornwall, made in the Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, that will drive investment in domestic industries such as technology and alternative energy.
Jeremy Wrathall, Founder and CEO of Cornish Lithium, said:
“I am encouraged by the Prime Minister’s commitments outlined in his Integrated Review today which stated that in addition to accelerating the transition to a zero-carbon global economy, its priority actions will include continuing to explore opportunities around domestic extraction and processing of critical minerals, such as lithium, as well as their recovery, recycling and reuse to establish a viable circular economy. Cornish Lithium is well-placed to deliver a domestic supply of lithium from Cornwall to support the Government’s vision of creating strong domestic foundations that will secure a prosperous and resilient UK in 2030, through the development of a domestic raw materials supply chain and a mineral extraction industry to support it. A supply of lithium is key in the development of clean, green technologies that will contribute to achieving the country’s net zero emissions target.”
