Episode 88: Minviro / Life Cycle Assessments

Robert Pell and Alex Grant from Minviro, pioneers in producing Life Cycle Assessments for the lithium industry, are my guests. Minviro is focused on the environmental portion of the emerging and increasingly significant field of ESG.

We discuss:

The development, importance and value of life cycle assessments

Impact categories

Properly quantifying results vs “tick the box” exercises

The need for 3rd party reviews

OEMs desire for ESG compliant material but unwillingness to invest in it

How seriously life cycle assessments are being taken by the industry

And for those of you that are Ayn Rand fans, after this episode you may be asking “Who is Sarah?” instead of “Who is John Galt?”
