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?”
