Game-changing energy hub another step closer to reality
A MULTIMILLION dollar refinery has been declared a ‘prescribed project’, which would support thousands of jobs and “kickstart a new age in industry” for North Queensland.
Queensland Pacific Metals plans to build a battery metals refinery (pictured) in the proposed Lansdown EcoIndustrial Precinct south of
Townsville. If financed, the company wants to begin construction of the proposed Townsville Energy Chemicals Hub in 2022 with the possibility of production starting in late 2023.
The Lansdown Eco-industrial Precinct would be a major milestone for the city with the project expected to become Northern Australia’s first environmentally sustainable advanced manufacturing, processing and technology hub.
