Who we are
ChemX Materials is a materials technology and mining company developing projects and processes to deliver solutions for energy transition and a cleaner environment.
The company is initially focused on 2 areas. The first is in-house developed technology to process and supply High Purity Alumina (HPA) to the Lithium Ion Battery and LED & Semiconductor markets.
The second area is the Eyre Peninsula Halloysite and Kaolin Project focusing on developing materials for Hydrogen storage, CO2 Capture and other technologies utilising nanotube technology.
Our innovative solutions focus on ways to reduce our environmental footprint while also significantly lowering production costs.
Systematic Approach to Economic Development that Benefits Business, Society and the Environment
Customer centric research and development lead product development
Strong relationships across the value chain to meet the needs of today and tomorrow
Cutting edge production technology with lower costs and smaller environmental footprint
Positive impact on the societies and local cultures that the company operates in.
The Innovative HiPurA HPA Process
- The HiPurA HPA process is easily scalable in capacity as demand grows
- Not tied to mine production – feedstock is a widely available chemical allowing for multiple production locations close to end users
- Initial test work suggests low capital and operating costs
- Able to produce various grades and products for different end uses
- Target is for a pilot plant of 200-400tpa capacity within 12-18 months and ramp-up from there
“Working with leading researchers and industry experts to identify opportunities and develop production technologies to commercialise next generation materials is a key component of our strategy”.

Eyre Peninsula Project
- Kaolinite and halloysite have been identified at a number of locations on the Eyre Peninsula tenements which is located 115km west of Whyalla, close to workforce and infrastructure.
- EL5815 and EL5920 cover a total of 866 km2
What is Halloysite
- Referred to as halloysite nano-tubes (HNT), it varies in length from 0.1 to 10.0 µm with an internal diameters range from 10-20 nm. High purity HNT’s are non-toxic and have a high thermal tolerance
- With alumina lining the inside of the tube plus silica lining the outside, it opens up a number of potential uses including separating out Hydrogen and Oxygen into storage and capturing CO2.
