In recent years, through increased efforts in technological innovation and R&D, the company has visibly strengthened its core competitiveness. This is exemplified by our impressive range of achievements, including 61 state-awarded patents (18 of which are invention patents), 3 new products deemed essential in China, and a High-Tech Innovative Product of Sichuan Province, as well as being awarded second and third prizes in the Provincial Science and Technology Progress Awards and commended for 3 of our scientific and technological achievements. We have accepted a leading role in drafting and formulating over 20 lithium-related industrial and national standards, undertaken two national torch programs (Chinese program for the fostering and development of new domestic technology-based industries) and are the primary founder of the Lithium Industry Branch of China Non-Ferrous Metals Industry Association (CNMIA).
Seven strategic emerging industries have been recently named as the leading and pillar industries of China’s economy. Three of these seven are new energy, new materials and new-energy vehicles. In March 2013, the National Development and Reform Committee (NDRC) elaborated on this by specifying that lithium ion battery materials were vital for key products and services of strategic emerging industries including lithium manganate, lithium iron phosphate, ternary materials and other anode materials, new lithium manganate, lithium iron phosphate and ternary materials. Since becoming public, Tianqi Lithium has never ceased to exhibit the utmost degree of diligence and responsibility, Our admirable rate of growth can be attributed to our efforts in scale expansion, regular technical upgrades, quality improvement and clean production.
