PPK Group’s (PPK) has flagged the expansion of Deakin University’s manufacturing hub as a potential benefit for one of its companies.

The mining service’s interest lies through its 51.9 per cent ownership of Li-S Energy, which has been named as one of the first confirmed tenants at the expanded facility at Deakin.

The $20 million government-funded upgrade will double the size of the ManuFutures advanced manufacturing hub in a bid to expand the range of services to support product design and engineering in regional Victoria.

It is also where Li-S Energy plans to build a battery testing plant to broaden the application of the battery technology it is currently developing.

More specifically, the unlisted company is looking to incorporate boron nitride nanotubes as a Nano-insulator to protect battery components and enable superior energy storage and re-charging functionality.

PPK Group shares are up a solid 7.48 per cent following the announcement, trading at $5.75 at 1:10 pm AEDT.
