Spot lithium prices may be down, but Stardust Power believes that makes now an even more important time to build new US-based lithium refineries.

This week, we speak with Roshan Pujari, Co-founder and CEO of Stardust Power and Chandra Patel, CEO and Chairman of Global Partner Acquisition Corp. II (NASDAQ:GPAC).

The two announced a $490 million business combination in November of 2023.

Roshan explains how its plans to build its lithium refinery in Oklahoma are progressing and why he believes the company’s methods should command a premium for its resources.

Chandra meanwhile tells us how his team is working through a dealmaking playbook involving both SPAC IPOs and those that they can take over post-IPO like Global Partner II.

Give it a listen.
