Neo Lithium has successfully completed and tested a lithium carbonate pilot plant to Catamarca, Argentina.

Neo Lithium tested the plant, built by the Chilean University of Concepción, in Chile, using artificial brine and concentrated about 4% lithium brine in its pilot evaporation ponds, in order to start production of lithium carbonate.

Director and chief operating officer of Neo Lithium, Gabriel Pindar, said: “We hope the proposed feasibility study will support that the plant can produce battery grade lithium at one of the most competitive cash costs of the market.”

Standard Lithium hails battery quality material milestone

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

Canadian chemicals company Standard Lithium has produced its first quantity of battery-quality lithium carbonate at a prototype pilot plant.

The chemical company said the lithium carbonate (>99.56% purity) was produced at the company’s lithium carbonate crystallisation pilot plant operated by Saltworks Technologies— at their facility in British Columbia.

Dr Andy Robinson, president and chief operating officer of Standard Lithium, said: “Whilst we had previously made ‘battery quality’ carbonate at bench scale, using our proprietary technology, we consider it an important milestone that we can achieve the same very high levels of purity at the larger scale of our prototype pilot.”
